6. FD Mazda RX-7
Another car from the heyday of Japanese sports cars, the third-generation Mazda RX-7, in production from 1991 to 2002, was known as the FD. In comparison to other Japanese sports cars in its class, the RX-7 was extremely light, allowing it to out-handle the competition. Pair that lightweight body with the twin-turbo rotary engine and the Mazda sports car was a certified rocket.
