    A sports car might have a jump seat, Porsche has since 1948. But when it has a true rear seat, it ceases to be a true sports car.

    Look at the values of the 1960's 2+2 Ferrari's. Why do they stay so low, while the two seaters command top dollar? They weren't 'sports cars'. They were GT's. Grand Tourers.

    But like I said earlier, the definitions are starting to get blurred.

    (No one had the Phaeton answer huh?)

    your definition included the word "usually" when it refered to backseats and although i have no numbers my guess is an M3 is not much higher off the ground than a stang or camaro...the fact is as ive said a hundred times in two different threads it is hard to define, but hotrod you still must insist im wrong, even though you know there are examples of non-low 2+2 sports cars all over the place you even brought up a ferrari 2 posts later....i believe its a sports car you dont lets leave it at that...i can counter all your arguments and you can counter all mine and when devil shows up later he'll say im wrong too, but either way i still believe its a sports car

    So the Saint and the Devil both say your wrong? Now what are you going to do?

    We can agree to disgree.

    Automotive News doesn't even say sports car, it says sporty car. I would not have placed the Mustang on that list and left the M3 off.

    Soon, station wagon will have been redefined. SUV already is.

    It's certainly the golden age of the automobile.

    Yea, but Edmunds lists the Corvette and Porsche as a Coupe! And certainly you have to at least agree the the Mini isn't a coupe?!

    Besides, I've been to Australia and I wouldn't be looking for a reason to stay here if I could move there.

    It should be an El Camino!! Whats keeping Chevrolet from offering this now? Instead they bring us a 42,000 SSR. Why not this at 22,000?
