Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.

Happy almost-Independence Day. We’re celebrating with a real American supercar, the Ohio-built (and largely American-engineered) 2017 Acura NSX. Ask me stuff about it.

We tested this car when it launched a year ago, but this is the first time your Jalopnik staff gets to spend several days living with Honda’s new supercar. It’s spending the weekend at my place.

It’s true that the NSX was stuck in one of the longest development hells we’ve seen recently. And it’s true that the car is often dismissed out of hand by the keyboard warriors for being too big, too heavy, too ugly, too hybrid or too far from the original. (Which I have driven, in case you’re wondering where my perspective’s at on this one.)


It’s also true that pretty much every take I’ve read on this car, including our own, has been overwhelmingly positive. I’m eager to see what it can do for myself.

As you’ve probably seen, the new NSX packs a 3.5-liter V6 with two turbos and an all-wheel drive hybrid system good for a total of 573 horsepower. As I write this the car is parked across the street at our office in Manhattan, waiting to be unleashed. I’ll do that later today.

But for now, what do you want to know about it? What should we include in the review?


Sticker’s $205,000, by the way. We’ll see if it’s worth it.

Suppose someone offers you an, “unlimited managed supply of puppies.” By this, the puppies would always be walked, fed, have gone to the bathroom, groomed, and be pre-napped. So whenever you would want one or more puppies for maximum puppy enjoyment time, up to a dozen of them would be at the ready for maximum Patrick Puppy Time. When any given managed puppy reaches 12 months of age, they are placed into a loving home and replaced with a new managed puppy. This arrangement is for as long as you are fit and able to enjoy these managed puppies.

So if any option was free: new NSX, old NSX Type R, or managed puppies for life?
