Rotary power for me! The RX8 rocks!
The 350z is not too far behind either.

I would have to say the 350Z its the most tunable car and also I think one with the best basics for tunability.

One question though Mazda has launched a RX-8 convertible? When did that happen? As far as I know its only a four-door coupe.

But if we are talking coupes it would have to be either the Nissan 350Z or the Ford Mustang GT 500.

I certainly wouldnt vote for................ the mitsubishi eclipse

mitsubishi gave this car a FWD and for waht reason

acura loses out for the same reason.( and no I dont hate honda)

the nissan 350z with the drive-by-wire throttle and RWD lies somwhere in between.

Mazda Rx-8 with paddle shifters and the rotary engine comes a close second.

I voted for the ford mustang. the pony has got some real legend behind it.

and as far as tuning is concerned I will visit the shelby people.

Now with ford owned mazda as second and Ford at first place, who wants to comment on fords ability to make cars??????LOL


here is the 2007 official Ford Shelby mustang gt500

I guess production of skyline has been stopped. Hence I didnt include it in here. There are various tuner cars but I selected which I thought were the best available.


Wow,

A draw is what is seen currently between the modern style Nissan against the retro Ford.

Mazda with the turbine tech is catching up too.

I would select All Of the Above if it was present.

Its a very tough question because all (except the Mustang) are japanese tuner cars.

Its got to be mazda rx8...rotary power is something to reckon with...handling and every thing else too rx8 has proved itself...On the tracks NSX-R is the supreme and rx 8 is close second.

yes but each car has a character attached to it.

eclipse is new-age design with the most powerful engine
acura has sharp tuner car features with excellent built
mazda has the rotary tech
ford is retro
nissan is a lifestyle tuner car.
