Default Affordable FR Japanese new car?

Hello, I am looking for a car for my husband as a surprise gift. He once told me he wanted to have a FR sport car such as Honda Civic. I don't know what FR mean. Could somebody tell me the list of FR japanese sport car which I can get as a new car? My budget is less than $50000. I guess he loves Honda best, but it can be toyota or mazda or subaru or anyother japanese car compnay.

Front engine drive Rear wheel drive that means the engine is located in the front and the wheels that move the vehicle or carry the power from the engine are the rear wheels via a drive shaft. You wont find any Japanese true FR drive cars all get their main power from the front wheels and use a transfer case(just fancy word for a connector to the rear wheels) that connects the drive shaft to the rear and of the ones you mentioned only Subaru and Mitsubishi offer them. Only European and US cars are true Rear drive where the main power is delivered to the rear wheels and the transfer case joins the front wheel drive when the vehicles are four wheel drive.

if your budget is 50,000, try looking for a nissan skyline, or a silvia, or toyota supra, mazda rx7, nissan 350z, these are japanese, and they are rear wheel drive, except the skyline, which is all wheel drive.

For a $50,000 budget, the best Japanese Front Engine Rear wheel drive car is the Infiniti G37. But if the wants a Honda FR Car, the best would be a Honda S2000. But if he said that a Honda Civic was an FR car, which it is not, then get him a Honda Civic SI.Their are more Japanese FR Cars:Nissan 350ZMazda RX-8Infiniti M45 (Luxury Car)Lexus IS300 or IS350All these cars are under $50,000

FR means front engine,rear drive and no Civic as an FR car. The S2000 might be what he's talking about. The Honda S2000, Mazda Miata, Mazda RX8, Nissan 300Z, and Infiniti G35 coupe are the only choices that you have in brand new FR Japanese sportscars.
