1. Light and Chuckable
Unlike trucks, sports cars are built to run. They’ll never haul sheets of plywood or a tow camper, but in a straight line or on twisty tarmac they can’t be beat. They’re just so much fun to drive. Part of the reason they have such impressive performance is that they’re light. Heavy-duty work requires a lot of iron, which is why even half-ton trucks are so damn bulky. Mass is the enemy of performance and sports cars are light and purposeful, plus they stick to the road like hot asphalt bits to a rocker panel.
