    why do I feel that these “budget sports cars” can bring much more value for the consumers, as compared to our locally available cars?

  • Adnan Bhatti

    I agree, but the thing here is, us Pakistanis consider an Altis grande a sports car, whereas it’s just another 4-door sedan. Sports cars mentioned above are at the very least 4th if not, 3rd car in the household. The primary being a premium sedan let’s say, an e-class, camry or markx for the gent in the family, 2nd an offroader / suv for the mum, third a small vitz / city for running errands like dropping the kids to school, etc. and then the fourth, the sports car for Mr. to take out on weekends. Sports cars require a lot more maintenance as compared to a normal car. A corolla or civic with 70k on the clock is a good car, whereas a sports car with that much mileage is not considered a good buy. So unfortunately, the corolla / civic win again.

    Normal cars are much better . Driving should be done in a way as to safeguard yourself plus the other people around you . It should not be all about speed and fun .you can do that on your console and TVs instead

  • Zulfiqar Ali Soomro

    well going by your statement the world should stop producing Ferraris lambos and gtrs, right

  • Zulfiqar Ali Soomro

    agreed totally.. civic and corolla ko thora modify kardo kits laga ke suddenly these ECONOMY SEDANS become sports cars… lol

  • Adnan Bhatti

    Kind of my initial point. The sports car or ‘Recreational vehicle’ as the ‘goras’ say, is the 3rd if not 4th car. The household that has one of these has the three aforementioned BEFORE the not-very-practical sports. In other words, Jiskey paas premier sedan hai, phir aik 4×4 ya SUV bhee hai, phir aik cheap sedan bhee hai, phir kia karey!? Buy a sports car 😀 😀

  • Salman Ahmed

    Civic Corolla main se koi car bhi sports car nahi ha aur na hi is article wali ha .sports cars Ferrari ,Porsche ki hoti ha .aap log kis mughlia daur main ji rahae ha?
