Over the past few decades, Honda has established a reputation for offering stylish, powerful, and efficient vehicles. The following classic Honda models helped the Japanese carmaker establish its name.
The S600 was a roadster that raised the bar in the industry. Its styling stood in good company with other popular roadsters like the Triumphs and Austin-Healeys. The S600 was also the first-ever Honda production vehicle to be available in two trim levels.
Quirky elegance comes to the forefront with the Z600 hatchback. As one of the first Honda models for sale in the United States, the Z600 appeared on motorcycle dealership lots from 1970 to 1974 because no Honda dealerships existed across America. This hatchback became well-known, despite its short-lived lifespan. Eric Burns broke the land-speed record in 2008 for stock body production cars with 750 cc engines for this model.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, supercar performance at the fraction of the price of competitors became a reality. The NSX was sold under the Acura nameplate in the United States. This sports car debuted as a 1990 model, offering a 3.0-liter V6 engine, before eventually being discontinued in 2005.
