Sports cars are all about enjoying the drive. These vehicles have little utility, are not typically fuel efficient, and often have limited occupant space. They tend to be more of a luxury item and can be more expensive than the typical passenger car. Sure, they will still get from point A to point B, but they inspire drivers to find the most interesting route in between. Granted, there are a variety of opinions about what constitutes a sports car, so in this case our scope is 2-door coupes, convertibles and hatchbacks. Yes, there are plenty of high-performance sedans, SUVs and even wagons’but for this exercise we aren’t calling them sports cars. Here’s a look at a selection of engaging sports cars available today, rising in price from the affordable to the unobtainable.

Quite a lot has been going on:

2019 Porsche Panamera GTS and GTS Sport Turismo first drive: Chips anyone?

Porsche would make excellent potato chips. To make a quality chip, you need the skill to slice thin and even, so you get full potato flavor in every single one. And few companies can slice a product lineup thinner while maintaining flavor than Porsche.

Case in point: the 2019 Porsche Panamera GTS and GTS Sport Turismo, which together increase the Panamera family to 18 unique models. The GTS lands above Panamera, Panamera 4 and 4S models, as well as the Hybrid, Executive and Sport Turismo variants. Yet it slots in below the Turbo and Turbo S, and all of those variants. A massive gap in the product lineup!

25 Cars That Will Be Worthless In 5 Years (According To Math)

In today’s car market, consumers are often making several key considerations. First is the type of car that they would buy. Nowadays, there a growing preference towards SUVs and pickup trucks. Aside from this, car buyers also like to go over the various safety features available in all models. Finally, they also tend to be interested in the car’s onboard technologies, particularly the ones that are used for communication, information, and entertainment.

Aside from these factors, there are also car buyers who consider their car’s price. Especially when your budget is tight, you have to narrow your car choices down to a certain price range to make it much easier for you to shop.

A Comfortable Place to Spend 38000 Hours Behind the Wheel

Pull up a chair and ponder a part of the automobile that drivers may take for granted but that the manufacturers do not: seats. Buyers are seduced by a car’s styling, performance and brand image. But you’re going nowhere fast without a good place to park your behind.

A good seat helps improve safety, makes us better drivers and can even increase a car’s fuel efficiency. And while the car’s exterior can get a shopper to open the door, an eye-catching and comfortable chair can close the sale.

While the budget for seating can be second only to the engine, the automakers do not manufacture the seats ‘ that’s the job of suppliers like Adient, Faurecia and Lear. They employ designers, chemists, ergonomic specialists, metallurgists, artisans, plus biomedical and software engineers to provide solutions for the automakers.

Tata Motors’ Tryst With Performance Cars

The launch of the Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP signifies a new era for Tata Motors. However, it isn’t the first time Tata Motors has developed an out and out performance machine. So let’s take a look at some of them from the recent past.

Back at the 2000 Geneva Auto Show, Tata Motors grabbed the attention of automotive journalists from across the world with the Aria Roadster. Based on the same platform as the Indica, the car had nothing to do with the Aria MPV that came after it. It was proposed to be powered by either a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre petrol engine and was styled by IDEA Institute in Italy. The Aria Roadster was meant to showcase the versatility of the Indica platform.
