Scrappy, it sounds like you're hung up on the sound of the engine more than anything. I guess in your opinion a pure, true "sports car" must be 100% internal combustion with a loud, naturally aspirated engine and all mechanical components (no drive by wire, anti-lock brakes, yaw control, etc). Would a carburetor add to the "pure" experience? Fuel injection involves all that complicated electronic wizardry...

The bottom line is that everyone has different needs and preferences. When I think of a "pure" sports car, I'm thinking more about the steering feel and the way the tires, suspension and chassis responds to driver inputs. If there happens to be an electric motor providing propulsion, so be it. I think a high performance electric motor sounds pretty awesome in it's own way. Different isn't always a bad thing.
