There are as many types of cars as there are types of entrepreneurs in the country, and choosing the correct machine (car) for your particular business needs is not an easy decision.
Are you rolling with the big guys gang, or riding it solo? Are you just zipping around a traffic-packed road all day, or clocking in hundreds of just highway miles? Are you trying to stay within a tight budget, or is the sky the limit for you?
We road tested a wide array of vehicles — from obscenely fast Italian sports cars to obscenely practical hatchbacks — to help you find the one that best fits your entrepreneurial needs. (Yes, the endeavor was just as fun as it sounds.)
Always remember, your car sends some message to the whole world about who you actually are and what your value is.
