Which One Is Better: GT or Sports Car?

GT vs Sports Car: High-performance cars are all unique.

We’ve come a long, long, LONG way since the introduction of the Ford T-Model. What was once a single-dominated car industry has now grown into a crowded marketplace.

There are all kinds of different cars out there. SUVs, pickup trucks, foreign cars, hybrids, big rigs and even all-electric vehicles (we’re looking at you, Tesla); there is no shortage of diverse makes and models that can meet the needs of every person on this planet. Of all the choices one can make, sports cars and GT cars are the most sought after. While they are similar in some areas, they differ in others. If you’re in the market for either a GT or sports car, it’s important to note the differences between them.

For those of you wanting to buy a sports car.

We get the appeal. Sports cars are sleek, fast and flat-out sexy. There’s a reason Hollywood likes putting sports cars in their movies; they just look good. Popular choices among sports-car enthusiasts include the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Porsche 911, Audi R8, Mazda MX-5, Jaguar F-Type, Nissan 370Z, and Nissan GT-R. While these aren’t the only choices, they’re the most desired by far.

A GT car is a great choice, too.

The GT car is the sports car’s sister. They’re similar in so many ways, yet different. More popular among Europeans, GT, which is short for the Italian word, “Gran Turismo”, is a model of car that is known for long-distance driving in luxury. You’re going to be shelling out some serious dough for these kinds of cars. Popular choices among customers include the Bentley Continental GT, Lexus LC500, Aston Martin Vanquish S, Mercedes-AMG GT C, Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, Aston Martin DB11 V8, Maserati GranTurismo MC, Audi RS5, and Mercedes-AMG S63. If you’ve got the money, have at it!


Consider all of the differences between a GT and sports car.

Some would say that GT cars are a subset of sports cars, and they wouldn’t be wrong. But, there are noticeable differences between sports cars and GTs. To start, sports cars are small, not too keen on a luxurious style, have nimble handling, are lightweight, and, while still powerful, their designers aren’t too terribly concerned with insanely high speeds. On the flip side, GT cars are all about luxury all the way down to comfort. Look at the car company’s themselves and it doesn’t take a brainiac to realize they’re all about grandeur. While sports cars are fast, GT models are faster. Engine size and speed are taken seriously, as you can imagine. These cars were built for the Autobahn and don’t mess around when it comes to performance.

Sports Car

So, what’s your next move? Are you about luxury, performance, or both? Would you like something a little less fast or do you want to burn the rubber off your tires? There are many things to consider when deciding between a sports car and GT car. One thing is for sure; test driving either one is sure to be a ton of fun!
