I was watching show called Chasing Classic Cars last night on HD theater and it got me thinking. Of all of the import cars we have available right now (let's say 2010 and older) which have the ability of being that timeless classic that everyone lusts after in 10-15 years? I thought I would make a list of my top 5 and then see what everyone else thought via the comments. Without further ado, here is my list:
Honda/Acura NSX – What can I say, I'm a pretty big Honda fanboy, so this had to be at the top. I tend to think that the Honda NSX revolutionized the sports car market and forced domestic auto manufacturers to respect their Japanese counterparts. Released in the US in 1990, this car was leaps and bounds ahead of its competition. Its 3.0 liter V6 and all aluminum chassis/suspension really took the industry to a whole other level. Its aesthetics and engine/transmission are still respectable. Its unique mid-engined layout made for an exciting car to drive and something exotic enough that it still makes uninformed people ask: "Is that a Ferrari?!". Of all of the import cars available, I believe that this car has the admiration of nearly every import car enthusiast.
