This isn't surprising. Honestly, I don't know where the expensive car = women myth came from. Other men will get excited about your fancy car, but most women don't actually know enough about cars to even know that your car is special or expensive.

But dogs are fucking awesome, so who wouldn't notice your awesome dog?

If you are looking to attract money grubbing whores, the Ferrari seems like a good place to start. If you are looking to attract a normal human being, get a corgi, they are the Ferrari of dogs.

What kind of man would you attract if you were a woman with a sweet car?

I don't think "most women don't actually know enough about cars.." is correct. I just think most of us don't care what you drive.
Women can drive and buy their own cars in America. We don't need to envy yours.

My apologies, I didn't mean to imply that women know literally nothing about vehicles. Perhaps I should have said "Women are less likely to be involved in sports car culture, at least enough to get exited to the degree that your average male sports car enthusiast would be". While I think most women know just as much as most men about regular car maintenance, driving, practical car purchases, etc, you're just not going to find a lot of 19 year old young women with car posters all over their walls watching Top Gear.

Why wouldn't a western woman, or anyone for that matter, know that Ferrari = expensive? Most people know shit about diamonds but that doesn't stop anyone reasoning that a big diamond ring = wealth.

Alongside the likes of Porsche, Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini they are probably the most famous of all luxury cars in the history of cars.

The only thing that ever worked for me was using an iPad in public, and that stopped working after Christmas 2010 when presumably they now all owned one.

"Women can drive and buy their own cars in America."

WHAT? When did this start happening.

Aren't new Ferraris just all around poorly made and unreliable toys for rich kids who don't know any better?* Or is that Porsche?


*I.E. the Gibson of cars.

Last spring a pretty cute woman made an overt pass at me by way of complimenting my Christmas themed Alf tee shirt. Too bad I wasn't in my home town (or state).

I don't like Ferraris. I like older Thunderbird models and Cadillacs from the 70s and 80s. There is a certain mindset a Ferrari attracts that I try to avoid.

Ferraris are expensive, but even most new Ferraris are relatively cheap (i.e. 0K-0K) compared to million dollar plus superexotic hypercars like the Bugatti Veyron, the Pagani Huayara, and the Koenigsegg Agera R, although Ferrari does, of course, offer a model in that range, the stupidly-named Ferrari LaFerrari.

Personally, out of the current Ferrari lineup, I'd rather own a Ferrari FF because I like "shooting brakes" (hatchback sports cars).

I'm a guy and while I have zero interest in him, I would however like to take his car out on a few dates.

What if you drive a fancy car with a handsome dog in the passenger seat?

Breed giant dogs that you could ride like a horse and you will drown in a tidal wave of women.

I don't know my Ferrari's but isn't that like an entry level model?

I wrote a reply to this but accidentally posted it in the thread up at the top.

Yeah, the 360 Modena was the turn-of-the-millennium beginner Ferrari, although you could get a more iconic Ferrari 308GTS (a.k.a. the MAGNUM P.I. car) for cheaper than a Ferrari 360 Modena (the Ferrari seen here).


If I could choose any used Ferrari from that general era, I'd rather have a Ferrari 550 Maranello (front-engined and handsome), but I do like the 360 Modena but I think that Ferrari looks better in silver than red.

I want a Ferrari but I'd want one because I think Ferraris are beautiful cars, not because I have any delusions that I'd have a better chance picking up women if I owned one.

I believe Top Gear tried the exact same thing with a Aston Martin DB9 Volante and a puppy, with the same results
