Company and Cars: Likes & Dislikes

I noticed there are a lot of Honda haters (don't blame you) on here, and a lot of die hard Toyota fans but what else are you all real fans of? Now, I'm not sure to ask what are your top three fave manufactors are.

I'd have to say mine are in order:

1. Porsche Just because they have been a technologically leading and superior manufactor for a long time and have been doing so even in 1940 and their cars are just so sleek, unique and powerful, plus I am proud of my German heritage and have grown up around Porsche being a desired vehicle. Fave cars: 911 Twin Turbo & GT3.

2. Toyota This is just a really awsome, supreme, effiant and reliable company, best Japanese company in my books, with superb machines such as the MKIII & MKIV Supra's, MR2/MR-S,'87 AE86 RWD Corolla, Celica All-Trac, Celica GT-Four & last but not least 7th gen. Celica GTS.

3. Nissan or Ferrari Ha, what a tie eh? The companies are absolutely nothing alike, but I like Ferrari simply because it's quite exotic (though popular as fuck) but it's all about power, prestige & styling. But I like Nissan because it's another solid company from Japan with some wicked vehicles like 240SX/Silvia S15, 300ZX, 350Z/G35SC, 240Z (Datsun,) and I think there are others.

Even then I am not overly satisfied with my third choice, but I am definitely a much bigger fan of Porsche than anything but Toyota is still a huge fave, I'd love to keep my GTS and have a Porsche. In fact, I know of a local guy who has a Ferrari 360 Modena and a beautiful red GTS with kaminari body kit, and he says he gets almost as many looks in his Celica as he does with his Ferrari.

1st Porsche:

Ferdenand Porsche was ahead of his time, plus he also designed the highest selling car of all time, the beetle. Plus Porsche has won the 24hrs of Le Mans 15-16 times (record yet to be equalled) and they also won it 5-6 times in a row (another record they own). Favorite Porsche is the GT1 and then a TechArt 911 Turbo.

2nd Toyota:

Porsche...


every model other than the boxster is a true work of art, the cars are absolutely amazing to look at, and every component on those cars are quality. GT2 is the sexiest car in the world...

I won't comment on companies that I've never driven before... besides, I think it's obvious that Ferrari and Porsche should be above anything else.

That said, my #1 has to be Mazda. I know that they had some crappy looking cars before the recent "Zoom Zoom" company image... but they are still awesome. The Miata resurrected the sports car market in America, and is still one of my favorite cars.

#2 is Toyota. I love the Celica.. the MR2 is a nice ragtop, and everything they build is dependable. Not too crazy about recent styling for their cars though.
