Best Answer

The horsepower of true sports car varies greatly. It can be less than 100 HP. to more than 500 HP. Horsepower is not what makes a car a sports car. A true sports car is a small performance and nimble handling car that may be spartan or luxurious but high maneuverability and minimum weight are requisite. The term Sports Car is used to describe cars that are not really sports cars by the true definition.
