Introduction: Just liked I promised here is my Japanese car list. To keep is simple as possible I am doing JDM cars. JDM stands for Japanese Domestic Market. Basically these cars were sold in America. Watch out for my Euro top 10 list coming soon!
#10. The last generation 300zx is a real icon of 1990s performance vehicles. From front to back the 300zx is 1st class. The interior was pretty nice in these as well. You have a few cool options with these cars such as auto transmission, 5speed manual, t-tops, rag top, or twin turbo.
#9. I have always been a sucker for old school Datsun Z cars. I feel the best body styles are from the early to mid 1970s. The cars I am talking about range from the 240z, 260z, and even some 280z’s. It is almost endless how cool you can customize these classics into real show stoppers. What I like best a Chevy small block V8 fits in front very nice!
#8. The Honda S2000 is a hot little sports car. I think this is one of the best looking modern roadsters period. This car is made to run with its high revving V-TEC engine along with being well balanced. An S2000 handles corners likes its on rails. Single? No kids? This is an ideal ride for a Saturday night outing.
#7. The Mitsubishi Eclipse is an import classic. The DSM cars are what you really want. DSM stands for Diamond Star Motors. The DSM cars were made from 1990-1998. Most of these cars were even made in America at Chrysler plants. Many great body styles to choose from. With its 4G series engine these little cars can be unstoppable when modified. The Plymouth Laser and Eagle Talon were in the same family in the DSM years.
#6. I like all RX-7′s but the last generation is my favorite. What a great body style, it kind of reminds me of a mini Dodge Viper. These days most either modify the rotary engine that’s already in it or drop in LSX engines. This car is light weight and with just some power it will fly.
#5. I think most reading this have always wanted a last generation Supra. What else could you ask for this car has it all such as a targa top, six speed, twin turbo, I-6, and classic styling. This car is responsible for turning out many import fans.
#4. The Imperza WRX/STI cars have come along way. The flat four boxer engine has an excellent rumble. Subaru AWD systems are very nice and work well with these cars. I must be honest I was not a super fan when they came out, but now you see where they land on my list.
#3. The Mitsubishi Evolution has been around for about 20 years now. I like just about every body style there is of the Evo. This cars main rival is the infamous WRX/STI. The Evo and WRX seem to go at it like the Camaro and Mustang have been doing for years now.
#2. If you’re a friend of mine or a member on our forum you have heard me rant about this car for a while now. The Mitsubishi 3000 GT Spyder is pure bad assery. These cars are rare and rarely seen with less than 2,000 total made. Some were SL models while others were VR-4 models with twin turbo and all wheel steering. It’s a hard top convertible what else do I need to add my friend!
#1. Ah the sexy Acura NSX. This car truly has a timeless body style. Even a bone stock NSX from the early 1990s causes allot of attention on the streets. This car has a little bit of it all to make one awesome ride such as super car styling, dependabilty, fuel economy, affordabilty, supreme handling, and good overall performance. I hope to own a NSX one day.
