Sports cars have been around almost since the beginning of the automobile. Even when 12 horsepower was considered fast, people were building sports cars. The NW Rennzweier by Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriks-Gesellschaft A.G. (now Tatra) is perhaps the oldest production race car in the world, dating back to 1900.
Today, sports cars are as wildly different as they are potent. Each sports car is an attempt to distill a philosophy and character into a car as a pure expression of a brand. Ferrari's La Ferrari is the perfect example of this. Some sports cars are made for numbers, not fun, and they come across as dour. Other sports cars practically scream "Yippie!" The spectrum in between is huge, with muscle cars, lightweight racers, and GT cars all around.
Of course, sports cars are inextricably linked to the much maligned midlife crisis. Is fulfilling a childhood dream in adulthood such a bad thing?
