The 2017 Acura NSX is finally in production. But not like this.
After finally saving up for his dream car, a first-generation Acura NSX, Fred Plan wasn’t about to let it sit idle in some garage. He ended up putting a whole lot more mileage on the car than he’d planned, but his story’s a great example of “if you treat a car right, it’ll be good to you right back.”
The original Acura NSX has this look that’s simultaneously so 1990s yet still very sexy. Definitely not “timeless,” but I can’t imagine a time when this car won’t look good. Especially when it’s been modified in just the right ways like this one.
Acura will race the new NSX here in America as a GT3 car. That means no AWD, and that means no fancy hybrid tech.
It’s easy to think of the NSX existing only as it did in the early ‘90s, with Ayrton Senna giving the car a wash, or Ayrton Senna helping fine-tune the chassis, or Ayrton Senna thrashing the car on track while wearing loafers. But by the end of its life, the NSX was not so fresh and cutting edge.
To Generation X, the letters “NSX” meant something. Maybe to the men and women of Minato, they meant “New Sports eXperimental,” but to us, they represented the dreams of our adolescence. Even in the 1990s, an elegant era of Japanese car design that brought us the best versions of the Mazda RX-7 and the Toyota Supra,…

Jay Leno finally got his hands on the 2016 Acura NSX. All of those years of development resulted in a car that wraps the iconic heritage of the classic NSX with the aerodynamics and technology of a modern supercar into one big love knot.
Acura had been planning to officially start orders on the new NSX on February 25, but it looks like we got a two-day lead on things, since you can configure your dream NSX now right here. The extra 48 hours should help you scrape up that extra $1200 for the floormats.
As for your dreams of owning VIN No. 001 of the 2017 Acura NSX, well... they’re not happening. Better luck next time. That honor will go to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who paid nearly eight times the car’s price tag for rights to make the first custom order.
I went to the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show with an edict from my bosses: “Don’t just stand around and complain that there aren’t any manual-transmission rear-drive lead sleds there.” Don’t worry, I found one anyway, and it’s a fantastic old Acura NSX!
Acura just dropped six minutes of what appears to be b-roll advertisement footage for the almost-new NSX, except there’s one glaring problem: it’s completely silent.
Year One: It’s not as good as the original NSX, it’s overhyped
Okay, so we did wonder about who’s gonna buy the Acura NSX before. At $150,000, that remains a rather huge question mark. But since then, a bunch of journalists drove the pre-production cars, and the first reviews are out for all to dive into. Oh boy.
If there were ever a World Championship for Things People Think Used to Be Better, Acura would finish in second place. America would, of course, take the top spot.
Love him or hate him, no one can argue that Donald Trump knows how to spend some money. According to this listing on Ebay, in 1992 Trump bought this Acura NSX for his girlfriend, the famous Marla Maples. It has since changed hands and can now be yours, just in time for election season.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to discuss the new Acura NSX, which is a mythical beast whose existence has been debated since the days when we first learned what a “hanging chad” was.
Acura has teased us with the thought of a new NSX for so long that the thought of one coming in 2016 doesn’t even seem real. Instead, the car can only live in fantasy places made for fantasy cars, such as the Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb. Great choice for a pace car? Yes. Great choice for a pace car.
