These are supercars - fast, powerful, and sexy.
Generally speaking, sports cars are performance-oriented cars targeted at auto enthusiasts. They're typically 2-door coupes or convertibles with powerful engines, sport-tuned suspensions and sleeker body styles.
"Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet" is what it is all about. The Chevrolet Corvette is often known as "America's Sports Car" due to the fact that it is the first all-American sports car built by the American manufacturing company General Motors. The Corvette has maintained its reputation as a very powerful yet affordable car for more than 50 years now.
In the beginning every car was a sports car, because they weren't practical or particularly useful on a day-to-day basis. It was quite an adventure to drive them and most drivers thought of it as being very sporty. Over time cars became reliable transportation, and then they went full circle back to some models being sports cars again. Seems like some things never change.
The essence of sports cars is not really within a particular body style or drivetrain configuration, but more in what they do for the driver. The flowing curves of the body design, the massive power output of the high revving engines, and the distinctive throaty musical note of the exhaust pipes is what makes them so fascinating.
Most sports cars are rear-wheel drive, have two seats, two doors, and are designed for precise handling, acceleration, and aesthetics. A sports car's dominant considerations can be superior road handling, braking, maneuverability, low weight, and high power, rather than passenger space, comfort, and fuel economy.
The sports car bug can bite you at almost any age, it is the thrill of driving, the escape from the restrictions of a job, and the desire to get out an explore new horizons. Youre not alone in wanting a sports car, it can help you scratch that itch.
