Five iconic 1990s cars that you can probably afford to buy now

Article by Christian A., on February 15, 2017

Did you never fall out of love with your ‘90s dream car? You’re not alone. The dream wheels back in the nineties are pretty amazing. It was in those years that cars have started to look totally different from the cars in the seventies and eighties. Thus, every Jones in the neighbourhood gets at least a brand new car. In fact, there are many other things we love about the nineties.

Remember it was also during that time when the Internet era was slowly taking over. We can joke now that it was literally “slow” but it was an awesome time for all of us. We kind of missed that especially now when everything seems to be in “ludicrous mode”.

Going back to the subject, we’ve gathered a list of the best nineties dream cars and how much they cost at this moment compared to how much they cost in the ‘90s. Because truth is, some of us still couldn’t get over those cars we wished we had back then.

Porsche 911 (993) Carrera

Porsche’s 993 generation 911 Carrera tops our list. It’s practically the ultimate ‘90s dream car of all. There is one in Beverly Hills that sells for only $50,000. This Carrera was a ’95 model that travelled for at least 76,000 miles.

This coupe is packed with 270 hp 3.6L engine and is mated with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 993 convertibles could come cheaper while a GT2 version Carrera could be priced at $1M.

Toyota Supra

Toyota Supra is also one of the epic nineties cars that we love to this day. A brand new Supra Turbo costs more than $40,000 in 1990. Then, in 1993 until 2002, the Supra came out with its 4th generation model, which comes with a 320 hp twin turbo 2JZ engine. The prices ranged from $100,000-$120,000 back then.

Acura NSX

Honda also makes it to the list with the Acura NSX. How can we forget one of the best ‘90s cars? The NSX was the only car that intimidated Ferrari when it first came out.

As for the price, the NSX costs more than $60,000 in the nineties. But now, you can have one for as low as $30,000. Still a substantial resale value after all these years.

Dodge Viper

We also have here the first generation Dodge Viper. We think every guy wished for one when the 1992 model was introduced. And why not? The Viper comes with 400hp, 8L V10 engine. Now, you can have one for as low as $27,000.

Lamborghini Diablo

And lastly, we have the Lamborghini Diablo. This iconic supercar of the nineties has just gotten more affordable. If a brand new Diablo from 1991 would cost you as much as $223,000, now you could get one for $160,000.

That’s still a lot of money for an old car. But the joy of having a 485hp 5.7L V12 ‘90s Lamborghini sitting inside your garage is priceless.
