  • Insightful long winded review of the 2019 nsx

    Insightful review from carbuzz on the 2019 nsx..



    he also suggests 120 grand for low mileage 2017 models that can easily get painted black beaks

    any takers? Any objections?

    3 seconds to sixty is impressive.

    its an acura so it should be reliable although the low sales volume does man at some point parts availability could be an issue...

    Mint condition ? 2500 miles...117 grand...

    not too shabby a way to enjoy a variety of sports cars before your c8..

    hurry and take a look....

    maybe best offer?

      Every time I have thought of the new NSX, the short review we earlier received by Fasttoys keeps rattling through my brain. He said after his three day weekend opportunity to take it home drive it and to drive it as he wished, that it was technically very competent by thoroughly boring to drive.

      That was enough to kill it for me as even something I wanted to test drive myself.

        Boring doesnt sound like a glowing report...others that i have seen and heard to give the nsx an imoressive driving review.

        I just posted up as 117 must be close to the bottom lf the nsx depreciation curve for those who might want a stop gap rear mid engine supercar for practically free intil the c8 comes out..

        this is tempting and fun to consider..

        do a search on the 2019 nsx reviews on you tube and they are glowing driver reports...i think pretty much its a change in tire compounds, ever so slight changes in suspension and of course the body colored beak instead of chrome which is pretty easy to alter...

        i wasnt a fan of the nsx when it released either...still those examples option out the door at 200 grand originally and now with such slow sales big doscounts on new ones have pushed resale down to 117k...

        thats a hell of a price for a clean 2500 mile example...i dont see that price dropping much more for at least a couple of years...

        this one is silver so the chrome beak does blend in with the chome front bar without a problem or mod needed..

        acuras warranties are pretty stout and cost of service not to mention service availability is pretty impressive too..

        just shooting the breeze...

          Look JB.

          Depreciation: The 2015 BMW i8 is down to about $60K Started lower than NSX. Different car. But has pluses. Doors. Chassis. Carbon fiber .Tech. Interior.Earlier McLaren 12C started at 250 and is down 50/60%.

          2015 Audi R8 $93,888. This thing here is not boring. V-10. Is a noise maker extraordinaire.

          Mileage: 17,079 miles
          Exterior: Gray
          Interior: Unknown $93,888




          Coming of the C8: The C8 will have an impact on resale of other mid engine cars. Will it make a sales uptick in the segment. May cause other new and used supercars to move more slowly. Drive up desperation and down prices.

          Speculation: If the C8 reveal is impressive, then the market will be suddenly awash in "used mid engine cars" . People will sell to b ready to switch from aging 100/120K$ Audis, BMW's and NSXs to a new C8, and pocket the change. A few hundred more of each "used" supercars suddenly up for sale will be impactful. Reflexivity. Prices may likely move downward noticeably.

          A good time to buy a rival mid engine car used at a discount may be after th C8 is shown to the public. Soon shown?

          Then after the performance numbers are revealed, if they are impressive, then it may be even better.

          The arrival of the C8 is a lab experiment on the sales of other mid engine cars, new and used. The other manufacturers and dealers are keenly aware. If the C8 is a winner, then the others will be in a foot race to their engineering drawing boards.

          If the used stuff is attractive now, then it may soon be irresistible and lower hanging.

            I do like the NSX, the tire switch helped it’s on track performance. Like most super cars, they lose 40-50% value very quickly. I looked at the BMW I8 and like the looks ,trick doors, not bad performance. But I have a hard time with the 3 cylinder turbo engine running 20lbs of boost. I would not be comfortable owning this car long term if I put it on track. Also they pump V8 engine noise through the sound system so it sounds better. The left tailpipe is a dummy and has a speaker that broadcasts the same V8 sounds . I think that this car is an engineering platform to show what can be done. It has a pretty good 0-60 time, but I wonder if all the complexities of the systems it uses are any better than a common M4 or similar car.
            But if driven like a Prius, it can get up to 70 mpg in the real world. Although most reports I read say 40mpg
            i would go with the NSX.

              I half way like both the NSX and the BMW i8. Both cars were maybe engineered and designed to an inflexible outcome and end-result. An end-result that does not allow the manufacturer to, alternatively, delete the electric and hybrid power train components and insert a high out-put internal combustion engine in its place. As engineered, it must be excessively expensive and impractical to switch to ICE, or even offer it as an alternative. If so, then that was unnecessarily narrow and unfortunate foresight? Unless the options are irreconcilable. Im not an engineer, so. Which would make a lower priced and more popular proposition. But there is a bunch of development $$$$$$ committed and big boats , Honda and BMW, are hard to turn.
