Purpose-built supercars and weather needs are an exception. Simply wanting AWD to be faster than someone on the street is stupid.

I'd never take AWD unless it was absolutely necessary. You're insane to think that AWD takes an equal amount of skill to drive as a RWD car of equal class. I'm assuming you've never really pushed a car or learned how to drive on the edge grip levels. It's infinitely more fun to drive a RWD car that has a better weight balance, an adjustable demeanor, and a controllable rear end.
