As the others have mentioned, there are a lot of criteria that determine your insurance premium, many of which have nothing at all to do with the car itself.
That said, in 1985 I bought a brand new Honda CRX Si and in due course received a whopping insurance bill that I thought must surely be a mistake. I called my then-agent and was told that not only was the bill no mistake, they were going to cancel my policy when it came up for renewal. Turns out that particular company maintained a list of "prohibited" cars with names like Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus, Lamborghini, Maserati .. and Honda CRX. A change of companies set things right (at a very reasonable price), but that was the last time I bought a new car without first getting an insurance quote.
When I bought my 2012 GT, my insurance went up $27/month for the exact same coverage I had on a 15-year-old Mazda Miata. Considered the Mustang was worth at least 10 times as much and has over three times the horsepower, I was surprised the increase was that small.
