What’s that? Corvette reviews on your desktop? Performing hand stretches to prepare for the manual transmission? Stocking up on hairspray for the windblown post-convertible doo? You’re getting a sports car aren’t you? And wait, lemme guess. Hold on…I’m reading your mind right now. Your car is going to be in black!
Okay, fine. I am not a mind reader. But I am only revealing this secret to you, CarWoo! blog reader. I did a little research into the CarWoo! marketplace recently, and it turns out that 26% of people who request sports cars in the CarWoo! marketplace request the color black. Followed by blue and gray (blue sports car? really?). Wheres the iconic red? Not until sixth place, it turns out. After white.
So when you’re in the market for a new sports car, and you’re looking to stand out (or blend in) with the crowd keep this list of the most and least requested sports car colors in mind:
**I collected data on the Lamborghini, Audi R8, Audi S-series coupes, Nissan 370Z, Mustang, Corvette, Camaro, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Miata, all Porsches, Challenger, Cadillac CT-SV, and Maserati deal configurations to come up with this data. **
Based on these results, it seems like most of you still like to look classy in your fun car. In fact, the only car types that didn’t fit the “black-first” model were the Corvette (white won by ONE request!), the Maserati (same pattern), and the Audi S4 (for which blue won by a hair).
Camaros and Challengers offer a lot of color variety, so it’s no surprise that these models carried most of the requests for oranges and purples.
The lack of enthusiasm for green surprised me a little, especially since blue fared so well. Are green and blue THAT different when it comes to car color choices? The Lamborghini Gallardo was one of the few vehicles for which green tied with black and gray. I guess if you’re gonna get a ghini, you feel confident enough to show off whatever color suits your fancy.
