What about the Subaru WRX STI and its competitors? Are they supercars?

Although cars like the M3 and GT3 have some attiributes of a "Supercar" IMO a car that is based in a massed produced model is not a supercar, but there seems to be a variety of definitions to the term "Supercar".

For instance IMO Porsce Supercars have been the 959 and the Carrera GT rather than any commercially availble varients of the 911 regardless of how potent they were.

IN many resoects car like M3s and GT3s may be "better" than supercars but they lack the supercar "Panache" and exclusivity.
