Can front wheel drive cars drift

Can front-wheel-drive cars drift?

Answer :
A little bit of drift can be induced in a front-wheel-drive car by pulling on the handbrake and locking up the back wheels. this drift is called braking drift and this is not the same as a power drift where the back wheels break traction due to extra power through the drive train from the engine. 

Power drifts can only be done if there is power at rear wheels.  

But yes, using an FWD car, a braking drift can be done with handbrake which hardly lasts for a couple of seconds.
