I guess everyone has an opinion of what a sports car is. There are levels such as between sportscar and supercar IMO. Sportscars I feel deliver a certain type of look of speed, either have a large engine or P:W ratio, have great handling, and deliver an experience. Supercars are purely sportscars that are exotic. Other cars are designed for other purposes whether its a grocery getter, to haul equipment, etc.Originally posted by applejax
AUGH! Muscle and a design do not a sports car make. The Mustang is as much a sportscar as Steve is a conservative poster. [/b]
Hmmm... Let's see, This is a Sports Car correct.Originally posted by solarbear
I wouldn't classify the Mazda6 as a sports car, at the moment, but it is definitely a sporty car. It looks and feels like a sports car in many respects, except perhaps horsepower.
It would really need to have more horsepower, like a turbocharged V4 or even a more powerful V6 to be a sports car.[/b]
How about an M3 sedan? Is that less sporty than the coupe?Originally posted by Blackbird
I can't see the 6 as a sports car really. It wouldn't stand a chanse to a S2000, M-coupe, Corvette or other "real" sports cars.[/b]
