I agree 100%. I think by 'insanely fun' you mean "good handling
characteristics" separating the drag racers from the sports cars. I think a
couple of muscle cars would even fit that description (Javelin, maybe?). Rear
wheel drive is important for the definition, but engine location isn't. A CRX,
although Sporty, is not a sports car. The only problem with that definition is
that Porsche's (with that little back seat) wouldn't be considered sports cars.
(They used to claim that sports cars are all they make, but now that they're
making an SUV, I guess they can't make that claim anymore!) Throw in the word
"convertible" and you've started defining the word Roadster. JK.
