Top 16 Japanese Cars That Need To Make A Comeback

Datsun 510

This car is all but forgotten among the masses. Amongst the car-loving community though, it sits upon a pedestal of respect, as a tiny, lightweight sedan that could kick some serious butt on a racetrack.

Nissan knows that this is a car that needs to come back — it even teased a concept car that was a very clear homage. Hopefully the car gods will answer the prayers here.


Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth

The Mitsubishi GTO, aka the 3000GT and Dodge Stealth stateside, is in many respects the epitome of the 1990s Japanese high-performance scene.

Ask yourself this, though: if a brand-new car debuts tomorrow with styling that’s eminently sleek, all-wheel drive, plenty of tech, and more horsepower than a Mustang or Camaro, would you want it? Thought so.
