InsideLine publishes a list of the 10 car models with the highest proportion of male buyers. The data was provided by Polk, a company that specializes in the research of all things automotive, and information reflects total purchases made in 2011.
As one would expect, plenty of supercars made the list, including the Ferrari 458 Italia which sits at the top with a 95.3 percentage of male buyers. Other cars included in the unique top are the Audi’s flagship, the R8 (91.4 percentage), Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (90.0 percentage), Porsche 911 (88.2 percentage) and again a Ferrari model, the California (88.4).
But among all these great cars, one BMW stands out. The new, limited, future classic, BMW 1M. The “baby-M” is placed second with 92.2 percentage acceptance among male buyers. Built as a car for enthusiasts, the 1M sold in the U.S. last year in limited quantities: 740 units.
Since guys like trucks, the American automotive industry is represented by the heavy-duty Ford F-Series and the GMC Sierra, with 87.0 percentage, respectively 87.5.
The full list can be found at InsideLine, but in the mean time, we cannot stop wondering who are those few females that own the Ferrari 458 Italia and our favorite, the 1M.
