Ima a Supra fan

The nsx is by far a better performer.

There's more to comparing cars than a standing quarter mile. The NSX was developed by Ayrton Senna to ensure the car corners well. What other supercar has stayed in production for over 10 years?

Not to mention the new NSX-R which would leave a lot of cars behind.

Not to mention that V-TEC first premiered on the 91 NSX.

I've got a vid of a NSX-R taking out murcielgos, 360 challenges, gallardos, and porsche 911s. It's a track beast.

The same model? Maybe the corvette. Didn't the viper stay in for a decade, also?

The NSX-R is nothing but a lightened version of the regular 6spd NSX with a more aggressive suspension. No power advantage over the regular NSX (still 290hp).

I think the NSX is the most 'Unchanged' Supercar in its 15 year reign. Still uses the near exact suspension and same basic body it used in 1991. Also uses the same engine just it displaces .2L more.

Just shows how good the NSX originally is. Not bad for Japan's first supercar.

as for power mods: supra will win hands down. the 2jz gte motor by far has way more potential than the nsx motor. not only in pro drag wise but in normal street everyday cars.

i know of less than a handful of turbocharged NSX that make awesome power 750+rwhp. but their cars seem to always be down or breaking (drive train, tuning, motor).
it defintly costs a lot more to get the NSX to that level of power as well. i think i saw a quote of a turbo or twin turbo set up etc to make it 650rwhp almost $ 30-40k.

the supra 2jz-gte bone stock motor is known to get 800+rwhp without any built internals (just supporting mods- turbo, fuel etc). it would cost probably $ 15k for the supra to hit 850rwhp

nsx's are amazing cars so not putting it down by any means. if someone wants a more exotic looking/driving car/style, nsx is the better choice. nsx probably is known to handle better, but i'm sure the supra is right up there given good suspension and sticky tires (ohlins and slicks) as someone stated above

in the JGTC racing series, the top 5 cars in 2005 were: 350z, supra, supra, 250z, supra
if given 100k, i would probably still go with the supra for i know i'd want to heavily modify the car for pure performance.

No matter how you look at it, the NSX is just too pricey, regardless of how good it is at the curves. Honda should have put more power on it as the years progressed while retaining its handling ability. 'Tis the only reason to take it out of the market ( I think the 1st gen NSX designs still looks modern today.

I too have videos of the NSX giving a Murcielago a lot of grief in the curves, but it just falls flat on its face in a straight line. Lets see what honda cooks up with the next gen V10 NSX.

Pretty much.

The only Honda I'd touch is a CRX, for V8-swapping/RWD purposes.
