The 90’s is most arguably the best time to have existed in the 20th century. If you had a chance to experience this era in time, you should consider yourself lucky. When you look back at the nostalgic moments of this primetime, you can remember the dreadful moments of not knowing which Blockbuster film to watch. That was the same case with the cars. When most people remember the ‘90s for innumerable reasons, cars are one of the aspects that defined this period.
From a list of best of the best cars all ranging from the sports cars, the supercars, and without forgetting the luxury cars, the 90’s had it all. The following is a short list of the most popular cars in the ‘90s;
1. Ford Mustang
In 1994, the Mustang was not just a car, but a masterpiece with almost all features you could wish in a car. Although it was relatively slower than the Chevy of that time, it had stunning features and good looks that most people preferred it to the wedgy Camaro. Its 215 horsepower 5.0 V8 engine may seem powerless now, but that was a force to be reckoned with during the ‘90s.
2. McLaren F1
Despite being a three seater, the McLaren could reach a top speed of 237 mph. If you are wondering how its engine could hold all that power output, well, the lining of its engine compartment is made of gold that helped in dissipating the heat. The F1 was a car that you were guaranteed to win if you raced anyone.
3. Toyota Supra
This was the final version of the Supra series, and it surely had a point to prove. The model design of this car had round corners, and its engine was incorporated with a turbo boost. The Toyota Supra could accelerate to an unbelievable speed, no wonder it was featured in one of the Fast and the Furious franchise.
4. Mazda RX-7
This was the 3rd and last generation of the Mazda coupe. It was not merely a sports car because apart from it being lightweight, its handling was extraordinary. Its rotary engine could produce up to 276 horsepower. With a capacity of 1.3 liters, the execution of the turbos gave out a kind of torque you wouldn’t expect in such a car. Most people in the ‘90s thought this car was ahead of its time.
5. Aston Martin DB7
This list wouldn’t be complete without the Aston Martin DB7. It was the first Aston released in the ‘90s, and when you look at its selling record, you can tell it was a car everyone was thrilled to have. The DB7 was a project made from the Jaguar’s resources and at the same time funded by the Ford Motor Company. Its 6-cylinder engine produced up to 420bhp, and you had a choice of choosing between a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The above car may not be one of the best cars in history, but they did make the headlines in the ‘90s. The cars that didn’t make to the list don’t mean they weren’t great, but the ones mentioned were the most popular in the ‘90s.
