I'm not even going to say who I would think would win. Yes it's that obvious. (See name for details)

Ok, perhaps I can dig some quotes out from "car and driver" magazine as of Feb. 2002, I don't think they lie...



PRICE
2002 Porche 911 Carrera C4 with all wheel drive-
$74,156

2002 Acura NSX with removalbe roof-
$90,879

Estimated HP stock
2002 Porche-315
2002 NSX-290

0-60
Porche-4.8sec
NSX (zanardi edition)-4.8sec

The 1/4TH Mile
Porche-13.2 @ 106MPH
NSX (Zanardi edition)-13.2 @ 105mph

pretty close call, but I'm stick'n with the Porche!!

i'm with RushHour0to60 on this one. Much as I love Hondas, a 1998+ Porsche 911 is automotive art. Having had the incredible luck of actually getting to drive one, I can attest to its incredible handling, power, sound, and brakes, and anything and everything else I left out that is so nice about these cars. There would be some days where I would choose the 911.. and if I could choose a 911 C4, sorry, bye bye NSX.

you would think that the porsche having more power and more weight would win... then again... the nsx was bred on the track... ive seen BM tests where the stock nsx just kicked the shit outta ferraris... there are more factors we have to take into account...

Guys from BM aren't used to shift with right hand , that's why the guy had to look down all the time , that's the reason.... 98+ 911s are too luxurious and heavy IMO , but any 993 would beat the hell out of the NSX... Not to metnion that for a price of a NSX you can get 993 Turbo which eats almost anything out there in any conditions and whatever you compare , top end , acceleration , handling or BRAKING , nothing comes close to porsche brakes... :!: 911 for me...

To McLarenHonda: What?!
You've heard that Porsche sometimes Races the 911, right? Actually I think you meant to say, "more power & less weight would win". (another post said this, i thought the nsx weighed less actually)
I think the Porsche would win pretty easily, but, being a Motorsports fan, I appreciate it when the car makers are *making* sporty cars.
One question though, why in the Speedvision GT series, does Acura 'have to' Supercharge the NSX to keep up? Doesn't the NSX, like the Porsche 911, have just 6 cylinders? Wow, that's some supercar ya got there! 8O

How can anyone even think that the NSX would even be a contender in a race like that? Its a 90 thousand dollar HONDA!! The porsche would blow it away.

As a reply to Option94, I would have to say that the name of the car has absolutely nothing to do with it. With all due respect, that's just being naive. Now i'm not choosing any sides because as far as i'm concerned, this is a stalemate.
