Steering feedback is so important if you want to enjoy driving. I agree the new electronic systems are more efficient, but can be rather vague, most car makers use artificial weighting to mimic heavier feedback, which works to a degree. But the old hydraulic system I had in the Porsche was superb, you could feel exactly what the front wheels were doing, which made opposite lock during tail happy moments alot easier to control. Porsche must be one of the best in the business as true makers of so called driver's cars, and steering feel helps highlight just how well thier cars handle

More powerful yes, but that isn't the main point of this specific conversation. Which has the most feel, the most life in their driving. In that respect the classic Ferrari will win each time.

The US briefly had an option for full manual steering in the Alfa Romero 4C.

My first 3 cars or so had no power assisted steering at all, they had to change the questions in my driving test as a result. But I believe I learnt alot about feedback and how a car handles and what affects handling in my first few months of driving, even if I did put my fist car into a wall after 6 months lol...
