Even though I think the Miata is probably one of the more true-in-name of
the term "sports car", my definition of a sports car usually includes the
factor that the car is not a convertible.
This is mainly from a structural standpoint... and becomes less of an issue
as cars get stiffer.
I don't do road racing, but aren't there some types that require a true
hardtop non-convertible to be legal? (hence the funky looking M coupe?)
And I agree with the 2 door, 2 seats, and less than 3000lbs... but I think a
RWD with an LSD would be good.
