People love drawing conclusions based on a person's choice of car, especially when it is a man who chooses a sports car.

Here's an interesting new theory that may blow your mind: people buy sports cars because they like to drive sports cars. Shocking.

If I wanted to impress women, I'd have bought some fashion accessory like a Smart Fortwo or a Prius. Or even something like the base Merc C Class where you're just paying for the badge.

I bought something to go round corners and in a straight line quickly and sound/look fun doing it. It's my toy. It's for my enjoyment.

I don't need a car to get laid. And in my experience, big diesel trucks work better for that. The Z gets alot of attention from dudes, the truck got tons of attention from skanky girls

I can see how that article has some merit (maybe not entirely true). If you think about it, whether you indend to look flashy or you just do because you drive a sports car, a woman will have the same impression. In a woman's mind, sports car = trying to be flashy = probably a player = probably a good lay but not bf material. Can't say I agree with that reasoning, but from experience, this is how the female mind works.

I kind of buy this car for that reason. I had an S2000 right before I had my Z so girls always comment on why I always get these tiny cars. I straight out tell them that I dont want kids or a wife and sends that kind of signal out, plus I really like the Z.

What if I buy a small window-less cube van as my daily driver? Practical, affordable and surprisingly fuel efficient. It's perfect for starting up my candy-making business, showing that I'm a self-starter full of synergy, well on my way to success. Would that make me a good choice for a long term relationship?

Girls care about the car you drive.

Women couldn't care less, until you're in a committed relationship and other needs get in the way.

Also, depending on your tastes, some other cars may be better than others.
