A car may be a sporting automobile without being a sports car. Performance modifications of regular, production cars, such as sport compacts, sports sedans, muscle cars, hot hatches and the like, generally are not considered sports cars, yet share traits common to sports cars.
They are sometimes called “sports cars” for marketing purposes for increased advertising and promotional purposes. Performance cars of all configurations are grouped asSports and Grand tourer cars or, occasionally, as performance cars.
