When I think sports saloon, I usually think more along the lines of M5, or this beauty

But hey, they're basically the same, right? lol

Yeah my 97 Maxima was advertised as a Sports Sedan, so why not let members in who drive thier cars as sports cars in.
This could be a sports car or super car. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:..._in_London.jpg

Well personally, it doesn't bother me any, and there aren't really any rules, so anyone can join lol.

The 458 Italia is nice, besides the engine fires. Expected to see one in Detroit this year, or the FF, but Ferrari backed out [, I infer].

Are there any type of competitions for fuel economy teams? In that case I may be more inclined to prefer a set of guidelines for who can join.

A 3.2L 225hp engine is a "High Output Engine"? Also, the prowler used the 3.5L engine.

I wouldn't consider the Intrepid a sports car anymore than a Camry. It's a family sedan.

5.0 mustangs had an Ho motor rated @ 225 hp, the truck motor 5.0 was 170 hp.
What I consider here is veiw point rather than actual preformance.

Btw. My car has an Ho Hemi motor, 2.4 l with 105 hp.

Yep, only difference is a slightly larger bore. Identical otherwise. What differentiated the 3.2 and 3.5 HO from any other 3.5 is the intake plenum, the HO has 2 tuning valves for more power throughout the power curve. If you've never driven one, its useless to argue the "sportiness".

I'm already nearly tempted to leave the "Sports Cars" team unless someone can give me some help or competition in MPG or % over EPA combined. Those with engine displacements of 4+ liters would be especially welcome. BenjaminT needs to join the team with his 27+ MPG 4.6 liter Mustang GT.
