    I would be very interested to do a relevant comparison ... maybe have to look at renting one for the weekend :D

    I do like the look of the (possibly) new one ... much more exciting.

    It would be a sad day when Ferrari can teach Honda something, or anything, about marketing. For crying out loud, Ferrari is a dinky little company compared to Honda.

    I am always interested in playing with what is new out there, and I am the first guy on the list (yes there is a list) at a local Acura dealer for the next generation NXS. Will I like it, who knows but it should be fun to drive and could be a nice daily driver. I guess I look back at when this car was designed, and what it was up against back then. In its time is was a hell of a car but it failed to keep up, same thing could happen to any car.

    I dont understand why the NSX isn't a supercar because it is "too easy to drive".

    The ferrari 360 I drove was easy to drive as my NSX. Easier actually because there was no clutch.

    I seem to recall Honda winning a couple of F1 titles, which is more than many respected companies can say.

    Actually I agree with the reviewer, the NSX is a great car - it has everything you need. The problem is that if someone is looking to buy a "supercar" they want something they don't need.

    A different perspective: I have always wanted an NSX. I have a Ferrari. I doubt I'll ever have an NSX in its current form. The reason I want it is its honda reliable with awesome performance. The only reason I don't have one: the styling is only "almost" good enough. I don't know why, but I just don't like it enough. Its too plain. I don't have anything against Japanese cars. My wife drives a Honda, and I've had a long list of Datsun and Nissan z-cars.

    How about some body kits for the "styling" issues.

    Why MarkPDX, why? This makes no sense to me, as we are trying to display pictures from other sites ... thus not wasting Robs disk quota. What we have to do instead is alt-printscr and then save it as a new picture and then upload it onto Rob's server ... still same picture!

    Strange ...

    ps: And I just checked my profile settings and I have Imaging ticked which is supposed to included [​IMG]

    I had a NSX 5 speed, the car was or is a great car. If the NSX was a car built by Ferrari then the whole world would be saying "The Ferrari NSX the best damn sport car in the world", but it is just an Acura, well let me tell you that I'm planing in buying another one but it will be a 6 speed. For me this car is one of the best cars there are.
