A legend begins for the Z car. Which Japanese sports car is able to continue to exist even till today and for almost 40 years??? Toyota 2000GT died after 1 generation though you might say Supra is the current 2000GT but seems like no green light for production any more. Honda just decided to hold their NSX project due to downturn of economy but NSX history is just 20 years. Mitsubishi stop making GTO too. Same goes for the RX-7. RX-8 is not really a family of RX-7. Although Nissan makes boring cars today, they made great sports machine. Think Skyline which debuts since 1957.
This is the first generation of Celica. It displaces only 1600cc but it's considered a fast car in its hey days. I remember seeing many of these Celicas running on Singapore road but they are almost non-existence today.
