    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Stunning NSX, to me the original is the real thing, you've got a beautiful collector! Are you north of Seattle? Could have sworn to have seen you about 3 months ago while enroute to Seattle. It's the first time ever I've seen a white NSX in mint condition in the wild  Love your property too wink

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Little trivia...

    Honda Japan built performance versions we never saw in the USA... "S", "R", "S-Zero" 

    The closest we got in North America was the factory lightweight 1999 Zanardi Edition which was essentially the same as the "S" version sold in Japan....USA  got 50 cars total.

    Different suspension, lightweight rear glass divider, BBS Wheels, no power steering and other stuff.  All were painted "New Formula Red" and coupe only - no T Tops.

    Acura had a dealer arrangement with the tuner Comptech. They mfg aftermarket performance products especially for the NSX.  Before delivery I had a supercharger, headers, exhaust, intake package installed. This  was #17. Wonderful car!

    The new '17 NSX has no spiritual connection to the 1991-2005 generation cars for me + same for many other NSX friends.

    We all have cars we wish we'd never sold -

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Honestly, of all the forums I follow, I can't think of a single person who bought one. I'm thinking the car bombed big time. It was way too late to the game and massively outperformed. Would have sold well in 2011, but not at all in 2017.

    He mentioned "trofeo R" while driving the NSX. Poor performance with that kind of tire.

    Anyone who can translate Japanese? indecision

    Wow, I just realized that my wife's Cayenne S Diesel isn't much slower from 0-200 kph (125 mph). 

    It is unbelievable how performance has improved over years... Cars with a 0-200 kph time under 20 seconds were really considered to be fast and now we are looking at 0-200 kph (125 mph) under 10 seconds. Amazing times.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Only mod to the 2005 was a set of proprietary Bilstein struts w/adjustable spring perches (made especially for NSX) - dropped car 1". Made looks & handling even better. 

    The straight line performance of the NSX was never it's strength.....even supercharged versions are not that quick compared to run of the mill sedans today.........that said, tough to beat the reliability of Honda products.

    On my 2nd 991 series Porsche and build quality on both have been great!

    Almost got myself a used 2013 RS4 avant with 450 hp V8 n/a engine a while ago, just as a family commuter. Dealer asked too much for it though (50k, I was ready to pay 40k but they didn't agree). These cars are special, yours even more with manual.

    Agreed but I think that the tech used isn't cheap to manufacture in those limited numbers.

    Without hybrid tech and 200 kg less weight, the car would be cheaper and quite fast (if the engine would get more power) but I think Honda kind of mis-judged the market for such a car.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    New NSX is a huge failure. Styling was dated by the time it arrived due to having shown it for years as a concept (just like the LFA). It wasn't going to be the end of the world so long as the car deliver, but then it launched with performance that it should have had at the concept reveal, not years later at launch.

    Every car eats its lunch even when it's on Trofeos.

    It's more or less just a tech exercise that doesn't really meet market demands.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    You know, this is the only high-end car I've ever actually been called back about randomly to ask if I wanted one. I wasn't on some list or anything or expressed great interest demand. It was just like, here's my name and number a year in advance, let me know when you have info. Fast forward like 2 years later and they randomly call asking if I want to order one.

    I've never been called back about an exotic unless I literally put a deposit down. They cannot move these cars at all. They're just sitting in showrooms. And to make matters worse, they can't even get the right kind of foot traffic to sell them.

    Audi rarely had R8s sitting on the showroom floor. It was a car priced way above everything else. The vast majority of cars in the first couple of years were always just ordered and sold. They weren't inventory. If they were inventory, it wasn't uncommon for them to also have a Porsche dealer right next to it or to be by other high-end brands.

    Acura on the other hand has these $200K cars just sitting in Acura dealership, a brand that is at best mid-range. Honda doesn't have high-end cars and the dealers aren't usually right near other high-end brands. It's impossible for them to sell these things anywhere other than online.


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Went to the supercar show in town last weekend.  The Acura booth has 3 new NSXs, 3-4 pretty girls, and free wine.

    Yet, no teenagers, middle age or old adults are seen checking out the cars.  It is very sad.

    The McLaren stand next door is packed with people.

    October 2017.......

    Factory cash back $30K off MSRP on new '17's + whatever the dealer throws at the price.  Recent buyers are reporting up to $60K back on highly optioned $200K cars .....$35-40K back on low optioned versions.

    26 cars were sold (USA) in September 2017.

    If you can't sell 'em, give them away......unfortunate.

    For 100k or under, the NSX would sell well. Maybe Honda...oops, Lexus...should rethink their hybrid strategy...for now.

    A n/a engine with 500+ hp, lower weight and otherwise same design and interior and this car could be a success. Or just throw a turbo charger or two at the engine, make it 600+ hp and still charge the same money Nissan charges for the GT-R, they may have a winner.
