“We took a count of the 2 most popular hashtags associated with each car,” the company said in releasing the findings. “By finding a total per car, we were able to find the most popular cars on the list.”

    • Supercars, sir- intensely engineered exotics manufactured in limited numbers for those with unlimited budgets.
      On the list, only the Audi R8 and Acura NSX are even remotely affordable- if you consider 2 bedroom house money for a car “affordable”.
      Arguably, the new mid-engined ‘Vette and Shelby 500 could join, but this list was generated from internet droolers, not doers.
      The real question is: Where’s the Porsche GT2, which is on par with all save the Bugattis?
