Cars Old People Drive — Latest Findings

Porsche Panamera rear angle

It is no secret that the elderly have a preference for certain cars and brands. The latest findings by revealed nothing new, except for one or two notable exceptions. Let’s get the obvious out of the way first — Old people (65 years or older) still prefer their American-made cars. Lincoln, Buick and Cadillac make the top of the list.

In regards to actual models, the Lincoln Town Car, Buick Lucerne and Cadillac DTS derive the most of their sales from old people. Scanning through the list, however, reveals the Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon in forth place with 74.2 percent of all sales going to the elderly between 2009 and 2010. The Porsche Panamera takes the 11th spot with the elderly accounting for 53.3% its sales. These are peculiar placements because both the Panamera and CTS Wagon are rather sporty and do not offer the ultra cushy rides that older drivers are known to prefer. Maybe it just means the elderly are becoming cooler?

    I’m sure the last thing Porsche wants is for the Panamera to be considered an old person’s car.

    Surprised to see Panamera too; I didn’t think it was an old person car. It seems that most old people here always drive Buicks; you can tell because they are in their Buick’s going 40 mph in the fast lane on the freeway.
