Can you tell an '85 Celica from a Corolla made that same year? Think you can distinguish a 1995 Eclipse from a 1998 Supra, or tell the difference between the great Japanese racing cars of the '60s? If so, buckle up -- and see if you have what it takes to ace this quiz on the greatest Japanese performance vehicles ever made!
Toyota; Honda; Nissan; Mitsubishi; Isuzu; There's no shortage of iconic Japanese car manufacturers pumping out vehicles for racing, luxury drivers and everyday use. While each of these brands offers its own unique models, designs and features, there's one thing that Japanese car makers have always had in common -- a reputation for producing long-lasting, dependable cars that keep on driving well over 100,000 miles.
Yet with the introduction of the Toyota 2000GT and some early Datsun models in the '60s, the Japanese car industry found itself increasingly being recognized for performance, style and speed. In fact, companies like Nissan and Toyota took on many of the greatest European car designers over the years, offering vehicles capable of performing at the highest levels -- and often at a lower price point than many of their competitors.
