I tried companies such as Geico, Progressive, All State, etc. and they tried telling me that it costs 12k a year to insure a 2014 Porsche 911, 6400 to insure a 2014 Camaro, 6100 to insure a 2014 challenger and 5500 to insure a 2014 mustang and 8900 to insure a WRX. I live in NJ and have a clean record. Doesn't this sound ridiculously high as my insurance company told me it would be about 3500 a year to insure a Mustang. Does this sound absurd to anyone else?

That sounds about right. You're a young driver with not much experience in their eyes. Even through you haven't had an accident yet and you may be a good driver the company goes off statistics until you prove yourself and build a good record. Things that come into play, value, age, gender, location, hp and etc. of the vehicle, 2 doors or 4, and there's more but those are the ones i think of off the top of my head

Where I'm located they ding us young drivers also, if we had our license at 16 years old, it would go to normal rates after we're 25 years old. Which I think is ridiculous also since there is a lot more bad female drivers where I live compared to men :S

Men are charged more because they tend to act more out of there emotions on the road if someone pisses them off, aka road rage

Yeah, sucks that a few cause the rest of us to pay for it.

We're also charged more just because men will be men and a lot of the time, they will do stupid stuff, like race and do burnouts.

Yeah it sucks, my monthly insurance costs more than the car payments and I've checked about 6 different places.
