Fastest Cars of the 90s

Fastest Cars of the 90s

May 17, 2018

Speed ruled in the 90s. It was the dawn of the supercars, and the competition was heavy to produce the fastest one of all. While some of the most popular manufacturers of high-performance cars made the list several times, there are a few you may not immediately recognize. While many of these cars cost a small fortune when they were new, the iconic status they have gained over time has driven the price of some up to astronomical amounts. So, take a stroll back to the decade that fueled our love for powerful sports cars and see who came out on top.


1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1


A classic American favorite, the Corvette is still a world-class sports car. The ZR-1, also known as the “Super Vette,” was intended to elevate the American sports car’s appeal in Europe. Interestingly, at the time it was debuted, it competed with much more expensive sports cars in every way but price. The 1990 ZR-1 was one of the least expensive in its class, but its design provided superior performance for the driver. The Corvette ZR-1 could go from zero to sixty in 4.9 seconds and could rip up a quarter mile in only 13.1 seconds. The top speed of this piece of automobile history was 180 miles per hour.


1993 Toyota Supra Turbo


Surprised to see Toyota included on a list of the fastest cars of the ‘90s? While it isn’t the first name that comes to mind, the company made a splash when it introduced the 1993 Toyota Supra Turbo. This fourth generation offered better performance, largely due to its upgraded engine and aerodynamic design, which featured the signature optional rear wing. The Supra Turbo could go from zero to sixty miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds and could run the quarter mile in 13.1 seconds. The top speed on this model was 155 miles per hour.


1990 Lamborghini Diablo


What list of fastest cars would be complete without a Lamborghini? The 1990 Diablo was not only a remarkable performance vehicle; it had a unique design that was immediately identifiable. The 6.0-liter, 12-cylinder engine generated an exciting 492 horsepower and could go from zero to sixty miles per hour in only 4 seconds. The 1990 Lamborghini Diablo, discontinued in 2001, could top out at 204 miles per hour.


1992 Jaguar XJ220


While Jaguar isn’t exactly known for producing performance cars, the 1992 Jaguar XJ220 could go from zero to sixty in an amazing 3.6 seconds, beating all but one auto of the decade. It packed a powerful 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 engine and five-speed manual transmission. The powertrain of this rear-wheel-drive legend brought an impressive 542 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque to the road, leaving almost everyone in the dust. The ’92 XJ220 could top out at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.


1998 Dodge Viper RT-10


Dodge was on a roll this decade. The 1998 Viper RT-10 roadster had the same upgraded engine technology of the “97. The 8.0-liter, V-10 engine and six-speed transmission made it a perfect choice for anyone wanting to live out their racing fantasy. The RT-10 could go from zero to sixty in just 4.0 seconds. With a 12.3-second time on the quarter mile, it could reach speeds of approximately 170 miles per hour. This convertible two-seater was and is a speedster’s dream.


1994 Porsche 991 Turbo


This little coupe made the list, along with other Porsche models. The company has a reputation for designing and producing some of the finest luxury cars in the world, and the ’94 definitely had its advantages. With a rear-wheel design and rear-wheel drive, it could go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4 seconds and reach top speeds of 174 miles per hour. The 3.6-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine helped the 991 Turbo make the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds. Packing 355 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, it set the standard for performance.


1997 Ferrari F50


Now, for a famous entry that is synonymous with high-speed sportscars everywhere: Ferrari. Known for designing premium speedsters, Ferrari ranks high on this list. The 1997 Ferrari F50 could go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 3.8 seconds. With a top speed of 194 miles per hour, the F50 could slice through the quarter-mile in just 12.1 seconds at a rate of 123 mph.


1996 Mosler Raptor


This gem is, perhaps, the least known entry on the list. Mosler Automotive, an American automobile manufacturer, debuted in 1985 and eventually closed in 2013. The greatest gift the company gave to the world of sportscars was the 1996 Mosler Raptor. With a 6.3-liter V-8 engine, it boasted 440 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, which would impress any car aficionado. The Raptor could go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and corner like a dream. This car could run a quarter mile in 12.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 163 miles per hour, making it a welcome addition to the collection of fastest cars of the ‘90s.
