    1. One girl said its the leather
    2. the other said the speed
    3. the other said the convertible
    4. because they will look good in it.
    5. A symbol of status and Money
    6. The guy is generous and has cash to provide

    What's the real reason the girls dig nice cars?

    Why do guys dig nice cars? Are girls the only reason? Why does there only have to be one reason for girls to like cars?

    in order of importance, #6, #5, #4.

    i read a great quote about this once that went something like, "it's not the Porsche 911, it's the means behind being able to afford the Porsche 911."

    The only girls I know who dig cars and the guys that drive them are in high school. Beyond that, women just care that your car isn't a busted POS that they would be embarassed to be seen in.

    --- I can tell you without a doubt you are wrong. Women will say it doesn't matter (key word: say), but I can tell you 5 girls, all super attractive, that admit it matters. Don't be naive.

    I don't think it's just about money, I paid $3500 for my car and it's definitely not luxurious but it's ridiculous how much girls jock it. I've got 2 friends who drive Mercedes and another with a Lexus and those cars can't even comp. The only car that girls liked as much was when I got to borrow the Dr. I work for's Porsche, and even that was close. I know girls like that it's fast, it rumbles and it's loud, and there's just something masculine about it. Maybe it's just because it's a muscle car though, and the girls who seem to like muscle cars aren't really into the luxury thing as much.

    Most girls have no idea how much a car costs, or what makes it special, aside from the brand.

    A Porsche Boxter and a 911 GT2 will score the same coolness points, IMO.

    They'll think a new C230 Benz is cooler than a vintage 450SL.

    Come on. Don't you love a cool car? Why should we expect women to be any different?

    Well I seem to remember a chick who asked me if it was ok for her to take her shirt off in my Jaguar while crusing through town, so it MUST be the luxury [​IMG]

    Women go weak in the knees when I cruise by in my Honda Element....(maybe its just the converter.)

    Seriously, it might be the same reason a guy wants to walk into the party with the hot one as his significant other.
    In the animal world it tells the pack what your status is.

    9 out of 10 women don't know, don't understand don't get and are not attracted to 'cool cars.' Most women will like the obvious status appeal of a BMW, Benz, Audi, Lexus, etc... And perhaps be turned off by the really high end stuff (Rolls, Ferrari...) But the thing you'll attract most in the high-end sports cars (Porsche Turbo, GT2, GT3, Carrera GT, Ferrari, Mercedes AMGs etc...) will be 14 year old boys.
