While not within the classic muscle car era, the 1990s did not disappoint in terms of performance and variety in machines that packed a powerful punch. Alongside American standards such as the Corvette, Trans Am, and Chevy Impala, Japanese vehicles increasingly set the standard, with one standout being the Mk IV Toyota Supra 2JZ. Debuting in 1993, the vehicle featured 220 horsepower and went from 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds. Featuring a long nose reminiscent of a classic Porsche, the car was designed for speed and maneuverability.

Another popular Japanese muscle car was the lightweight Acura NSX, which emerged at the outset of the 1990s as a reliable, fun drive. Its trendsetting design was F-16-fighter-jet inspired and provided superior aerodynamics. Automotive purists also sought out the 3.0-liter V6 model for its 5-speed manual transmission.
