Biggest Honda/Acura fan here....car is a POS. IT's already irrelevant. It was dragged out SO long, that it literally has zero appeal. The last NSX started to flop because it couldn't keep up with econoboxes for 1/3rd of the price, so unless acura shocks the world with a 60K pricetag, me thinks this car will be an epic failure.

No chance. I've been quietly shopping for one, and anytime I find a half decent example, they get sold within a day or two, and for top dollar. The prices are also steadily rising.

Granted, it's edited, but no actual footage of the auto-flambe?

The old ones were 85ish, so it will be a shock if it goes under $110K. I agree, it's a little too late, most people don't care anymore. I was a fan of the exterior but the interior was too Acura Legend like, extremely bland.

I'm a fan of the old nsx's but they should just let it be. To much competition now, and like someone else said unless it is cheap as **** who would buy it. I'd rather go buy a older NSX with the fixed headlight over this car. NSX's are ****in hot.

Why is this car registered in Offenbach? One of the shittiest places in all of Germany.

That is where Honda's R&D facility is. Cheap rent?

I'm going to disagree with this one. It will sell like hotcakes now simply because of what it is and not because it's a good car. There are plenty of cars out there that aren't good cars but sell like crazy because of what they are. The majority of the people buying it will be younger wealthy people that grew up drooling over the old NSX and now have the means to buy one. Now that the new one is coming out, they don't have to drop $60k to get a 20 year old car with 50k+ on the clock.

See above. The rising prices of the old one will only drive sales of the new one because people now don't have to buy a 20 year old car to get an NSX. And again, it'll sell simply because it's an NSX.

Are we talking subjective appeal or objectively looking at how it will perform as a modern sports car?

I doubt it will have the same aura as the Senna-influenced original, but if it delivers on the performance front and carries the NSX name, it will sell.

So why insult me? Although, I would love to go see eastern Ukraine one of these days. I hear it is beautiful.
