A driver's choices
Honda NSX (LA-NA1) The penultimate road car for the absolute purest driving enthusiast who demands precision, performance, and pleasure from their autos. It challenged and defeated the exotic supercars of Europe using only the principle of maximizing the driver's connection with the road. Ayrton Senna can vouch for that.
Nissan Skyline GT-R (E-BNR32) Superb touring car with just the right amount of electronic intervention that rewards an intent driver. The finest, most influential GT-R ever produced was the BNR32 chassis, from the simpler days of the GT-R legacy.
Toyota MR2 (E-AW11) Independent suspension, short wheelbase, mid-engine, and 900kg kerb weight make this tiny coupe a dream to drive, while costing only pocket change. A stellar example of when cars from back in the day had less bullshit and more driving for your dollar.
Lotus Elise This innocent-looking car is Britain's last produced with driver centricity. An evolution on the MR2's long-defunct formula of low-cost, low-weight, high-fun MR sports coupe for the enthusiast.
Ruf RGT (997) The NSX of the Western world, the RGT is the purest sports car from Europe--an acquired taste for only the quintessential driver. No fancy bullshit, this and the NSX are effectively the highest breed of sports car for the winding road.
Ruf CTR (930) The final stage for a driving enthusiast is this innocuous turbocharged beast. Every single ounce of courage and driving skill is extracted from the driver by this widowmaking-machine; but, the rewarded pleasure is ceaseless.
America (and Americans) simply lack an acquired taste in fine motoring and finesse in their designs. Therefore, I don't have a favourite American car--and I won't even ******** bother associating with American companies who haven't yet elevated themselves to a higher level of driving essence; a level where drivers live for the pleasure of the road.
