The Mustang is a muscle car, not a sports car. and the Volkswagen GTI is definitely NOT a sports car. But hey, maybe MSN Autos considers the Yugo a supercar. Come on MSN, get it together..

Well, one sports car and six performance cars. All of them fun cars but most don't know what the term sports car means.

Since when did anything made with a Japanese or Korean name become a "sports car"(aside from the old "Z" cars from Datsun)? The term is now used mostly as a sales pitch rather than in the classic meaning. This is typical for Asian companies that boast of nothing truly performance related in their advertising; only glam,  glitter and bs. Someone needs to point out to young guys that a Honda Civic with a loud muffler and spoiler is not what most sport car enthusiasts think of when talking about performance.

Last November I purchased my dream car.  I sadly had to sell one just like it 15 years ago as we bought our first home and my son outgrew the back seat.  It is  an early model 1985 Porsche 944.  Naturally asperated and while not fast (0-60 in 8.3 sec. top speed 137 from 143 HP), it is a spectacular looker with timeless styling, easy care (although a bit on the expensive side).  Red with black interior and custom mid-60's style 911 rims it turns heads where ever it goes.  It also delivers 30+ mpg out on the road on regular fuel. 

 

I noticed that the Scion/Subaru spots cars look amazing similar to the Porsche 944 which is a tribute to the predecessor of all good things that have come since.  My Porsche is a great daily driver/ survivor example of a real sports car and I might add that it cost me $4,750 (purchase price) + $2,100 for a complete service (timing belt, water pump, radiator, gaskets. belts and hoses).  Just replaced the ignition roter today for $16 and it took all of 5 minutes.  Full coverage insurance with ZERO deductib;le is $238 every 6 months.

 

Porsche quality and it drives like new for a fraction of the cost of any of the cars listed here.
