    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    People care less and less how they drive. Just look at the Turbo S thread -- all anyone cares about is the 0-300 time improvement.


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    My Aston is more fun to drive and has way more soul than a Panamera... I would also take it over any 911 bar the GT3. The quirkiness is part of the charm.


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Since I have put my RS to sleep for the winter, I nearly only drive my 964 ....... I am getting more and more attached to it .

    At the moment , my carrera S seems to  become an A to B confort vehicle angry

    Decent video on the NSX and it's technology:

    MSRP announced at $156K, going over $200K fully loaded with CF and crap like that.

    Too expensive IMO.

    I think the price might have been reasonable if the car's driving personality and feel was better (and maybe raw performance too).  I personally would not be interested at half that price, if the reviews are accurate (seems like a very bad fit for my driving priorities).

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    It's not physically unattractive, but from the reports it's steering, handling and propulsion seem uninspiring. Maybe if it had more feel, a "normal" hi output engine and sold for 65k it might get more love.


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Seems that the reports about the steering, handling, etc. are almost exactly the same as the original NSX. yes

    No, not in the same universe.  Original NSX had manual steering, fantastic manual 5 spd, and RWD with lots of analog feel.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    I am pretty sure it had power steering and most of the reviews praised the high revving engine but described handling as being so predictable as to be quite boring.

    Nope, manual steering for the first few years.  Later had power steering and 6spd.

    Smiley Actually, it could sell well under 100k in all markets but for close to 200k with options? No way.

    The US? Smiley 

    Acura...Lexus...Infinity...really successful in the US only.

    Of course the Acura NSX would be very likely marketed as a Honda NSX in Europe but still...for over 150k EUR base price (I assume even more), no chance. Smiley

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    A lot less competition back then though. The choices for an awesome $150-200K car now are vast.

    I'm sure the performance on the track will be crazy good, but it's just too expensive for the design IMO.

    you are too polite.

    front of this car is ugly, rear is not attractive either, the only color that makes it looks decent is black.

    the original NSX look is timeless and classic.Smiley

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Honda lost its spirit in developing this car. 

    They should have called it something else other than NSX. A disgrace to Senna developed beautiful simplicity. 


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Saw the car in person here in Geneva. 

    I loved this thing.
