Let's face it, R32 and S4 are heavy cars, they'll never perform as well as ligher cars such as Minis, Miatas and S2000s. But I think for the odd track day and driving school, stock R32 and S4 should still be better than 95% of the cars out there.
For the remainder of the driving, which is mostly on the street, these cars should and will do just fine if not great, while still able to be comfortable to drive on long trips.
