Illustration for article titled What Older Car Looks As Good As New?

Most cars show their age quickly, while others mature more gracefully. But a rare few don't seem to age at all. What older car looks as good as new?


Inspired by leangaaron, we're choosing the Honda NSX. Specifically, we're enjoying the NSX-R variant. Despite a design that's essentially two decades old, the NSX never seems to age. The "second generation" features the lightest of aesthetic upgrades, but both still appear modern and sexy. It's a timeless design. And even if its specs are sort of laughably low for a modern performance car (290 hp reported, though clearly higher), its performance isn't. Put it on a track and it'll hold its own with anything produced after its 2005 demise.

Old is the new new. What older car or older generation looks as good as new?
