Most Commonly Stolen Sports Cars
For obvious reasons, the sportier your car, the higher rate of it being stolen. Forbes recently released a list of the 10 sporty cars with the highest theft rates, based on recent report by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). The NICB's report is based on theft rates from January 2009 through December 2012.
At the top of the list is the Chevrolet Camaro, with 1,509 cars stolen. Number 2 on the list is the Ford Mustang, with 980 stolen, and number three is the Dodge Challenger with 782 thefts.
