Cars all mainly do the same thing: they transport people and goods from point A to point B. If you just wanted a vehicle to do that, you could buy any car, and it would fit the bill. No one does that. People buy cars because of the appeal to a sensibility deep down, some aspect of the soul that calls to us. It's no mistake that styling aside, there are cars that exist in multiple forms. The Audi A3, VW Golf, and Seat Leon are all essentially the same car; however, they differ in their looks, amenities, and personalities.
Sports cars make literally no sense, but they appeal to people because they express the idea of a lifestyle. Executive sedans convey power and purpose. Sport utility vehicles suggest a rugged, ever-ready personality. Then there are the outliers, the Morgan 3-Wheelers, the Smart ForTwos of the world, that appeal to the eccentric. There is a perfect car for each person, be they a totally analytical scientist or a free-wheeling artist. If you can find a car that makes you happy, you will find your experience of it much more pleasant, and your regrets about purchasing it will be minuscule.
