I cant remember where I read that the Evora is considered a Supercar.
What exactly is a Supercar and what constitutes being able to classify any car as a Supercar.
Is the Evora classified as a Supercar, yes or no. :confused:
Thoughts and input.....................

Precisely. Exotic yes, but definitely not a supercar. Same for the Elige.

I agree. Not enough of a HP monster to be Super.

Supercar? No.
Exotic? Yes.

Supercars should go 200+ MPH and be extremely rare IMO.
Wouldn't you consider a 458 a super car? Its not rare at all. I would say the extremely rare would apply to the hypercar classification like a Pagani, Bugatti, etc...

Didn't want to be that^ guy. Sometimes we repeat conversations, it happens in real life too. We're just preparing for old age.

Definitely not a Supercar.

Supercar implies that it is both exotic and in the very top percentage of cars when it comes to speed (top speed, 0-60, 0-100 ect). The Evora, even in S form, can be beat by quite a significant amount of cars when it comes to "speed" even a lot of stock form German sedans.

Hypercar is technically $500k+ and fits the categories above.

Now EXOTIC. would just imply that its low production and rare to see which I would argue it is.

It is a Super Car, but not a Supercar in my mind.

I don't believe there has ever been any set criteria for the Supercar, Hypercar, and now the Megacar monikers. I do think everyone is basically right so far though. Super car yes, but not a supercar.

I love theses threads where people are so concerned about their cars being classified as "exotic" or a "supercar"

Does any of this stuff matter? No.

Thanks Chhirowolf. We have been round this a few times.

The Esprit will be our supercar. I still believe we'll see another iteration of it.

The 450 HP V8 Turbo Esprits were.

What else is there to talk about when we spend our days thinking about our cars? I was on a date the other night and the girl pointed out, 3 hrs in, that I spent most of the time lustfully gazing out the window at my car. Its not as fast as a 458 or MP4 in a straight line, but it does fill a void in my life as equal as either of those two would. I love that fking car.
