NSX is just an overpriced car...A Supra will kill it if u suit it up using as much money as u would spend just buying an NSX...

Comparing a NSX vs a supra stock theres no question... both very nice cars. But the nsx is in a different league then the supra.

i think that the nsx is more of a dreamers car, the supra is atleast achievable for younger car enthusiast's with half decent jobs.

if an nsx was cheaper, i'm sure that it'd be a complete over-haul for honda, i don't think that they're be able to produce enough cars quick enough to suite other car enthusiast's.

personally, an nsx is my dream car, one day.. i'd LOVE to own one..

I would take the NSX over the Supra. The NSX should have an advantage on the 1/4, its lighter and it's mid engine layout gives the rear tires more traction. If the NSX was as cheap as the Supra, then there will be just as many NSX's in the street racing scene as the Supra. It handles better for a fact, due to its engine layout and better weight ratio. No matter what suspension or tires you put in a Supra, if you put the same amount of money into a NSX; it will handle better then the Supra. The Supra just can't overcome its front heavy characteristic, at least compared to the NSX. Plus, the NSX is much more rare, and exotic, so it would turn more heads as you're driving by.

Besides, Honda is replacing the current NSX soon. They are supposed to replace it in 2007 or 2008. It's supposed to produce upwards of 350hp. But this hp number is speculation and a rumor spread allegedly by a Honda employee. Anyways, the new NSX is based on the Honda HSC (Honda Sports Concept)

that is the most beautiful thing i've ever seen produced by honda.... *whipes drool from mouth*...

do you think that honda will try and produce this as the first stock standard production line car capable of 200mph?, the original NSX was capable of 170mph i think it was, and that was with 276hp, so with 350hp, it should be able to reach over 200mph quite easily.

EDIT: Spelt words wrong.

I've already got two excellent cars, a great sound car that's perfectly reliable after 222k miles and nice 360+rwhp 300zxtt (Again with a good sound system).

The new NSX due out in "3-4 years" Will be V10 powered and produce "over 400hp". Those were Honda's president own words.

The 91-96 C30 270hp NSX was capable of 175mph while the 290hp 97-05 NSX is capable of close to 180mph.

I'm pretty sure they arent going to lower the price from previous NSXs.

Are you sure Honda is going to do a V10? Thats very unlike them, hell, Honda doesnt even like producing V8's. They stubbornly refuse to build a V8, due to bad efficiency and bad emission levels, and now they are planning to build a V10? But Honda does build a killer of a V10 engine for the F1 Honda 007. Althought, thats a million dollar machine.
I guess, if the Honda's president said those words, then he's really aiming at pushing the NSX as an exotic sports car and put in the same class as Ferrari F430 or 360. But if they do succeed in putting a V10 into the NSX, then it'll actually be a pretty good deal. Considering the reliability of a Honda and Ferrari-like performance. I guess, we'll just have to wait and see.

It's probaly going to stay at the same price or raise it. There's no way they are going to sell a mid-engined V10 powered all aluminum car for anything less then 90k.
