DES PLAINES, Illinois — Three American car brands hold the dubious distinction of being the most stolen "sporty" cars in the United States. The Chevrolet Camaro is the most popular among thieves, followed by the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger, a new study by the National Insurance Crime Bureau reveals.
The study focused on sporty cars from the 2010-'12 model years.
The Camaro came in first with 1,509 reported thefts. Mustang followed with 980 thefts and Challenger took 3rd place with 782 thefts.
Surprisingly, the Chevrolet Corvette came in at No. 6 on the top-10 list behind the Porsche Panamera and the Audi A5/S5.

California had the most sporty vehicle thefts, followed by Florida and Texas. New York, Los Angeles and Detroit are the top three cities for unrecovered stolen vehicles.
