Comment Of The Day: Live Long Enough To See Yourself Become The Villain Edition

I had a lot on my mind when I drove the new 2017 Acura NSX, and what I wanted to say about it. I’m a huge fan of the original, but I wondered how much I wanted to dive into a story that’s so well-told—Ayrton Senna, aluminum, VTEC, all that shit. Doesn’t everyone know that by now?

The other issue I’ve found is, as I said in today’s piece, that people often have an incorrect perception of the original NSX. And they often ignore that when it died—in 2005!—it should have been due for a second replacement. But it wasn’t. It was old and irrelevant.

Reader marshknute gets it:

But legends and myths are a powerful thing. I dig the new NSX, but I’m curious how it too will be remembered.
