Mein Auto: M Roadster/M3
All cars have Trailing Throttle Oversteer. It is just a matter of how much, a little or a LOT.

The early Porsche 911 had a LOT, as did my Fiat 850 Spider. My E46 M3 has a bit, just enough to bring the tail out when I want.

The problem with rear engine cars is once the rear started moving out, all that mass out back made it very hard to catch and stop. Also more modern cars are tuned more towards understeer, so the TTO becomes almost neutral handling.
