Ever since the first sports car – the Prince Henry Vauxhall 20hp - was sold in 1910, sports cars were distinct from others vehicle types by their speed and maneuverability. Due to their rarity, aesthetics and desirability, many older models are still being sold in auto auctions (nevertheless, those models are out of scope in this market analyses).
In recent years, sports cars received a lot of critique for the excessive fossil fuel consumption. Electric sports cars like the BMW i8, Tesla Model S and others have started an electric renaissance of the segment.

Example Models: Aston Martin DB9, Bugatti Veyron, Chevrolet Camaro, Ferrari FF, Jaguar XK, Maserati GranTurismo, Porsche Boxster, Volkswagen Eos.
