And while were at it lets bring back two stroke motorbikes and proper road racing. In other words, too bad....

Build the cars in a way that they are less safe and less good at driving and people will be cautious, but will still get in accidents because the car doesn't handle well (and those crashes will be worse because of worse safety gear.)

Do some supercars inspire more confidence like that than others? It sure does seem like a lot of supercars crash when you think about how many of them actually exist. And they tend to not hold up very well in a crash either.

Its like anything, remember when you first learned to ride a two wheel bicycle, remember how much better you were at riding said bicycle ten years later?
Granted thats a different level of speed and risk than a lowly bicycle but the analogy holds. The thing thats worrisome is the ease and confidence that is instilled. Thats actually a massive problem with the GTR is it makes people think they are better at driving than they are and they put themselves and other into risky situations because the car makes them feel good.
In essence 650S is equal to cocaine, especially because you need more to feel better and better and better

How do regular drivers handle driving a supercar like the 650S?
The McLaren 650S is a really fast car, and in truth, it is far beyond the skillset of anyone who doesn't wear Nomex and a helmet while driving. Even if you don't go to to driving school to become an expert, chief test driver Chris Goodwin says that the 650S can make you feel like one.
WIRED.com has an article that talks about how their editor slowly gets to know the 650S and is able to take turns at faster and faster speeds. I think that the article is worth a read.
