  1. Volkswagen Corrado VR6

Today, the Volkswagen Corrado is a forgotten model but in the early ‘90s, this was the fastest Volkswagen you could buy. Even though they conceived it as a replacement for the popular Sirocco coupe, they designed the Corrado to be much more. Volkswagen wanted something closer to the Porsche 944 in terms of styling and performance than another sporty-looking Golf derivate.

So, the Corrado had a revised front-wheel-drive platform and a special suspension and brakes. Also, they gave it a new and aggressive looking exterior design and an interesting and powerful VR6 engine option. The VR6 was high-revving 2.9-liter V6 engine they mounted to a close ratio five-speed manual that delivered 190 HP. And that was a high number for the early ‘90s when the Corrado was for sale in the USA.

The VR6 could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds which was respectable. And it made this little coupe one of the best driving cars of the period. Today, those cars are relatively inexpensive, so for approximately $5,000, you can find a decent example.

  1. Subaru SVX

Back in the early ‘90s, Subaru wanted to enter the sports car market to promote their biggest assets, all-wheel drive and flat six engines. So, the company hired Italdesign to design a sleek and modern coupe. So, in 1991 the SVX debuted with strange styling like its complicated side window patents.

However, it offered sublime handling and a great performance. Under the hood was a 3.3-liter flat six that propelled this rare car to a 7.3 second 0 to 60 mph time. But sadly, they only sold about 14,000 in America until 1996.

These are the best investment-grade cars from the ’90s you should snap up right now. Which one appealed to you? All of them are fast and stylish, but you should hurry before the prices skyrocket.
