  1. Nissan GT-R
  2. Honda Civic
  3. Ford Mustang

Here’s how they made the assessment:

The GT-R gets 8,623 weekly Twitter mentions, 9.5 million Instagram posts and 9,890 articles on Reddit.

One could argue that the Nissan GT-R is by far the most popular.

Why? Well, in 2019, the last “normal” pre-COVID year, Nissan sold 331 GT-Rs in the U.S. market. Last year it sold 227.

The Civic and even Mustang sales dwarf those of the GT-R.

So given its share of market its share of attention is massive.
