There are two main elements that arouse the emotional bond between the sports car and its owner. The first, not surprisingly, is the whole driving experience. In almost the same breath is style – the raw good looks that set the pulse racing as much as the driver would love to, given a clear track and the opportunity to use it. Some might argue that it is style first and the driving experience second. That debate will rage until the teleport takes over. What is not in doubt is the passion stirred by the drive and the style experience.
To the sports car enthusiasts there is the bonding experience – at clubs, town meets and road trips. There is undeniably something special in sports cars that creates a unique attraction and attachment, making them making them among the most desired vehicles on the market. Some say that sports cars are “toys for boys”. Few would argue with that. Even fewer bother to express it in the first place. Studies do show that sports cars are a popular passion with many men and they often occupy the time, as well as the hearts, of many.
Here are some reasons why sports cars are quite so popular:
- Sports cars are popular because they are symbolic, asserting both independence and freedom. Drivers are hindered no more by the perceived limitations and inadequacy of mainstream vehicles and are able to enjoy a spirited driving experience tackling the roads with ease. This perception of freedom makes sports car popular.
- Sports cars are popular because of their leading-edge technology. People are attracted to technological progress; sports cars at their best are a pleasing blend of technical and mechanical expertise. Sports cars are considered by their devotees to be a blend of technological advancement; from engines with attitude to aerodynamic tailoring, sport cars symbolise the forefront of industrial design.
- Sports cars are popular because they satisfy the desire for control. Sports cars are sold, as research shows, on the promise of being highly responsive. The driver perceives themselves to be in complete control. If you are going to drive one you need to be. With great power comes great responsibility.
- Sports cars are popular because they appeal to the driver’s passion for power and speed on the road, although with roads in many countries becoming ever more crowded it is power levels that are seen as the main benefit to enable drivers to remove themselves in timely manner from harm’s way.
While some look for performance, others have a passion for style. There are those who want both. It is to these two key desires that the manufacturers address their expertise and peak of innovative design. Your own personal reason for possessing a sports car does not really matter in the final analysis. If there is something you want and you can comfortably afford it, why not go for it?
