Okey dokey... In order of appearence in the rag, oops, mag:
Acura NSX
BMW M3
BMW M5
Chevrolet Corvette
Chrysler 300C (???)
Chrysler Minivan
Ferrari F40
Ferrari F430
Honda Accord
Honda Civic
Jeep Cherokee
Lexus LS400
Mazda Miata
Mini Cooper S (the new one, not the original)
Mercedes Benz 300E
Porsche Boxster
Nissan 300ZX Turbo
Porsche 911 ("...all 911s built any time in the last 20 years are great.", "...it is still one of the very few supercars you can use every day.")
Volkswagen GTI
Subaru Impreza WRX

The Power Players article listed David E. Davis, Jr. as one of 20 men who shaped the automotive industry over the past 20 years. No kidding! He being the founder of Automobile wouldn't have any thing to do with the selection, would it?

Both the Chrysler minivans and the Jeep Cherokee eventually revolutionized the automotive landscape. They deserve to be there.

I also read that article. It was funny to see that I have owned 5 of the 20! Miata, WRX, NSX, Mini and Boxster. I guess I have good taste in cars.....

Ronzi, you are not far off. "Automobile" made a big deal of the 1990 NSX's all aluminum body bringing the car's weight in at 3,000 lbs. Big deal. The 1990 Carrera 2 was all steel and also weighed 3,000 lbs.
