Top ten sports cars ever?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This could get interesting, as the estabished and long traditional definition of "sports car" seems to be falling out of favor and now anything that even performans slightly sporty is called a "sports car."

 

For me, I'm a traditionalist. A sports car is a light, 2 seat open car designed for motorsport and street use, while the same car with a fixed roof is a GT. Which means cars like the Miata/MX5 and S2000 are sports cars, while the 350Z and 911 are GTs. Exotics like the Aventador are also GTs, though the Pagani Zonda convertible is a sports car (the coupe is a GT). For me, the MX5 is the quintessential sports car: Open top, light, balanced, about precision and flow rather than brute force and outright speed. What sports cars have traditionally been about since the first Stutz Bearcat and MG TC.

The best sports car for me is the Ferrari 250 GTO, the second one is the Porsche Carrera GT then the Chevrolet Corvette 1968 L88
