  • C8 corvette vs NSX. YOutube video


  • #2
    Parked our C8 next to a NSX at Cars and Coffee last Saturday. Pretty easy to see the extra cost of the NSX. No orange peel paint, carbon ceramic brakes,,, it is a very nice car. But, twice the cost of a C8.

        It is a very nice car. Interesting. One of our members who got to drive one for a long weekend (“fasttoys”), call ed is extremely well put together and yet rather boring, that if he closed his eyes for a second he thought he was driving an Accord, e.g., no passion to driving it.

          I felt that the reviewer started out thinking that the NSX was higher quality and more technically advanced-until he got into the C8. Everything changed after that, from the interior trim to the actual driving performance. After that he obviously couldn't get the price differential out of his head. One other credit to him as well is that he recognizes that the car he was driving is the base C8 with several levels of Corvettes to come. Enjoyable and creditable.

            Honda makes only one version of the NSX? High priced. Low storage. Snooty demeanor. Somebody at Honda wants it to be a failure? A light weight, all gas variant priced under the base 911would have buyers looking. Cheaper, noiser, looser morals will make buyers hunt it down.

              The simple ability to compare an 80k car to a 160k car and for them to be in the same league speaks volumes.

                Well done review, not the typical you tube review that usually has a bunch of irrelevant discussion. Other than better reliability (my prior Honda and Acuras were pretty much bulletproof proof and required minimal repairs) and rareness, not sure what your getting for all that extra money. Less storage, average interior design, and no convertible...... although it will be interesting to see if future C8 variants lose frunk space. I assume the trunk remains as is due to targa storage and HTC operation.

                  I am an old American. Even if the dollars were the same I would pick the C8 for two reasons. I want a V8 and with an American owned company my money stays in the US.

                      A friend of mine offered his NSX to me at a good price. He had all the options one could imagine. He payed $200.000 plus because he had to be the first to own one and payed the mark up. Then it happened. Wife wants a divorce. We brokered his NSX and his S2000 to clear the bank notes. I would of taken the NSX but being 6'4" that was not an option. The interior room in the NSX is quite sub standard to the C8. He had enough left over after the divorce and bought the C8 HTC. He agrees the C8 has way more value than the NSX.

                        The NSX is more like the expected e-ray than stingray given the extra electric motors and AWD. I saw one at the autoshow and outside it was gorgeous. The paint was truly amazing. I couldn't get a good look at its interior, but it did not appear to be special.

                        A year ago they could be purchased new with hefty discount from MSRP. No HTC means I wouldn't consider it, even if it were priced competitive with the corvette.

                          Anyone else notice the center console badge was removed on the Corvette (bottom front of the center speaker between seats)? I wonder who's custom nameplate was originally there......

                            Brand new with incentives I've heard the price is 132 grand and it still isnt selling more than a couple of hundred nsx s a year in the USA.

                              Thanks for sharing JB. Really enjoyable and balanced review (unlike some other overly egotistical YouTubers out there). The C8 continues to impress... especially given the cars the it being compared to. Definitely a homerun for GM / Chevrolet.
