The target demographic for new luxury sport cars is hilarious academically interesting.
Balding, middle-aged men who drive slow. I am totally not kidding.
The average Porsche buyer, for example, was age 48 in 2007 and 51 in 2012.
The usually accepted theory is that young people either don't have money, or if they do have money, they don't need expensive sports cars to get dates. And that the pretty girls and/or guys don't get a chance to see you at the wheel if you drive fast... so it would seem that buying a new luxury sports car signals high probability of midlife crisis and/or recent divorce. Just the characters you want managing your portfolio risk, eh?
