French sports cars have been relatively rare in the automotive industry, and this is due in part to the small market of French car buyers and the high cost of production. French automakers tend to focus more on luxury models, which are often more expensive than their sports car counterparts. Additionally, the lack of a strong performance culture in France has led to fewer enthusiasts interested in investing in high-performance vehicles. French automakers also have to compete with well-established brands like Porsche and Ferrari in the sports car market, making it difficult for them to break into the segment. Ultimately, the combination of these factors has resulted in fewer French sports cars available on the market.
