Just see what others though were some of the most beautiful production cars since the 90's....

Post up 2 of your favorites (sedan and coupe) from the 90's/00's/10's (current)
...no lambos/ferraris/etc etc.... maybe like a 60k cap or something

90's -
300zx - even today they look pretty darn good.

Cadillac STS - in the 90's there was no better looking 4 door car to me


00's
M3 - this body style is by far my favorite M3/BMW to come along

Lexus IS2/350 (owners goggles)


10's
370z - another home run for Nissan

G350 - I think this car is a love it or hate it sort of styling.... but I love it.

I like pretty much all the cars you posted.

I always liked the Ford Super Coupe. My dad got had one. Pretty damn fast. I even got to ride in one around a race track with Bill Elliot driving. Pretty cool experience running up a foot or so from the wall at 100+ mph.



I really like fox body mustangs. the 93 cobra mustang is still sexy as far as I'm concerned


80's BMW M6


3000Gt
http://www2.engr.arizona.edu/~ocpl/n...cs/3000GT1.jpg

My dad had a 2000's G35 sport coupe on 19's. Sexy car for sure. I like the G35 more then the 350Z.

I always like teh 500SL


Probably not sexy but I love first gen S10's. Especially lowered on Iroc's

Dont mean to rain on the parade here, but the original intent of the thread was NON-EXOTIC (i.e. uner $60,000)

The Jags, NSX, ZR1 and Land Rover wont make the cut.

Supra is one of my all time favorite cars! That silver one above looks like trash though. I like Ian's taste much better.

I dont know if this counts, but its a factory five 33. I love the car and for 20k you get everything minus the motor, tranny, and wheels.

A new 91 NSX was msrp 62k so I think that fits the bill close enough. Agreed, not the Jag. I do like the B5 Audi S4 from 2000. That would probably fit the bill too... here's a pic of my old one (for the hundredth time posting) Granted, it was far from stock.

Why does over 60K = exotic? You can barly get a new escalade for that.

There is an all black S4 around that year that is in my parking garage at my condo. I dont' think the thing has moved since I moved in over 2 years ago. Damn this is collecting dust and the tires are going flat. The same guy also has an early 2000's porsche carrera that has maybe moved twice in 2 years. The owner is obviously a terrible person. Or they are dead.

In response to Ian's example, the NSX MSRP of $62,000 inflation adjusted to 2010 dollar is $97,979. That's exotic territory if you ask me. The 2005 NSX (its final production year) was priced at $89,000.

So yeah, a vehicle over $60,000 in the 90's was an exotic car. But if we are going to throw caution to the wind, you gotta includ the BMW 8 series

Everything posted here all looks the same... Cookie cutter new econoboxes.

Most beautiful domestic car made since the 90s, in my opinion:





I'm not a Mustang guy. I always said if I was ever to own a Mustang it would be a Falcon, and it was, but that's about all the make as for new cars that don't suck.

Paul, you can barely touch a loaded Suburban for $60k sticker. I'm not sure you could get an Escalade in that territory.

Always enjoy seeing people's taste, as there are some cars on this page that I would list in my Ugliest Cars ever made list....

Nick, please tell! which ones are the ugliest of all time?

Sorry Ian!

No crap in my Wheaties, just statin' the facts I know as a kid in the 90s, if someone pulled into my neighborhood driving an NSX, I would have crapped my pants! Thats my basic test for whether a car is an exotic If not, you must have lived in a much nicer neighborhood than I did.

Haha, that is my test too.

I had just bought an IS250, which is far and away the nicest car I've ever owned in my 8 years of driving...a few tasteful mods later I was really proud of my car until I pulled up to this resort in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and was put back in my place... by having to crap my pants at what I saw.

Yes Brett, '67 Mustang... Built with a Brand new 20010-ish Dynacorn body and about 99% brand new off the shelf parts. I'm not into new cars, but if I was ever to buy a brand new car, that would be it!

Funny story about '67 Mustangs. My grandmother had a '67 Mustang fastback brand new, A code 4v 289, 4 speed, dark green. Basically Steve McQueen's car but a 289 instead of a 390. Traded it in '68 for a brand new '68 Galaxie... Which she eventually gave to me after my first car, a '67 Galaxie fasktback, rotted away (frame rust) and I didn't have the knowledge or tools to repair it. The '68 was my daily driver for several years until I got my '63 Falcon (last time gas hit $4+/gal, needed a 30+ MPG econobox). Now I'm replacing body panels and getting ready for paint. At the rate I'm going it'll probably be ready just in time for winter.

Anyhow, Dynacorn is also producing brand new '69 Camaros, for you Chevy guys.

I like the 1972 Mustang Boss 351 and 1966 AC Cobra. They were my two favorites as a kid. As for current cars I like the new Honda Accords 2dr and 4dr. Things change as you get older.

Honda Accord? you can't be serious! That has to be the most bland looking car in existence, with the exception of maybe a Toyota Camry. Might as well drive a toaster!


Nick, I will have to agree with you there. The WS6 is pretty hot though, I can remember drooling over a black one just like that when I was 15.

I agree with Robert, that latest Accord coupe is beautiful - Honda hit a home run with it... except I think it is overpriced a bit, if this car was offered with a base of like 20k I think it would be a great option for a lot of people

Dynacorn makes those too. I don't think you can build an entire car from only brand new parts, so may not qualify as '90s or newer, but it's darn close and a hell of a lot nicer than any cookie cutter econobox.

It was marketed as the GT Limited (500 units only), having the Auto-Bio exterior but no Super Charger (2011). It was in the $60's though.

Going to have to say mine for now until I can afford something in the $100K range. That is, if I could buy it for $50K. For a $40K car this thing is amazing. With mods its 450 RWH and it's pure muscle. Throw in a sunroof, dvd players, (2) 12"'s in the trunk and you got yourself one fun ride.
