Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

Yes there is a reason. The Mustang is not a sports car. It's a ponycar.

A sports car has two seats, no more, no less. Now you might try to claim the back seats in a Stang are vestigal, but they are there nonetheless.

Of course who cars about the proper use of language, just because some clown improperly uses a word, well it should be what he thinks it is, not what it really is

Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

I will argue 280Z's came in 2+2 as did quite a few cars. If they added a back set it was no longer a sports car???? MUHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA. The term sports car was derived from the name of cars that were in the amature sports classes of cars. But in reality some people just have different interpretation of what a sports car is. Under you interpretation a 2000 Cobra R is a sports car NO!!!!

Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

www.dictionary.com

sports car
n.
An automobile equipped for racing, especially an aerodynamically shaped one-passenger or two-passenger vehicle having a low center of gravity and steering and suspension designed for precise control at high speeds.

Marketing ploys and inaccurate usage notwithstanding, a sports car, by definition, is a two seater at most.

Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

As far as I'm concerned, a sports car is a coupe with performance and handling capabilities. The whole two seater, 2+2 thing doesn't matter. Nowadays certain sedans are considered sports cars(Impala SS, BMW M5,etc.). That definition needds to be revised and corrected. This is 2005 and the world of sports cars has changed drastically since that definition was probably made

Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

anything that has power nowadays is a sportscar.

whoda thunk 4 door sedans would be considered sportscars? yeah, theyre called the evo/sti/srt4.

in my mind, a sportscar should be a 2dr with a minimal of 350hp and a top speed of around 200. not limited to 2 seaters but the lighter the better.

nah sport compacts are like caviliers, civics, integras, and such. something small and slow that has a 4banger and is severly ugly.

How they came to their conclusions:
Quote:
The most popular sports cars on MSN Autos, based on visits to the site's vehicle pages during the second quarter of 2005.
So it's not really a judging, just an MSN popularity contest.

My definition of sports car is: Front engine, rear-wheel drive, manual transmission, two seat, convertable.

Re: Top sports car in America !!!!

by one or two passenger cars it very well could mean... the car being used has either one or two passengers in it... not having the ability to ONLY have one or two people in it EVER. It could just be while having one or two people in it... hmmm
