13: Acura Integra Type R
The Integra is one of the greatest compact sports cars ever made. The positives of the Type R far outweigh the negatives, but there were a few annoying aspects nonetheless. For starters, there was only a two-door model. That was fine for most, but a four-door would have been a serious BMW 3-Series fighter.
Then you had that loud yellow paint job, and the paint choices were few and far between. There have been talks of Acura reviving the Integra line. We’d have to say the next-generation model would be a serious contender in the sports car world. You can’t go wrong with the proven Honda performance of a V-Tech engine.
