How much would car insurance cost on a 2005 Mazda RX-8?

"I'm 17 and getting my first car. My parents said I could get a Mazda RX-8 and I'm wondering how much insurance will cost on it."

“Since there are a multitude of factors that go into car insurance rates, it can be hard to estimate how much car insurance will be on your new car.
As you are a new driver, your rate is going to be higher than someone who is older. The type of vehicle you want can also impact your rate. Sports cars tend to be rated higher than standard vehicles due to risk and usage.
If you’re going to be on your parents’ insurance, they can get a quote from their insurance with your new vehicle added. If you’ll be getting your own policy, you should look into multiple car insurance carriers.
You’ll need to shop around to find affordable car insurance. If you’re not able to find an affordable rate, you may need to reconsider the vehicle you’d like.”
