Is a Toyota Celica considered a sports car for insurance purposes?

I currently own a 2003 Toyota Celica. Although it has only a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine, I'm still wondering if it's considered a sports car because of its styling and the fact that it's a two-door coupe.

“Although a Toyota Celica may not have the power numbers you’d find in a pure sports car, it was marketed and sold as a sports car for younger people.
While each car insurance company has its own designations for whether a vehicle is a sports car, a Celica certainly fits the criteria, as it’s stylish and a two-door coupe. For these reasons, you’ll probably end up paying more for car insurance on a Celica, even though it has far less horsepower than other models. “
