Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Younger generations the names Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, and Subaru are all synonymous with quality cars and are considered as commonplace as microwaves and lawnmowers. All six of these Japanese automakers are staples in everyday life for millions of Americans, as they transport us to and from school and work, down country roads for spirited Saturday drives, and on family road trips to the beach.

The aftermarket and racing communities also tend to be huge supporters of the Japanese automaker.

2. Sexy sports cars can indeed be Japanese

For the longest time there was this stigma that if you wanted to have a seductive sports car that was designed to leverage the ladies, you had to buy a Porsche or a Ferrari. But somewhere along the way the Japanese pulled a fast-one on us and slipped in a few iconic creations like the 2000GT by Toyota, along with the fun little Honda S600. These were shortly followed by a long line of Datsuns and Nissans that all carried a “Fairlady Z” badge, along with the extended popularity of Toyota’s Supra. By the early 1990s America was buying everything from Mazda’s RX-7 to Mitsubishi’s twin-turbocharged 3000GT VR4. We also adored Acura’s game-changing NSX for the better part of a decade and a half, and more recently Americans have been driving the hell out of Nissan’s Godzilla-like GT-R and Subaru’s budget-friendly coupe, the BRZ.
