In today’s world where you have the Tesla Model S Plaid going from 0-60mph in less than 2 seconds, the question —
What’s the purpose of all these other cars out there?
Muscle car as an idea, ideal and aesthetic
Even the loudest muscle car is slow compared to the Tesla Model S Plaid. Even Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, etc.
So why have a muscle car? The aesthetic and concept of masculinity and “manliness”. The joy of the loud engine, etc.
People buy things for the concept, ideas and aesthetic of it.
