No Acura Nsx, No Supra's, No skyline..

Might have to do with the fact that none of those are made anymore, except the NSX which is now grossly outdated and overpriced.

lol, riiiiight, are any of these sold new in the US? with the exception of the NSX, which is veeery long in the tooth anyway, the other two aren't even sold here. (note present tense for those claiming you can purchase used examples of the supra and skyline)

I'm not saying these are not nice cars or even great cars for what they are. But they don't fit any of those categories.

Acura RSX Type-S Named 'Tastiest Tuner' at 'AutoRox' Awards

Acura Sports Coupe Honored on Spike TV's Hot New Awards Show

Torrance, Calif. 02/02/2005 -- The 2005 Acura RSX Type-S drove away with the "The Tastiest Tuner of 2005" award at the first-ever "AutoRox," a nationally-televised auto awards show airing on Spike TV, January 25th. Hosted by Carmen Electra and Joe Rogan (of "Fear Factor" fame), "AutoRox" honored and celebrated America's passion for the automobile.

In addition to the RSX, "AutoRox" handed out awards in a dozen other categories, with winners ranging from the Ferrari F360 Spider to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The "Tastiest Tuner of 2005" award marks another accolade for the RSX, which has carved a solid niche within the important "tuner" market and has won an assortment of industry awards since 2002. Available in two distinct models - the sporty RSX and the high-performance RSX Type-S - the RSX serves as an important point of entry for the brand, introducing performance enthusiasts to the Acura line-up of performance luxury vehicles.

In addition to the "AutoRox" award, the RSX was previously named to Car and Driver's "10Best,"'s " Most Wanted Coupe Under $25,000,"and one of Ward's "10 Best Engines." With a high-performance i-VTEC engine, abundant luxury features, a racing-inspired cockpit and aggressive styling, the RSX has set a bold standard of driving excitement and refinement in the sports coupe segment.
