I'm not a fan, and obviously for any given car, RWD has more performance potential.
That said, I voted yes. if we start looking at some of the POS RWD cars out there that are billed as sports cars, I'd rather have a nice Mini any day.
IMO, sports car just means a car that is designed more for driving enjoyment than baby seats or whatever, so there are a lot of cars I don't necessarily love that fit the bill.
