Unhappy quick question

okay this is a really stupid question but im prepared to ask it anyway

Why do Honda and Acura both make NSX and integra's? are they the same company like Toyota and Lexus?

or is it just a coincidence?

Sorta. Acura is only a name used in North America, I think. Acura has been in Canada and of course the USA for quite a while, and has just recently been introduced in Mexico.

They tried to introduce Acura in England, but no one bought into it, so they kept it as just Honda...

Acuras are Japanese cars, but It is an american brand.
In Japan, all Acuras have Honda badges.
all Lexus have Toyota badges. all Infiniti have Nissan badges.
Those are Luxury brand originated in America, but still their cars are imported from Japan.

Actually in GT4, Acura was part of the Japanese car showroom, but in GT3 it was an American...what the heck, I'm lost
