These Are the Top Dream Cars in Every State in America

A new study reveals the top American dream cars in every state as mentioned on Twitter. Many Americans appear to be dreaming about Teslas.


What car do residents of your state pine over? A new study by Autowise may provide some insight. The website determined the “dream car” for all 50 states using geotagged Twitter data. Over the course of three months, they tracked mentions of “dream car” and “#dreamcar” and the car mentioned in conjunction with those terms.

Americans, it turns out, really appear to be dreaming about the Tesla Model S and the Ford Mustang. (A full list of the vehicles and states is below.)

While the results may be fun and often intriguing, take this not-particularly-scientific study with a grain of salt. The results likely correlate more strongly with social media usage patterns than widespread state-wide sentiment. Tesla owners, for instance, may be more likely to be tech-savvy active social media users (not to mention particularly enthusiastic about their car choice). Or Camaro owners, for example, may be more fond of that particular “#dreamcar” hashtag than, say, Land Cruiser drivers.

Those caveats acknowledged, the distinction between Michigan people being Ford Mustang people and Ohio people being Chevrolet Corvette people seems surprisingly on point.
