Exactly. Going ungodly fast is not a requirement for a true sports car. I could argue that it's even a detriment: I doubt my old Austin-Healey Sprite could hit 100 mph even on a downhill, and many classic sports cars weren't all that much faster. It's the difference between autocrossing and drag racing...
