“A recent Cars.com survey shows a clear majority of Americans want to purchase a car that contributes substantially to the U.S. economy, but gauging such contributions is no small task.

Taking the number five spot is the beloved sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette. The iconic Chevy model is assembled in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
