What type of people actually bought these brand new?
$15k for a base model compact that wasn't even fast by 90s standards seemed like quite a bit. Or even if you coughed up $20k for a GSR you would still get dusted by a z28 camaro or mustang GT.

some people prefer a lighter, more fuel efficient sporty vehicle to a pigfat americar.

Guys who didn't associate with the muscle car drag racing scene, who wanted something some what fast but was more comfortable than your Camaro or GT. Mostly Young Gen Xer's just out of college, who had office jobs to go to during the week.

Op you might be under the delusion that the only viable cars ever sold are the mustang or Camaro.

>>26106507
90s Integra is based! I mean come the fuck on anon, the thing weighs 2300lbs and makes 140hp probably more with later models. To answer your question I bought my '92 from its second owner, an older millennial dude. First owner was a gen x lawyer.

>*Sees base integra* wow what a sharp looking car
>Oh it's made by Honda, one of the most reliable brands in the current market? Count me in!!

As for choosing the R over a mustang or Camaro, idk. Maybe it was marketed as an all-around sportscar whereas the mustang/Camaro were strictly muscle cars that handled like boats on a good day. They were still solid rear axle after all

I'm actually partial to japanese cars and hondas, my first car was a 6th gen civic.
I'm mostly amazed they were able to sell 50-80k cars a year at a premium price point, especially since in today's world it would such a niche car. Different times I suppose.

If you weren't there, you can't really understand how bad most American cars were in the early to mid 90's, and it wasn't an anomaly that American cars were bad at the time-- they had already been bad for two decades at this point. German cars weren't any better, but were more expensive to buy and maintain. The small number of Korean cars on the market somehow managed to be worse. If you weren't a three toothed redneck with loyalty to the domestic makes or a yuppie trying to flex with a BMW or Merc, then you bought Japanese, and more specifically you bought Honda/Acura, Toyota/Lexus, or Nissan/Infiniti.

So, if you're an upwardly mobile professional who wants a stylish car that's also reliable and gets good mileage, the Integra makes a lot of sense. Consider its competition-- Honda Civic, Honda Prelude, Nissan 240SX, Infiniti G20, Toyota Celica, Toyota Paseo. None of them quite hit the spot in the way that the Integra does.

Alternatively, you could buy some American shitbox like a Mercury Topaz, Chevy Corsica, or Plymouth Acclaim.

I would be more interested in the kind of people who bought 1st gens new.
There was no established history for them to go buy other than "its a honda" but more expensive.

Japanese cars also rusted instantly unless you lived in a desert climate.
