What I'm wondering is: how do you think the auto manufacturers are going to sell new sport-compact/enthusiast-type cars to our demographic in the next decade? In the '90s, kids were buying imports because they had good lines, they were affordable, they left us room to modify and personalize. Plus, parents would agree on it, and insurance was cheap. And, 10-year-old cars in the 90s looked totally outdated, and didn't have reliability.
So in the '90s, there was Need and Desire to have a new car, either of which promote new car sales... and was a big factor of the tuner explosion.
But today, imports out of the 90s still look current, still hold up, and still have endless aftermarket support and motor swaps available. They're not really aging design-wise... and the only way to truly kill a 95 Honda is to crash it.
Plus - the cars from the last decade (like the Evo, STI, 350, S2000) are great chassis with great motors... and now they are getting more affordable than an entry-level new car.
So what are the manufacturers gonna make, and try and sell us on? What kind of car would be worth buying new?
Is there going to be a second wave of excitement for small cars again, like the CRZ and Mazda 2?
To buy a car you must have to be careful in selecting the model as per its price as well as design and engine capacity. I like to buy the cars which are smooth in driving and which is awesome in look.
