Sports Car Stereotypes

In a psychology-based study, Merkle examines the thought process for buying sports cars and how purchase decisions are made according to gender. The in-depth research reveals the motivations and preferences that drive both male and female sports car criteria.

In partnership with the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment and in support of the #SeeHer campaign, Merkle uncovers what women really want from advertising and how the brands that understand them stand to gain enormous potential. Download the research now.
