Is this a trick question.

I think it is dependent on who is behind the wheel.

I don't see the point to this question. Obviously the more powerful one is closer to being a sports car.

How about this - neither is a sport car or both are sports cars/sedans.

The definition of sports car is relatively loose these days. Used to be description only for a 2 door/2 seater (Corvette/Ferrari) or a 2+2 with minimal use back seat (Porsche)

Now everyone claims they have a sports car - BMW started the trend and now everyone has at least 1 entry into that segment. Gotto admit the M cars are definitely sports cars.

Drive a BMW and then drive a Porsche or Corvette and form your own opinion.

the 3 series is "sporty" but its far from being a sports car.

A real sports car is something you cant even drive every day to work.

what - like a go cart? A skip barber formula car?
You can drive a Lotus Elise to work.

As I said - definition is sort of fuzzy

This question is sort of silly

TVR builds sportscars, so does Lotus, Radical and maybe a Porker GT3 is a true Sportscar, a Carrera should be but isn't imho, an M3 almost, a CSL definitely, an M5 not, a Ferrari F430 definitely.

Definition of a sportscar...ehmmm
