A picture is worth a thousand words and the car an entrepreneur chooses to drive says a lot about the entrepreneur and his or her personality. Entrepreneurs drive specific cars for various reasons. Some choose a car brand in order to impress or for practical reasons. For others, their office is their car.
Here are the top 10 entrepreneur car personalities (according to the entrepreneurdex editorial staff) and the reasons those entrepreneurs drive the cars they drive. We chose three cars we like to suit each personality.
When substance is irrelevant and image is the only thing. For some entrepreneurs, image is everything so impressions do count. Entrepreneurs who need to “walk the walk and talk the talk,” and impress the successful people they work with or want to work with, drive one of the following vehicles that screams, “Hey, I’ve already made it, look at me!”
New kid on the block: Jaguar F-Type Convertible
The new 2014 F-Type has a super-charged engine so the entrepreneur feels “in control.” It’s a work of art. 28 MPG on the highway. The F-Type is priced from $69k to $92k.
Note: We fought like cats and dogs within the editorial team in this category. Some people suggested Lexus but it seems like everyone has a Lexus and we don’t believe the Lexus image is that of an entrepreneur.
