MKIII Supras and Lexus Soarers gets my vote. I'd like to see more of them in the import scene as they have a high potential.

Even NSX's are underrated cars imo. I always hear people pointing out how expensive they are for only 300hp and when they see one beating Ferraris and Porsches around the track they always make up some lame excuses like the Ferrari had a crap driver or "it's still a Honduh".

As far as the most underrated, the people I associate with think that an Eclipse (not the new one) is nothing but a weak engine with lots of rice potential. I disagree since I believe there is definetely a lot of room to work with. Of course there's always the GT or GSX too...

No. Anyone that knows about cars knows that eclipses can be fast. So can neons, but most people just tend to ignore them.

Underrated cars? '82-4 Chevy Citation X-11, '84-85 Buick Skyhawk T Type turbo, Contour 2.5 SE Sport, Those are the kinds of cars that are underrated, not cars that enthusiasts tend to talk about or gravitate to.

No, any car can be modded like crazy to be fast. Underrated means that either they are great stock, or have great potential. I wouldn't say the 2.0L Probes are underrated. I think they are rated right where they should be...not that good

I think the Toyota Corolla doesn't get the recognition it deserves. It's really cheap, it's soundly built, it's not a bad design, and the interior is extremely rich looking. I also think the Nissan Maxima is pretty underrated. idk
