The sports car market has changed significantly since the early days of the muscle car. Sports cars became leaner, utilizing smaller engines while still delivering the fast speeds drivers wanted. Two decades have gone by since the real renaissance of the automotive industry. The rise of the sports car in the ’90s and its eventual downfall toward the end of the decade left a lot of enthusiasts scratching their heads.
But there is a good deal of fast classics that came out of this decade. Some of these cars you might be familiar with, such as the Acura Integra. Others, such as the Plymouth Prowler, are long forgotten, and for good reason. Nevertheless, we took a look at 50 obscure ’90s sports cars that drivers have fallen out of love with via Road and Track.
50: Plymouth Voyager
If you were born in the 1990s or shortly before, you probably remember seeing a Voyager on the road often. These minivans were some of the most popular cars of the decade, and with good reason. Thanks to the car-like driving characteristics and the ability to seat seven people, the Voyager was the ideal way to transport a family. These vans were also very practical with plenty of cargo space and an optional roof rack. Chrysler also differentiated with the various body styles of the van by offering a long wheelbase and short wheelbase version.
The minivan market was originated by Chrysler, and the Plymouth Voyager was one of the first models. While the Voyager was immensely popular during the ’90s, the minivan has since fallen out of favor. Meanwhile, Chrysler has moved onto crossovers as the rest of the automotive industry has followed suit with that move as well. The Voyager will live on as one of the most iconic cars of the automotive revolution, and the ’90s model was special for several reasons.
