    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    thanks for the video, although the guy's voice is quite annoying.

    old NSX is a classic.

    I don't want to say new NSX is a failure, but it is definitely not desirable at all.

    The new NSX is a failure, there, I said it for you! indecision

    It needed like 150-200 more hp. Even with AWD and the electric motors it wasn't any quicker down low.

    It also took way too long to come out. It should have been out to compete with cars a generation earlier. I'd say MSRP should be like $130K tops.

    Power would have been OK for a 100k car...

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    A few may recall that I was in line to get a NSX through a dealer friend.  I walked away when the price crept upward and production date drifted away.  No regrets for not getting one; it had so much potential, but Honda made a mess of it in execution.  


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Acura's NSX sales April '18  (USA) =  5 units 

    That's five total - not a misprint!

    Pretty sad and no matter what people believe, I actually think the NSX looked good and was a breeze of fresh air in the sportscar market, just for the wrong price (or with a not so competitive power figure).

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Saw my first one in the metal yesterday. Looks okay, but not stunning. The old NSX still looks great today on the other hand, and was ahead of its time when released.

    Time to stock up on NOS because the complexity of that car will make repairs difficult without the necessary components.

    True. Buy 2 (one for parts)?

    A R8 definitely qualifies for that. Smiley

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    "... until I licked blood"? Must be a German idiom. What does it mean?

     


    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Ha. I think in English would be something like "got the taste of blood", meaning like an animal tasting delicious bloody meat for the first time.

    Lower the price by $50,000 and the NSX is a winner.   Too much really great competition in the current price bracket.

    Smiley or remove the hybrid, keep the power and lower the weight (shouldn't be a problem after the hybrid tech removal). Maybe then...

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    I saw my first one on the road (real owned not with dealer plates near a dealership) yesterday. A 500hp ICE, no hybrid and $50-60k less and this wouldn't have been the first one in the wild I've seen. Good looking car on the road. But I"ve seen more Bugattis driving in Toronto that NSXes....

    This is actually pretty sad but here is a very interesting question: Did Honda...oops, Acura...actually plan to sell this puppy in larger numbers or was it just a marketing ploy to show the world what they can? Smiley

    They should may this car happen again...without hybrid, much lower weight and especially a much lower price.
