A good example of that is a Chevrolet Corvette, which are fuckin' sexy as hell and faster than any other 'sports' car in its 40-70k range. It weighs anywhere between 3100 pounds to 3400 if you're looking at the C6's, and has a drag coefficient of about .35. The brand fuckin' new vettes --Blue Devil/Z07/ZR-1-- weighs about 3350lbs, has an LS9 supercharged 6.2L V-8. About 620HP stock, and tops out at around 220mph. It sells a little over 100k.
A bad example of that would be a Ford Mustang. A Mustang is a MUSCLE car, because it weighs about 2 tons, (nearly 4000lbs) and has a drag coefficient around .40. A Mustang is NOT made for speed. The Fifth-Generation Stangs are just about the only attractive Stangs ever manufactured. You'll get anywhere from 300HP to 400HP depending on if and what kind of upgrades/mods you get in it.
Also, in my opinion, I think Ford and Mustang is just straight shit because Ford doesn't care about quality these days; Mustangs generally have a shitty V6 engine, and it's Ford so its Only Fast Rolling Downhill. You'll eventually pay 2-fold for all the repairs, which, with the monies you spent on your Stang, will come out to roughly 40-50k, so you might as well just buy something else besides a Ford, like a Chevy.
I hope this clears up all the bs where people compare a Vette and a Stang.. they're from two completely different categories.. srsly. I don't think Ford even makes Sports Cars.
educated bamf: stfu n00b, vette=sports car stang=muscle car kayy?
retard: ohsnap im a t@rd
The only way to truly rate sportscars is to take brand new TOTALLY UNMODIFIED PRODUCTION cars and pit them against each other at the dragstrip, racetrack, and rally circuit. Don't compare them by horsepower or engine size -- totally irrelevant! They should be categorized by Manufacturer Guaranteed Dealership PRICE, such as:
