I had to see what's the difference between GT (I'm thinking grand touring?) and sports car.
I found this answer:
Very good question. Just watched the Top Gear episode where they took GTs in Romania and James picked a Lamborghini Gallardo. They kept referring to it as a supercar. For me personally I have 4 categories:
Sportscar = 911, most anything that 2 door/2 seat RWD
Exotic sportscar = above but more rare, 430, Gallardo, 308
GT/Coupe = 2 door, 4 seat (or soft 2 seater) RWD... California, 456, M3?
Supercar = performance machine, very low production numbers: Enzo/F50, LP670 SV, Zonda

What came to mind when I saw GT was grand touring; so, I googled GT car.
It says it's a luxury car for long distances. Bad definition. When I was young, we went from New Orleans to San Francisco in a Buick Electra 225.
(Feel free to comment beyond the obvious 2 door vs 4 door for parents and kids.)
Here's the picture wikipedia is showing for a GT. (Okay, I was born in 1962. So, when I was five or six, I think a car that looks like this stuck with me. Then there was Speed Racer's car the Mach 5.
Isn't this Ferrari 250 GTO a pretty car? Good performance?
P.S.: I was talking about 1967-1968 and looking at the description of the photo in HTML, it says it's a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.
