No, not the Corvair, but rather Barack Hussein Obama, who admits to taking a 1970s era Ford Granada to well above 80mph--and then complains that it didn't handle well at that speed.
Memo to Barack; the speed limit was 55mph at the time, and most roads were built for a speed of 55-70mph. Yes, when you exceed the design speed of both your vehicle and the road you're driving it on, you will have some problems. Your mileage will also go down. However, the blame is to be assigned not to Ford, but rather to the nut behind the wheel.
Obama, a big advocate of government intervention in auto markets, also ought to consider why the Granada was built so lightly; Ford was trying to meet CAFE fuel efficiency standards. Maybe he could take a hint and figure out that Congress ought to leave the engineering to the SAE.
Yes, I'm dreaming here, but I've got to have hope.
