Last week’s post “Twenty Cars to Consider for Your Garage” generated an enormous amount of reader feedback. The cars we listed were carefully curated and represent a subjective view of next-generation modern classics. TG listened to subscriber comments and, as a result, added a few more cars to the list. All of the vehicles in this post represent suggestions from our loyal and educated readers—your valuable feedback makes Turtle Garage more interesting and interactive.
We have kept the same format as the prior post—three concise sentences on why these cars are standouts. On point with recent
1990 Acura NSX: When this car was launched the angular silhouette of the car was Ferrari-familiar but somehow all it’s own. While the NSX enjoyed a long production run during which the vehicle evolved, you still never saw many of them on the road. We prefer the original first-year version with pop-up headlights.
1993 SVT Cobra: Something about the Fox body Mustang strikes a chord with many
2009 Honda S2000 Club Racer: The S2000 represents the zenith of Honda’s design and engineering magic. The final year upgraded AP2 S2000 is the car to own because of its rare high performance Club Racer option package. The S2000 is like a Lotus Elise but with adult supervision—a refined open car that is a ball to drive and easy to maintain.
2002 Mazda RX-7: The third generation of the RX-7 was a technological tour de force when it arrived in 1993. The car maintained it’s signature rotary “Wankel” engine but added twin turbochargers. Even today, the FD RX-7 stands out as a distinctive sportscar that was way ahead of its time.

1987 Alfa Romeo GTV6: Alfa Romeo shares deep ties to Enzo Ferrari and therefore it will always be an exotic and alluring brand. The GTV 6 was penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro and has angular lines that reflect its era. Unfortunately, the American market did not get the spicy versions of this car, however, during the final years, U.S. versions had increased horsepower.
