"I believe that a sports car is a car that has only two doors, a very fast engine, premium leather and Bose or better sound system, and a car that raises your insurance bill."

Well, not exactly. A sports car, for insurance purposes, has to meet certain requirements that are often industry standards, but may vary between insurance carriers. Make, model, engine, horsepower, usage statistics, etc. are all factors that determine what constitutes a sports car.

Most often, sports cars are two door vehicles with powerful engines. Cars like Mistubishi Lancer Evo, on the other hand, is a four door and is still considered a sports car by most insurance companies.

Also, sound system has nothing to do with a car being a "sports car."
