    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Whoopsy:

    Some of these guys are like car whores, they will buy anything and everything.smiley

    But some buy it because of the technology, they share my view that the NSX is a 918-lite.

    A few was convinced by the Honda guy about the car during development and ordered it, they have no regrets.

    Lastly another few had the original NSX, so buying the new one is a no brainer.

     

    Very interesting! 

    I too think that the NSX is a very interesting car. However - I probably would not occupy a valuable garage slot with one of it. I hope we are going see more cars with comparable drive trains. 


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    The NSX, made by Porsche with the performance of the 991.2 Turbo S (or even slightly better), it would have been an amazing product and Porsche could have easily asked 200k (base price) for it.

    For Honda to succeed, they needed a NSX which is not good but amazing. It is a good car, an interesting product with interesting tech but it is not amazing. Not 200k amazing.

    Agree. And that's why I say that I hope to see other cars with a similar technology.


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    We might see 992 with hybrid technology, and drivetrain idea from the 918.

    When I last talked with Frank about putting a 918-ish hybrid system in a 911, he smiled. But deflecting the talk about there won't be one in the 991.  

    The centre tunnel space is there for batteries when they skip the center drive shaft, and the front diff location is perfect for a e-motor.

    992 Turbo will definitely have a hybrid version, not so sure about the Carrera yet.

    That'S what I always expected. The "new Turbo" will be electric in any kind of way! Smiley

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    New NSX is too expensive and didn't at all deliver on performance. $150K and another 70hp at least.



    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Thanks.  This video confirms my belief that the original NSX looks so much better than the new one in every angle.

    The original NSX aged very very well, from the outside it still look current, even the interior isn't dated either.

    @NSXer - your car is adorable. This is a real classic. Keep her well!


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    FYI, Honda has a full in house NSX restoration program. They'll restore an NSX to pretty much production line new.

    Buddy - I love your drive way and your house. Do I see it right, do you have 4 garages? I adore that - my next house will have that, too. Probably 4 garages doors with double length to have space for 8 cars - that's on my bucket list SmileySmileySmileySmiley
