What exactly is a “supercar”??

Because this is reliably Yahoo News, I shall use Wikipedia’s definition:

A supercar (also known as exotic car) is a very expensive and high-performance sports car or grand tourer.[1][2] Supercars are marketed by automakers as unusual and include limited production specials from an “elite” automaker, standard-looking cars modified for power and performance, as well as models that appeal to enthusiasts from smaller manufacturers.

Now, the seven “supercars” yahoo states are reasonable with insurance costs:

1. Charger R/T

2. C7 Stingray

3. Taurus SHO

4. Mustang GT

5. Camaro ZL1

6. KIA K900

7. Challenger Hellcat

Of all the cars to choose from, I think only three, arguably four, could be considered “supercars”, and the fourth one(Mustang) is a long shot in the dark, even though I’m only going off of performance.


Perhaps a better choice of title would have been: “7 cars that offer ‘supercar performance’ for peasants who can’t afford real supercars because insurance reasons”. It just doesn’t roll off the tongue as nice though...
