When it comes to a decade that really defines the automotive industry, the ’90s were a prosperous time of great innovation. The domestic automakers hit their strides especially by selling the big and bold SUVs that the industry still loves to this day. Even more, the decade set the pace for the future of automotive design and innovation. The sports car market has come a long way since then, with a good deal of advancements that have helped the vehicles to be more fuel efficient and fun to drive.
