It’s no secret that the car industry has been heavily dominated by men for years, but that doesn’t mean female car enthusiasts haven’t been shaking things up.
Times have changed. With supercar action films like the Fast and Furious series, hot rides and the people who love them are often in the spotlight. We love to see the brotherhood of Dominic Toretto and his band of thieves, but we also love the mischievous, driven Letty Ortiz, a car enthusiast among the best of them.
For many female car lovers, Letty was their voice in a male-dominated space. Now, the mainstream knows to shout out the girls when they want to talk about carheads. Luckily, there’s a crew of top female car enthusiasts shaking up the industry these days and it’s time to show them the love they deserve. Here’s a list of the coolest girls in the hottest cars, who you should be following.
Some of the Top Female Car Enthusiasts
Melissa Harville-Lebron made history last year as the first Black woman to own a NASCAR team, E2 Northeast Motorsports, Inc.

Once she saw the supercar industry as profitable and in need of some diversification and inclusion, she entered the field enthusiastically adding to the growing number of female car enthusiasts. She was brought into the sport at the behest of her two sons, and Harville-Lebron invested thousands of her own capital, without the help of investors, into sustaining her own team.
