Acura NSX, Lexus SC400, Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR-4, Nissan 300ZX, Mazda MX-5 Miata, and the Mazda RX-7.
In their day (and even now, if one in good condition can be found) they were some of the fastest machines on the road, each with their own personalities, quirks, and sets of equipment. This book is more an in-depth account of extensively road-testing these cars than it is a history of the gestation and final production of each model (though some background is provided on each model before the actual driving experience is examined). Author Terry Jackson has clearly driven every model that he writes about, and his descriptions are engaging and thoughtful. Though not over-loaded with pictures, there are plenty of interiors and exteriors to provide a feel for vehicles' natural ambiance.
Japanese Supercars is more a snapshot of a moment in automotive history than a chronicle of history itself. Published in late 1992, it is replete with the optimism, hope, and wonder of what Japanese automakers might yet accomplish. In another ten years, change the title to "Vintage Japanese Supercars", and the value of the cars inside will hopefully re-emerge.
