Dunno.... but here is a video of it spanking a $250,000 Huracan 4 times






There are countless videos of it walking away from GTR's, Lambos, Ferrari, AMG, etc...

Here is one of it killing a $280,000 458 Spider


Did the same thing to the Aventador

Those of you pining for one should start calling dealers and throwing out ridiculous lowball offers. $20k off should be the starting point.

The NSX was one of the two worst selling cars in America last year - i’m guessing there will be a lot of desperation to move units

Yeah it was some kind of deal close to that, can't remember who it was though.

Worst case of "first kid on the block" ever was the Chrysler PT Cruiser.

There was so much hype when it came out that some people were paying $5K over sticker price for a total POS.

The NSX is an example why Toyota decided to partner with BMW. If Toyota took on the Supra independently, this would be the result - an overly expensive Toyota that no one would buy regardless of performance.

Take away brand snobbery, the NSX is a fine automobile with technology that can hang with most supercars. I know if I had the money, I would definitely take it over a R8.

+1. You could say the same about the reboot of the Ford Thunderbird in the early 2000s. What a dog. It's the worst being a first adopter on a crappy product.

i think a big part of the problem is it isn't a pretty car. looks like a smooshed and stretched acura TL.

The NSX is a nice car, there's no doubt about it, but the market has pretty clearly spoken, and it said it didn't want 200k or even 150k NSXs. I'm skeptical even this big price drop will move the units gathering dust on lots.

Humdizzle is on the money; Honda should have positioned this as a GTR competitor instead of the GT3.

I've seen twenty times as many McLarens on the road as I have NSXs. Pretty strange when you consider the running costs of Maccas to a Honda. This is the same reason the Phaeton failed. People are only willing to pony up a certain amount before it looks foolish compared to the rest of the category. If you can afford a $150k car, you can probably afford a $250k car. Nobody is saving their allowance then plunking it all down on an NSX.

I was eyeing this car before I decided on a 911 Turbo S. Performance is comparable but the TTS is a better daily and won't depreciate like a BMW (learned my lesson buying BMWs, only lease from now on).

NSX seems like a spectacular car, but the price tag, as everyone stated, puts it in exotic territory. And just like the GTR, it's roots remain a mass produced Japanese car company. Wouldn't pay 150-200k for a Nissan and wouldn't for a Honda either.

Problem is, 80-90% of buyers in that price range and category do NOT track their cars, so they don't give a shit which car performs better... just which one is more exotic and gets more attention (prestige).

Not justifying their thought process, just explaining the market.

On the other hand, if you're comparing this car at 0-5k due at signing and 12-1500 a month lease VS 10-20K due at signing and 3k monthly lease, then yes it's a fantastic deal.
