F10 Stereotypes

What stereotypes do you think the F10 appeals to? We'll use Jalopnik's Suitability Parameters:

TJ,

I see you also kicked-off this discussion on the Hyundai forum. I'll take a swag and go
with "speed merchants.". It appears that PsychDoc and other prominent forum members have been trying to extract a few F10 owner stereotypes (all of the attempts largely entertaining!) ... and independent of Jalopnik's caste system.

I'm wondering who voted for penny pinchers. Even the entry level models are not as value for money as a Genesis.

Regarding "Very Serious Businessmen," for some reason I was reminded of the song (and movie), "Middle Age Crazy."
Although probably more relevant in a Porsche or Corvette forum, perhaps there is some connection to a small segment
of Bimmer guys:
