Typically big horsepower and street tires don't behave well. Plain and simple.
I understand your point when considering the Z06, Viper, GT3s, though I'd point out that the Lotus Elise(189hp), Porsche Cayman (320hp)/Boxster(310hp), and Porsche 997 911(325hp) are not especially high horsepower cars.
Agreed. Do you think you could populate a class with just those or similar cars though? Because the numbers up to this point say no.
Good point. Honestly, I can not say is an 'STSuper' class would be popular. Locally, I mostly see Vettes and Loti filling up the SS ranks. Judging for the forum traffic, the Z06 drivers seem to be the most vocal about the need for R comps else SS dies. But then, did not the SEB just create a class that none one will participate in -- Super Street? If former SS cars will not run in an STSuper class where at least they can tweak suspension to make up for the loss or R comps, then surely no former SS cars will run in Super Street either. So based on that perspective, I see no reason why an STSuper would be any less interesting than 2014's Super Street class.
