Is an Acura Integra considered a sports car for insurance purposes?

I just purchased a used 2006 Acura Integra, but I wasn't sure of the insurance costs. Do insurance companies consider it a sports car?

“The Acura Integra was produced from 1986 to 2006 and marketed as a sporty vehicle to younger drivers. But despite its sporty looks, it’s not exactly a race car, touting about 150 horsepower for the base trim.
That said, the body of the vehicle isn’t what makes it a sports car. It’s all about engine power, and because the Integra doesn’t tout huge power numbers, you probably won’t have to pay sports car rates.
