The list of the fastest Japanese cars is very short. Japanese auto manufacturers are most noted for building reliable, fuel efficient, and inexpensive vehicles. However, one of the fastest cars would be the Acura NSX. Unfortunately, they stopped making them in 2005. They were originally designed to compete with Ferrari, but once Ferrari changed their specs, Honda decided to drop the Acura NSX. The Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, when turbo charged, is capable of producing 330HP. However, there is considerable turbo lag that prevents quick start times. Lastly, the Subaru WRX STI, with the stock turbo, will reach 0 to 60 miles per hour in 12.43 seconds.
