We’ve all heard of sports cars; they’re fast and exciting, often involving a slight sacrifice to practicality. What, then, separates them from the pinnacle of motoring: the “supercar”?
The line is a blurry one. The Porsche 911 and Ferrari California Ts are sports cars, but their brethren, the 911 Turbo and 488 GTB, are supercars. Sports cars generally offer a modicum of practicality, liveable MPG and an attainable price tag.
Supercars, like the Lamborghini Huracan or McLaren 720s, separate theselves with exotic looks, price tags closer to houses, and devil-may-care abandonment of practicality in favor of extreme performance.
