    (The) Japanese

    (The) Japanese make excellent cars.

    Is 'The' optional?

    Many thanks.

    Re: (The) Japanese

    No. It is necessary, in order to change the adjective into a noun. The plural verb (make) helps, but if you changed Cars to Cuisine, you would see why the The is required.
