Well, since it has a hard top, it certainly isn't a "true"
sportscar, but I think MG frequently had a "two-prong" product
line.  Expensive, sometimes custom-bodied coupes and saloons
for the gentry, and inexpensive sportscars for the enthusiast
or "boy racer".  After WWII, they seemed to concentrate more
and more on the bottom end of the market.  It's pretty hard 
for a small company to do that today.  These high-end cars
are very profitable and raise the prestige of the brand as a
whole (especially in the eyes of those who are not ardent fans
of the marque like we are), so if producing such cars helps MG
survive and (hopefully) prosper, go for it!
