14: 1993-1997 Infiniti J30
Three distinct luxury brands come from Japan: Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti. Infiniti is the Nissan-sourced brand, and the J30 is essentially the Altima. The bubble back on the J30 is a sore point with critics. Interior volume is lesser than other sedans from this same era. The five-passenger seating is tight at best and luxury features were lacking. The premium price tag for the J30 equated to low sales numbers. The interior was a melting pot of ovals and awkward shapes, and faux wood trim.
The J30 performed admirably in 0-60 performance, but the styling is a major turnoff. A lot of consumers were more comfortable with the traditional styling of the Lexus ES300 or the Acura RL. In recent years, the J30 has become highly sought after thanks to its powerplant that is shared with the Nissan 300ZX. Turbocharging a J30 is a relatively painless process and the car will perform beautifully.
