I recently bought my Honda Prelude and it is by far the best car I've ever owned. Stock Preludes are decent to look at, but when you stick a good looking body kit on, this car gleams. I have had so many compliments on this car that sometimes I literally have to excuse myself from them in leiu of having to leave! Stock, this engine pushes out 195hp and from a 4 banger! Just imagine what a super charger or turbo and some bolt ons could do to this, a turbo alone could probably push it into the 300hp range. Stock exhaust sounds great on this machine, and the limited slip differential tranny makes this car have the smoothest shifting in any manual I've driven. You wont regret buying a Prelude
195 hp out of a 4 cylinder, awesome transmission, great looks inside and out, Honda quality that lasts and lasts.
It is a bit on the heavy side. This car wants you to drive it fast, and so you use a lot more gas in it than is usual for a four banger. But, if you need a fuel economic sports car, don't rule it out, it will still get at least 22mpg.
