because the speed of sound isn't enough

The real question is, why shouldn't a 1000 mph car exist? Thrust is equivalent to 180 F1 cars. Epic success, assuming it stays on the ground.

If it's jet-powered, does it really count as a car?

Isn't it more like a jet that just stays on the ground and has wheels that roll passively against that ground?

I think in order to qualify as a "car", the object has to have wheels that actually drive the motion of the vehicle. If it's jet-powered, then it's a jet. If it doesn't fly, we'll just call it the "Ostrich Jet".
