not sure which rims I like more, the front or the back. The fronts are really aggressive looking, but I like the simple form of the rears...decisions!

Of course it will sell, how many new mid-engine 500HP+ sports cars can you buy under 100 grand? And if the rumors are true it will use hybrid technology similar like in the P1, LaFerrari, 918 to torque fill the turbo lag with goddamn electricity!

I am, but not really active. Just troll here and there, looking to pluck (possibly) a used one.

IMHO, the formula that made the old NSX so successful (a daily driver supercar ferrari killer) is missing here. Yes, it looks good, but IMHO, the coolness wore off because they dragged it out for so long. The technology is all well and good, but it has to beat the GTR (and by a good margin) to make sense for someone to buy it. It is also a Honda, so for 100k+ it better seriously deliver, Im talking AT LEAST Ferrari 458 numbers across the board. I don't see people dropping serious coin on it when they can get a vette for 1/2 the price, or a new ZR1 for a little less. Car like Ferrari, lambo, etc can get away with being "subpar" to the GTR (slower) because they have the name. IMHO, the NSX has no name, and only has a name to die hard Honda fans if we're honest.

People drop serious money on lots of cars that are slower than a Corvette all the time. The car does have a name, NSX carries a lot of weight especially for people born in the mid 80's to early 90's as this car was likely on their wall (it was on mine) and now they are old enough to buy it themselves. Same reason why the DeLorean, which by all automotive standards is a giant pile of sh1t, sells like crazy to this day.

It probably won't beat the GTR and it'll probably be as good as or a little worse than a Ferrari. But for the price, it'll be a bargain over the Ferrari and for the looks, it'll still have a head up over the GTR. Not to mention that it'll more than likely be more reliable than both.

Either way, if I were in the market for a $100-120k car this would certainly be on my list to check out.
