Toyota has the global recognition as having the best reliability and quality in their cars. (regardless of anyone's loyalty or fan-adoration for a brand) Unfortunately, Toyota hasn't been making cars geared towards the tuner crowd.

Nissan probably has the most acclaimed top end car with the US release of the GTR.

Honda has made tremendous leaps and bounds with their accords and civics. Almost neck and neck with Toyota while providing a car (civic) that is a household name.

Suzuki... well they have awesome motorcycles.

Subaru seems to have the WRX line; but that's about it. Plus, the STi is getting it's ass kicked by the Evo in recent models.

Bringing up Mitsubishi. Good cars? Yes. Incredible cars? No. With it's impressive Evo line as well as it's respectable base Lancer versions lots of street cred as far as engineering and AWD. Popularity of the Eclipse in the late 90s and early 2000s helped as well although the design and performance are in a class of it's own. That's not a compliment. It's better than a Corolla. But it's shadowed behind RX-8s, Lancers, STi's, 350Z, etc. Their even behind cars like the Dodge Neons in some aspect. I mean perhaps Mitsu is trying to put it against the smaller market like the Civic, Corolla, etc with the Evo available. However, the Evo is a different type of sports car while the Eclipse has a history as a sports car.

Mazda. Rotary. RX-7. Aside from that, they are behind many car companies. The RX-8, while liked by some, disappointed many rotary (as well as sports car) enthusiasts. You would think that this being the only sports car offered by Mazda would have better performance... Hopefully 2012 will bring a rebirth of Mazda and the Xs.

i wud have to say nissan on this one. with the release of the r35 it has just about every other jap company scrambling to shell out a jap supercar....i even heard rumors that even infinity is tring to make something to beat the r35 but thats just a rumor


pretty much all automakers are shelling out their 'best'. Acura's throwing down the new NSX, Toyota and Lexus are shooting for the LF-A and MKV Supra, etc.

oh and Infinity = Nissan.

I would choose Lexus, they're cars are fantastic. They are part of toyota group but I think for common cars, honda might be better than toyota!

I like all of the different Japanese manufacturers for different reason. For some reason I would love to rock a Suzuki Alto Works.

well i would have to say Toyota due to the fact that more of their cars are RWD. But Nissan is my favorite japanese company for sure.

infiniti making a GTR killer (or equal) would bring inbalance to the GTR's sales, nissan wouldn't take that risk.
