NSX vs. Supra

Hey what do you think is better. A tight ass supra or a mid engine NSX. I like the NSX better it looks cooler.

No matter what way you look at it, the NSX comes on top.

If you are talking about LOOKS alone...then yes the NSX and it gets the nod in terms of being a better handling car...but when it comes to power, acceleration, HP potential, aftermarket, top end, top speed...the Supra TT owns

I'll take the Supra since I could make it into a track beast if I wanted to but I could definitely own the streets w/it

No, not looks alone. The NSX has a higher top speed (people think the crown of the highway is the Supra....they havent seen an NSX), gets through the 1/4 mile faster, has just a big aftermarket (ever been to Scienceofspeed.com?). Sure the Supra edges out the NSX in power by a whopping 10-20hp, but it achieves that through a Twin turbo 3.0L six while the NSX has the near exact power through a N/A 3.0/3.2L six and is much more of a race bred engine (the fastest import drag car (DriverFX Civic) runs a C32 NSX engine now pushing over 1400hp at the rear wheels. PLus, with the NSX, all you need is a Supercharger and some bolt ons to achieve 400rwhp and it cant be touched around a road course by Supra with even 600hp.

You're correct in that assumption. But I havent heard of any 2jz powered anythings pushing 1400+rwhp and running 6.50's in the 1/4.

The stock internals (for the most part) in the NSX are built for an N/A application, afterall, the NSX is N/A....therefore it would have generally weaker internals than a factory turbo motor. Common sense tells you that. Although I'd like to see someone melt a titanium piston

First off...the NSX is only exotic due to it's price...sure it was hand built but it's not on the same level as a Ferrari...the F360 or F430 can BOTH whip up on the USA's NSX.

Second...the Viper beats it in pretty much all ways...

The ZO6 Vette beats it also in all ways as well

So it's not in the same class...the NSX is an overpriced relic...we should have gotten the NSX Type R...which in my book is the best version of it ever...and if the price was lowered to around 50k...that would definitely make me interested

But a 30k NSX and a 30k Supra TT...both used...I'd take the Supra TT anyday...for the simple fact it will be faster everywhere minus the road course...nothing some Ohlins coilovers couldnt fix and some sticky tires

Actually, the NSX runs a faster 1/4 mile (12.9), and has a higher top speed (180).

NSX running 12.9??? wtf have been smoking???? geeez, a superpowered NSX with the miracle invisible AWD system!

the NSX runs around 13.7's or so (u can check it out urself)


also, the NSX tops out at 175mph (u can happily check the acura website). the supra, without the limiter which MANY cars have, tops out at 186mph.

Actually no, the AUTOMATIC C30 (91-96) NSX's run high 13s. Dont even try and magazine time or internet time me on what NSXs can and cant do. I've driven them down a strip and around Road Atlanta. I know personally 6 NSX owners and keep track with all their their cars. Worked on a few of them with the owners. If there's ONE car I know more about than all others, it's the NSX... On our 1/4 mile day we spent one weekend at Atlanta dragway and the guys with C30 5spd NSXs were averaging 13.3-13.4s or so while the guys with 6spd C32 NSXs were pulling *on average* 13.1-13.3s. Fastest time of the day (by a stock NSX, well it DID have a K & N filter worth all of 1hp) was pulled by a 6spd C32 99 NSX {12.96 @ 109.73mph}. They are 12.9 capable cars once you remove the magazine driver and put in someone who knows how to drive it. Even vtec.net got 13.30s out of a C32 6spd on two bad launches.

The C30 5spd NSXs topped out at 175, the C32 6spd will go a little above that (according to the speedo, speedo could be wrong at that high of a mph though). We're talking stock vs. stock, a speed governor removed is NOT stock.
