Men: Women Don’t Really Care About The Kind of Car You Drive -ie, Are Not Won Over by Expensive Sports Cars
I wonder if this myth about women supposedly preferring expensive cars in a man got started by men, because usually, men are more interested in cars than women are, so men naturally assume if other men are impressed by a BMW or Porsche, women must be too.
- New Study Reveals Women Think a Guy’s Car Says Something About his Character, from Economic Status to Self-Image
NEW YORK, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Most men might think that hot women like hot cars, but according to the results of a new survey conducted on behalf of leading international dating website AnastasiaDate by Harris Poll, a majority of women associate fancy cars with negative character traits:
56 percent say that they view men who drive exotic / fast cars as being show-offs or arrogant; 17 percent perceive them as being insecure.
Furthermore, only one-fifth of women (21 percent) say that they have found a man more attractive after seeing the type of car that he drives.
The results of the survey – which was conducted online in March 2014 and polled over 2,100 American men and women on the connection between attraction, “date-ability” and choice of car – lead to the conclusion that women prefer a man who drives a sensible car, because it reflects his level of stability.
And a third (32 percent) of women believe that the type of car a guy drives determines what kind of family man he will be – a guy who drives a sedan, for example, may be preferred over one who sports a Ferrari.

Forget the Porsche — guys who really want to attract women should be driving a Prius.
Sexy models draped over sports cars at the New York Auto Show aside, most women prefer a man who drives something more practical, according to a new survey.
A Harris poll commissioned by dating site AnastasiaDate found that a majority of women associate fancy cars with negative character traits: 56 percent view men who drive exotic or fast cars as being show-offs or arrogant, and 17 percent perceive them as being insecure.
Almost half of women say that a guy’s car reflects his economic status. Forty-six percent say that it reflects a guy’s image of himself. Eleven percent believe that the car reflects the guy’s feelings about having a family.
Only about one-fifth of women say that they have found a man more attractive after seeing the type of car that he drives.
And 37 percent of women think men who buy expensive cars are compensating for a lack of “something.”
Men have their own opinions about what a woman’s ride says about her.
Nearly 40 percent of men think a woman in a fast or exotic car is a show off. Six percent see those women as emotional.
