The Senna pedigree is the worst part of the NSX.

People talk about it like he Senna was driving the NSX day after day providing feedback to the chassis and suspension engineers.

SENNA DROVE THE PROTOTYPE PRODUCTION NSX AT SUZUKA ONCE IN 1989 AND TOLD HONDA IT FELT FRAGILE LIKE A SOFT NOODLE.

Honda then proceeded to increase chassis stiffness by 50% to make it more like an Al Dente noodle.

Yet, if you listen to NSX dick riders, they will tell you the chassis was developed by Senna.

NSX is a legend any way you slice it

cabin-forward design by Pininfarina
first mass-produced all aluminum body
the benchmark for the Mac F1

I believe a few magazines did mention Senna had a bigger involvement than what you can find on youtube...he did further testing on it at the ring. That and he's owned a few with the iconic photo of him washing one...are there other vehicles that are closely associated with revered F1 drivers?

it doesn't really share parts with the rest of the Honda platform so of course maintenance is expensive...it's an exotic in the sense the street price back then is worth 150k now...do you buy an Aston from almost 30 years ago and expect it to be fair on your wallet?

How do u put a price on the feels something gives? As you get older your perception of value changes and the things that you canít quantify statistically mean more to you.

Itís all about the feels.

If i could buy back my old NSX today, I'd buy it back in a heartbeat. I will probably pay a bit more than what I sold it for (65k) too.
IMO NSX (NA1 with no PS) has the best steering feel out of all the cars i have driven. 2nd time around I will run narrower tires front and back, regear the box, a little softer suspension and quieter exhaust to make it nimble and fun. It's not the best track car as I don't fit in it with helmet on, the steering wheel is also super heavy in slow speed.

Don't listen to them. They're just trying to lower the demand for it to get one themselves

I'm actually stuck in the exact same position you are OP. I have a S2K CR already but I've always desired to have an NSX since my younger days, but now that I'm in a position to buy one it seems that there's so much other choices that are a much better "VALUE". Porsche cayman S, BMW M2, e90 M3, new CTR, and the list goes on. I use the word value because that is something that can be quantified to a degree.

I've been told that the NSX is just like a larger more roomy version of the S2K, but like the S2K it seems that it is able to invoke emotions that are unquantifiable. The cost of a NSX is a minimum of $60,000 and thats probably not even for a prime example. Its pretty much the balance between what is heart and mind, something we all struggle with lol. Practicality and wants. But on the plus side, the NSX is pretty much guaranteed to hold its value especially since the new one is absolute dogshit

I'd wager an NSX will hold value much better than the modern vehicles people are comparing to here.

It also doesn't seem to be a car that you buy for the stats. I find it funny when people complain that a car isn't good at something it was never intended to be good at ie. an NSX not being fast. If you just want to have a fast car go buy a Camaro or a Mustang and go ham sammich on the engine.

Maybe calling it absolute dogshit was excessive but its definitely not impressive. With the limited time I spent in the new NSX, I found that the car was just unimpressive in all the categories For something that was in the works for more than a decade and utilizing the newest technology at the time, it felt the same as my GTR if not worse. The car definitely looks much sleeker than the brutish look of the GTR, but once getting going the car handling was "piggish" and not as responsive as I believed it to be.

Edit: One of the biggest gripes with the car is the interior finishing and details. For the expectation of something that should be competing with the italians and germans, the interior is seriously lacking. The steering wheel looks like it came staigth out of a RDX. Everything already knows the interior of the GTR is lacking, but the NSX is identified as a luxury supercar with the latest technology embedded.

In general, the coupes are more desirable to maintain the rigidity. But of course for those who just wanna drive around downtown in the summer...

Actually back up for sale, not as attractive as it seems. Canadian vehicle with no accidents. Originally from Alberta, was also registered in Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Weekend cars that were located in other provinces and states don't bother me as much as they used to. I doubt it was winter driven in those provinces which was likely a factor in the low mileage.

I would not turn down a gt3 rs because the original owner lived in Ontario. Some of these cars get resold often as owners want to change it up.

I agree, especially for weekend warriors like these. The owners are bound to have daily drivers to take most of the everyday traffic beatings. I'm just thinking a totally "pristine" one would be first hand owner purchased from Burrard Acura and spent most of its life in bc.

I wouldn't hesitate much to grab a Gt3 rs from out east either, but I would much prefer one from bc haha

Looks legit

Sometimes they want to blow up someone's email or phone for fun?

I think that angry s2000 CL poster is still going strong posting fake ads
