    I can't buy into that when the car new cost new, well over 80K

    2005 500HP Dodge Viper or a 2005 290HP NSX......
    what would you rather own?

    It's still a sexy car.

    i agree the nsx is way over priced. i mean it never really changed much in the 13 or so years it was made. originally it was a beast, but its just doesnt compare with the "sports cars" of today in that price range.

    NSX = Way overpriced

    You could build a 300hp b18 for a tenth the price of an nsx

    60 takes 3.7, 100 - 7.5, in the 1/4 itll run a mid 11 from the showroom floor, you can pick one up for 65k, it will pull a 1.05g from the factory, and to top it all off.... the roof will eject itself for a targa top.

    Maybe if the new nsx beat a corvette and were priced better, i'd pick one up if I had the money. We will have to see what Honda does in a couple of years with the new one.

    maybe if they did something to keep up wih the times as far as looks go the NSX wouldnt suck quite so badly IMO
    it was a pretty sweet car back in 1990
    it took them 12 years to realize that it looked dated and that its "style" got old and tired back in 1994
    so they did a huge update on the look and really brought it into the "now" by..... changing the headlights????
    then 3 years go by with the same old tired styling (minus those new sweet ass headlights :rolleyes: ) and they finally put the last nail in its coffin

    there are far too many other cars out there in the same price range that kick the shit out of the NSX in both performance and style, for me to ever even think about getting one
    i guess i just never really understood what it is about them that makes people go all apeshit

    How does an S2000 compare performance wise to an NSX?

    just thinking it would be funny that their "sporty roadster" out classes their super car.


    I don't know if that ture, but really how does it compare?
