Many motorists wish to save enough to buy sports car at least once in a lifetime, even though they might not be able to afford the maintenance of the car for a long time later.
This is because owning a sports car can be an expensive dream and the insurance can be sky high.
Since the sports cars are prone to accidents and being stolen, insurance is a must in spite of it being so expensive.

Though the sports car's limits are well past the average car's, its driver is more likely to test those limits than the average driver does those of the average car.
Sports car drivers, who are most likely to test the vehicle's limits — and the laws of physics — are prime candidates for this feature.
Sports cars are probably the worst choice for transporting children, though sporty versions of luxury coupes and sedans tend to be more flexible.

  Sports car - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Performance modifications of regular cars, such as sport compacts, sports sedans, muscle cars, hot hatches and the like do not generally fall in the pure sports car territory, but share common sports car traits.
Most early British sports cars lacked a powerful engine and did not accelerate as quickly as contemporary American muscle cars, but were known for having exceptional handling characteristics due to their combination of light weight, carefully engineered/balanced chassis, and innovative suspension designs.
This layout is preffered by high performance sports car and supercar manufactuers, such as Ferrari and Lamborghini.

 Sports car racing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cars competing in the P1 category must weigh no less than 900kg and are limited to 6000cc naturally aspirated and 4000cc turbocharged engines.
Amateur sports car racing throughout the United States is sanctioned by clubs such as the Sports Car Club of America.
Proponents of the series claim that the Super GT cars are the fastest sports cars in the world, while critics deride the cars as being outside the limits of 'acceptable' modifications.

Great emphasis is often placed on handling—the ability of the car to remain in the control of the driver under challenging condition such as when the car's tires begin to lose their grip on corners.
A large, powerful engine is not required; many of the early British sports cars lacked a powerful engine and did not accelerate as quickly as, say, muscle cars, but were known for having exceptional handling characteristics due to their combination of light weight, carefully engineered/balanced chassis and innovative suspension designs.
Often vehicles in the muscle car, performance sedan/saloon or grand tourer (GT) category are referred to as sports cars even though they tend to lack the light weight and excellent handling characteristics of a true sports car.

If you drive a sports car it is more than likely that the cost of your insurance policy will be higher than if you drove a more standard specification vehicle.

 Edgy 2-seater's a true sports car - The Boston Globe
I've always thought that to be a true sports car, a two-seater needed a certain edginess: the threat of a snap to its rear at launch, nimbleness afoot, sensitive steering.
An interior touch that reflects the muscular bulge of the car's exterior is a half-egg bump at center dash.
While the car is virtually free of turbulence with the top down and side windows raised, there was a slight rumble of wind from both rear quarters with the top up.

 Building a Sevenesque Sports Car   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A sevenesque sports car may be defined as any lightweight and nimble roadster that resembles a Lotus Seven either visually or in spirit.
To distinguish Ron's design from other sevenesque cars, Ron adopted the name "Locost" (pronounced 'low-cost') to reflect the similarity with the Lotus design while reminding us that building a sports car from the ground up can be accomplished on a minimal budget.
Each car develops it's own characteristics as the builder is challenged with a unique combination of budget constraints, parts availability, mechanical knowledge, and even government regulation.

 Sports Car GT for PC Review - PC Sports Car GT Review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Admittedly, Sports Car GT doesn't dish up the most jaw-dropping graphics you've ever seen (though they are good), and its modeling of car and engine damage will leave a lot of sports-car fans wishing that real life were as forgiving.
Fans of high-dollar sports cars will find that the menu in Sports Car GT is enough to set their mouths watering, with cars from BMW, McLaren, Porsche, Panoz, Vector, Mosler, Callaway, Lister, and Ford (the Saloon Mustang).
The biggest disappointment is that unless Sports Car GT develops a dedicated fan base, the only official way to find opponents is by posting your name on EA's lame and relatively ineffective Multiplayer Matchup (I put my name up a year ago for Madden '99 and NHL Hockey '99 and have received only one response).

The boxier car also will be less aerodynamic, slowing it slightly in turns and hopefully making it easier for drivers to pass each other.
If two cars are nearly equal and the lead car is in calm air and the other is in turbulent air, the trailing car won't handle as well and won't be able to pass.
Boxier cars wouldn't handle quite as well, but their handling wouldn't change as dramatically when caught in turbulent air.

Cars are an integral part of American culture, and domestic sports cars are even closer to our hearts.
Compiling a list of favorite sports cars was no easy task, so some ground rules had to be set.
To make the list, a sports car must have had final assembly in North America, could not be single model-year special editions, must have a street-legal version (whether or not a racing version was made), and, of course, had to be a hit with critics and enthusiasts.
