A list of manly cars. Literally. This is a list of the most popular cars for Men, with photos. A study was recently done to discover which cars were the most popular by gender. Men, as it turns out, prefer speed and muscle. (Shocker!) Cost and efficiency were not an option. This makes sense as past studies have shown that whereas women tend to see cars as tools, men are far more likely to view their automobile as an extension of themselves.
