I think I remember a few cars that  were available with 4WS (Porsche 
959, Honda Prelude, Nissan's Super HICAS cars...).  It may (or may 
not) be a boon to handling, but it's obviously unnecessary for basic 
maneuvering, expensive, and probably too complicated for the general 
public to appreciate.  However, I'd be surprised if there aren't still 
some cars available with 4WS, if not in the US.
