Search is your friend it's all on the forum, several times over...

Basically the Base Package had wind up windows and black cloth seats.
The Touring Package added power windows, leather seats and door panels in a choice of several colors, carpet strips on the inside of the side sills, a liner on the soft top, and an "upgraded" radio.

The Sports Pack added lighter forged wheels, sticker tires (that lasted less than 10,000 miles), slightly stiffer shocks and springs.

The Hard Top was an option on any of the cars.

The LSD and Traction Control was added at the end of the '05 model year. Unless you are a serious autocrosser, you would possibly be better off without the LSD - a light weight mid-engine car behaves differently than typical cars the are helped by an LSD. You can have Traction Control (TC) without LSD, but not the other way around..

Track Pack was available on later models. It has even more track oriented shocks/springs, and a toe-line brace for the rear.
