CarMax, the largest retailer of used cars in the U.S., says that searches for sports cars rose 6% in September, compared to August. The top 5 sports cars search on CarMax.com were:
1. Ford Mustang
2. Chevrolet Corvette
3. Nissan 350Z
4. Chevrolet Camaro
5. BMW M3
"Sports cars remain an American classic," said Craig Beiner, purchasing manager for CarMax in Virginia Beach, Virginia. "Consumers may now be feeling more comfortable with the idea of getting a 'fun' vehicle that has an enduring appeal."
