Think that muscle car you cruise around in is hot?
Well, it may soon be.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau has released its list of most-stolen sporty cars, and American rides lead the pack.
In the years 2009 through 2012, 1,509 Chevrolet Camaros, 980 Ford Mustangs and 782 Dodge Challengers were reported stolen nationwide, with over 10 percent of each of them unrecovered. The Porsche Panamera and Adui A5/S5 came in a distant fourth and fifth with 103 and 101 reports respectively.
California, Florida, Texas, Georgia and Michigan were the top five states for performance car crime, with the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana worst among metropolitan areas.
