Would you ever consider a widebody Mazda Miata with a turbo Ls1 prepped for the track a super car? It could certainly devastate most supercars in almost every performance specification but at the end of the day...it's still a Miata ya know.

"High End Sports Car" seems to fit the bill for a FI M.
I'd love to have that Miata...
