Yeah, I was going by current cars available. But if there is a new Supra or NSX in the future, things could change.

I guess I'm not the only one then. I also like the styling of the MB, but no MT means no MB for me.

Subaru. They make great cars, but on a personal note, after my friend threw so much fanboy crud at me, I am loathe to ever give him the satisfaction of seeing me with one. It's not like Subaru is the only manufacturer that makes reasonably priced good cars anyways.

Lexus, great car for the general public, and I don't mind riding in them one bit, but I wouldn't drop money on one.

I like nearly everything about them except the cars they now make. The history is excellent. The really hot Hondas gave the common man a taste of the feel of a racing car for pennies. Oh, the engines, i guess there is a reason why they make the most internal combustion engines on the planet.
Wow, I could have written this. Exactly how I feel...

Porsche - prestige and performance speaks for itself, however the body style just does not appeal to me whatsoever
