Why do we find supercars so attractive?

Why do we find supercars so attractive?

There are so many fast cars in the world that sometimes one might wonder: Why do we need all that variety?

Now, imagine – the click of the ignition switch, and the turbo wakes up. The torque piles on tempting you to bury the pedal closer to the floor. Your heart starts quickening. You feel the adrenaline kick in. The last drops of anticipation… and you’re defying the laws of physics, flying down the track at triple-digit speeds, negotiating the curves with mind-bending G-force.

But driving fast is a thrill that few can afford. Or to put it in other words, few people can handle it. High-performance cars are not for everyone. But why are we so drawn to fast cars in the first place?

Why do we find supercars so attractive?

First, most high-performance cars are very, very expensive. An average enthusiast can only fantasize about keeping one such stunner in their garage. Only a handful of people can afford to buy a beast with a price tag of 500K or higher. And these are the people supercar manufacturers cater to.

Second, these beasts are meant for racing. Otherwise, what’s the point of driving fast cars, if you can’t bring them to the edge of their abilities? Sure, you can casually ride your Lamborghini around the neighborhood. But is it why you bought it?

Maybe it’s a “power show.” Horsepower and performance specs equal status. It is an instinct to want to show one’s worth one way or another. And what better way to do it than taking your expensive sports car around town. I have been observing this kind of human behavior for quite some time, in various countries across the globe.

And other men (and some women) just love driving fast cars for the sake of driving. It gives freedom and allows them to disconnect from the confines of the human body, become one with the car. When they hop behind the wheel, they get the instant urge to go places. For these drivers, the act of driving a fast car is a very sensory experience.

There’s no right or wrong here. Everyone has their reasons for driving fast cars.

Why are men obsessed with driving fast cars?

It is not just men. If you give me one of these fast cars, I will not refuse a test drive. Just like 99.9% of the people in the US. I am a car gal.  Unfortunately, there is no way to not be a car person. But that’s a topic for another post.

Now, are men obsessed with cars? With fast sports cars? I think it has to do with speed and acquiring something that feels like an extension to their personality. Most vehicles are exactly this – an extension to a character. We buy specific makes and models that match our personality, complement and satisfy our instincts.

With women, it is often perceived that their cars are an extension of their families. With men, – more of an extension to themselves. Men love cars, while what women love more is the freedom cars offer.

Are fast cars here to stay?

Although the most expensive bunch is for a small number of people out there, let’s keep it real. The car industry has taken care of all of us because they (the automakers) think we will never stop buying cars. Owning a car that won’t break your bank and drives fast is possible – check out our list of affordable sports cars.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
