List: Ten Cars We Wish Were Still Sold Here

Acura RSX: This is the first car that came to mind upon proposal of this list. The RSX was one hell of a naturally-aspirated, four-cylinder vehicle.


Ford SVT Focus: This SVT Focus was great. We admit we love it. Yes, the idea of it seemed a little odd at first, but the little 170-horsepower hatch grew on us.


BMW Z4 M Coupe: First of all, look at it. It's stunning. And the 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine combined with BMW small car driving dynamics. We think the M should stand for "Mmm mmm."


Audi RS4: We want to elope to the curvy mountain roads of Northen California with the RS4 every time someone mentions it. Yes, we would marry this car. If she would have us.


Volkswagen Eurovan: We'll be honest, we just like the Eurovan better than the Routan. Even if Volkswagen made a camper version of the Routan, it woudn't be as hip as the Eurovan Camper.


Toyota MR2 Spyder: That's Mister 2 to you, bub. The mid-engine design is what sold us on this one. That, and it's more exciting than any current Toyota product.


Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG: The shock value is pretty high, and one can fit a lot of stuff in it. Plus, you and six of your friends can do 0-60 in about five seconds.


MazdaSpeed6: What's not to love about this affordable, 274-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Mazda sleeper?


Ford GT: The revival of the GT name became an instant classic. It's supercharged 5.4-liter modular V-8 engine and aggressive styling made other cars wet themselves. With only a little over 4000 units built, the Ford GT is also quite a rarity.


Dodge Magnum SRT8 If this were still on sale, we'd buy one and put no miles on it. Then, we'd ask that when we die, that this be the hearse to shuttle us to our final resting place. Who are we kidding? We'd put tons of miles on it.
