  • A “ME” Gets $20K Rebate

    We knew this one was not selling well, in fact very, very poorly. However, if you would want a hand made in America new 2019 NSX,you can pull the trigger all the way through next March. This is a far cry from when member “stevera2” visited a local dealer when the NSX first came out.

    They then had two on their showroom floor both with a +$50,000 market adjustment add on. Both sat for over six months without a buyer, and for fun when stevera2 re-visited them, they were begging him for an offer of -$10K under MSRP.

    BY: CAM VANDERHORST, Contributing Writer Acura is leaving a ton of cash on the hood of their handbuilt supercar – just don't expect to see it advertised anywhere.


    If you find yourself supercar shopping (and if you are, we envy you), there's something you should consider – Acura is leaving $20,000 on the hood of every new NSX through March of next year.

    This news comes to us from Motor Trend, whose affiliate IntelliChoice discovered the "secret" incentive. We say "secret," since it's not really something Acura is advertising or going out of their way to make people aware of.

    The incentive will apply only to 2019 models, so if you're looking to special order the car of your dreams, you should act fast. Then again, you might score an even better deal on a car a dealer ordered to spice up their showroom before it started to wear out its welcome.

    A $20,000 incentive on the NSX represents a discount of over 12% off the purchase price. That's pretty impressive, especially considering that this is a segment that doesn't usually see such door-busting markdowns. All that's missing is an obnoxious radio commercial and brightly-colored inflatable tube men waving their arms in front of the dealership.
    2019 Acura NSX: Review

    That means that the hybrid supercar, which starts at $159,300, is an even more attractive option compared to its rivals. Last year, the NSX sold just 170 units in the US, an all-time low since its introduction in 2016.

    Thankfully, the $20,000 rebate has increased sales since it was introduced in March. Customers who are worried about seeing themselves coming or going need not worry – in its best year (2017), the NSX sold just 581 units.

    For many, the NSX may represent the best of all worlds: Japanese reliability and engineering, hand-built right here in America, with exotic car styling that puts many of its European rivals to shame. Personally, it'd be on our short list if we were in the market for a supercar.

    Good. I have 0 love for dealers that add ADM. Also, companies need to reign in dealers who do this. (This is a hill I will die on. Down with ADM!)

      Funny post P-Tree. My wife and I have bought 53 vehicles, guessing about 40 of them new. Also never paid a penny over sticker. Thankfully the big 3 of the Corvette dealership world, all are forum sponsors (Kerbeck,MacMulkin and Criswell), never have charged over sticker even for limited models made week one of production. All three have put that in writing re the C8.

        I've been known to travel out of state for a fair deal.

          I remember Fasttoys talking about his weekend being able to drive a new NSX. He said it was an excellent car. But lacked passion.

          I do not drive boring cars.

            I too did not know it was hand made in the U.S. That is very cool. I too will pass on it.

                I just “built” mine on the Acura site; quit when I was over $200,000 — still leaving some things on the table that I would have liked.

                  Without the electric power-train aspect what could the NSX be? what price? What sales?
                  Perhaps: 500HP 3200LBs 100K$ 3000annual sales

                  Without the electric powertrain the NSX is essentially a Plus-Porsche Cayman GT4 comparable. $95,000 with some options added on. Maybe a Porsche 911 Carrera .

                  Does the 159K$ reflect the long and difficult developmental process.

                  With the electric motors the NSX is still only 22MPG.

                  Nice car but? Why have only one model? Who made the marketing plan? Why so restrictive? Inflexible? So pricy? Some interest within decision making wants NSX to fail??? Or lacks belief in the car, the concept?

                  No entry level car? No "NSX-R" ?

                  The milk does not smell like it came from a cow.

                    Maybe Almond milk.
                    I did see a Motorweek episode recently where they talked the NSX up pretty positively. Said they had made some improvements and seemed pretty happy with it.

                        It's not as bad as soy milk (because of the high levels of phytoestrogens), but I still avoid it.

                        FYI, in case you guys care (and all of you should), both male testosterone levels and sperm counts have been cut roughly in half over the last 40 years.

                        There's debate on why, but it's recognized that soy products ( which are high in phytoestrogens) are one factor.

                            There's no way i'm paying that kind of $$$ for an Acura, especially when a 911 CS4 and R8 are less expensive.
