Kickin It Old School: 1989 Honda Prelude Si AWS

In 1987 Road and Track Magazine tested Honda’s new Prelude 2.0Si and found that it outperformed every other car (included Ferrari 328, Porsche 911, C4 Corvette) that year on the 700-ft slalom with a speed of 65.5 mph. How could a front-wheel-drive Japanese sports coupe out slalom all of the the wide/sticky tire equipped competition? It cheated. The 2.0Si introduced the world’s first active four wheel steering system (called 4WS) for any mass produced car — and turned the little prelude into a cone killing machine by swinging the rear wheels around like a forklift. Fast forward a few years and you don’t see these things around much more, but I think they should become collectable sometime in the future. Find this 1989 Honda Prelude Si AWS offered for $5800 in Newark, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
