Based on geotagged Twitter data, a look at America’s “Dream Cars” by state (Source: AutoWise)

Agelbert SNARK: What's a Range Rover? ;D I see lots of Foresters in Vermont, but I rarely see those ridiculously expensive imitations of one.

What's twitter data? Is that what twits (Hi Trumpy) generate?   

Yeah, I definitely think the above map is in the WTF category (especially the Vermont and Florida stuff), but I've been wrong about lots of stuff rather consistently :-[ for my entire life, so feel free to take the map seriously.

SNIPPET:

AutoWise analyzed over 100,000 geotagged tweets that mentioned “dream cars” and related hashtags such as #dreamcar, and found that automotive dreams vary across different regions of the country. The resulting map shows which cars are the favorites in which states.

And the overall winner is … naturally, the Tesla ⚡ Model S, which is the most sought-after car in 20 states. The runner-up is the perennially popular Ford Mustang, which took the prize in 13 states. The Range Rover (6 states), Jeep Wrangler (4), Corvette (4) and Camaro (3) round out the rankings.

Of course, as Gear Patrol pointed out, studies of this kind are undertaken more for fun than for serious scientific purposes. A professional pollster might argue that the results reveal as much about social media usage as about automotive aspirations. Perhaps Tesla fans tend to be tech-savvy social media users, and perhaps like our hero Elon Musk, we tend to favor Twitter over, say, Facebook or Instagram.

Some of the findings, however, make perfect sense. Tesla was the favorite in the states where Tesla sales are highest, such as California, Florida, and Washington. It’s no surprise that the Mustang took Michigan, and the Corvette took Kentucky (GM assembles it in Bowling Green). And it’s only logical that drivers in rural, rugged states such as Alaska, Maine, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming dream of Range Rovers.
