I have owned my Cat since Moby Dick was a minnow, and have heard/read NOTHING that indicates a regular model and/or a sport model......On this forum, some of the members refer to their Cat as a Sport Model......What gives? Are they trying to say their Cat is a sporty modelled car or what? If there is a difference, how do you tell? Different engine, special grille, stamped logo, chrome plated/high speed dip stick???????

well obviously you haven't looked very hard.

he's a quick overview from msn auto:

"The optional Sport Package receives new 17-inch aluminum wheels with H-rated Goodyear tires, high-intensity discharge xenon headlights, brushed-aluminum interior trim, and sport suspension, to mention a few."

This is a good explanation. Does Rear Spoiler go only for "" SPORT"" ? My parents have a Catera 1997 and this car has a Rear Spoiler but doesn.t have the sign "" SPORT"",so this is a regular model ...

Wing or no wing, if the interior is trimmed with silver instead of faux wood then it's a Sport. Wheels and wings could have been added later, and the suspension is impossible to ID by itself, but the silver grille and interior came only on the Sport and it's unlikely that anyone would change them especially around the instruments.
