Why don't cars have slipper clutches

like motorcycles? As you approach a a braking corner on a bike, you can bang down 2 or 3 gears without having to rev match and then just let out the clutch, even at high speed and not worry about locking up the rear or over-reving the engine.

So why don't performance cars have this?
