Marco911 in his C4S could thus lap Manhattan more quickly than Afroduck in his Z4, undoubtedly scoring a sub-twenty minute time.

Timpo in a Nissan GTR - a venerable sports car - could score a sub-fifteen minute time.
I don't see how this argument has any bearing on the news or video.

I'd classify a RWD 2-seat roadster as a sports car

I respected that he stopped for all the red lights, especially since some them came quick and he braked hard.

Doesn't seem like he's driving excessively fast and he doesn't blow thru red lights.

That record can easily be broken. I had my C4S with BC plates in NYC also, and the Porsche swallowing potholes are what slow you down!

Sporty car. The chassis on the Z4 is like jello.

It is... It's all relative though.
There's always going to be some guy in here with the mentality that anything less than an expensive exotic/supercar is not considered a "sports car"

Semantics. It's not a purpose built sports car with a racing heritage like the 911, Corvette or the Viper. A Z4 is a sporty car, like a Corolla GTS or a Cadillac CTS-V.

If that's a sports car, what do you define as a sporty car? Chevy Malibu with chrome wheels?

Z4 is a sports car in my opinion and a nod to the old british and italian sports cars from the 50's to the 80's.

A VW Golf GTI is a sporty car.

NEW YORK — New York City police have arrested the driver who they say posted an Internet video of himself speeding around Manhattan in just over 24 minutes.

Police have charged 30-year-old Canadian Christopher Adam Tang with reckless driving, reckless endangerment and other charges. Police also seized his 2006 BMW Z4.

The video was posted on Aug. 28. A camera mounted on the dashboard shows the car travelling along the 42.5-kilometre loop, while stopping for six red lights.

Electronic dance music provides the soundtrack as a stopwatch superimposed on the screen keeps time: 24 minutes and 7 seconds.

The New York Post newspaper identified Tang as a University of British Columbia graduate who majored in economics. In a Sept. 6 news story, the newspaper said Tang worked as a legal assistant and moved to New York City two years ago. Tang’s wife works at the Whitney Museum.

They said Tang’s blue 2006 BMW Z4 roadster with Canadian plates was seized on Sept. 5, two days after NY Police Commissioner Ray Kelly had promised to nab the anonymous driver.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

That was an era where sports cars were mainly all open top convertibles. Times have changed. A Z3, though it meets your definition of a "sports car", drives like a 3 Series that's been in a bad accident.
