Well, now days you can use openlitespeed with its mod_php, a better alternative to php-fpm and nginx or apache mod_php. :-) Also you can use swoole :-) To make it multithreaded and run as a server on its own. As well there are other implementations. As well you can write your own requests handler and run it, for example, like in laravel php artisan serve. There are many solutions, just need to investigate. But yeah something that is implemented to work out of the box for production, yes it doesn't exist. That's why we have web servers. :D

Well, the question was why php gets a bad rep. Think about what you just said. Roadrunner aside, you need to go to third party tools just to get things running.
Nobody ever said there's no way, I also listed some, you did and so on. But there's a lot of legacy out there, lots of inconsistencies in the language and despite all the new stuff that's nice and all, you also need to be in a position to use it.
