    Exclamation My top cars list after 1990!

    American Made
    1.) Viper
    2.) 2003 Mustang Cobra
    3.) ZO6 Corvette
    4.) Dodge Prowler
    5.) '95 Thunderbird SC

    Foreign
    1.) Turbo Supra (Turbo)
    2.) Nissan 300ZX (Turbo)
    3.) RX7 Turbo (late model)
    4.) BMW M3 (late model)
    5.) Eclipse (Turbo)

    Keep in mind that these are cars under 100K and straight from the factory. How would you guys construct your top five favorites?? Keep in mind that I rated my top five by what I would buy if I could afford to own it.

    Question hmmm.....

    On the Foreign side everything is a turbo except the BMW. Why is it that smaller engines are better suited for turbo's. Is it because they turn more rpm's. I know that would be a plus for a supercharged engine, but why do smaller engines go with turbo instead of superchargers?

    Seems they just wring a lot more out of an engine overseas. I'm kind of disappointed the new RX8 isn't turbo, although they say it's close in power. I'd love to see that come out later. Still, I prefer that last RX7. I'd like to see turbo's get used here again on something other than a diesel truck.
