The new NSX in 2015 - Thoughts?

$110k is not too expensive for a supercar considering a fully loaded out GT-R cost that much initially. Plus, Acura > Nissan imho.

The reliability of Honda with the performance better than M3. A lightly used one would be a good combo.

Either way, I think the car will deliver in looks and performance (on the track).

I hope they do not screw this up, the NSX is a flawless legend.

$110k for an electric supercar? Seems like a good competitor for the tesla model s, considering it costs the same.

Pure vapor ware, it will be like the LFA when it arrives, five years behind and nearly forgotten.

LFA is one of the best sportscar ever built. It is on level of Ferrari F40 and McLaren F1 so as today's Paganis.

We'll see how history feels about that, we clearly see it very differently.

The F40 and F1 did things well beyond their nearest contemporary competitors, the LFA did not do anything impressive.

Did things well but I don't consider it on the same level as F40 or F1 either.

Useless post. What makes your opinion any better than his?

While I personally like the LFA, I don't see how it raised the bar.

Levi is a hopeless Toyota leg humper. They made a handful of N'Ring LFA's and a Viper for a quarter of the price still out lapped it. Nevermind the number of cars for half the price that were quicker in a straight line or had more top end. The F40 and F1 dominated their contemporaries. The LFA did not.

Big if, but if Toyota had given it a proper transmission and updated the interior before releasing it, or just produced it five years earlier, it might have been as impressive as some feel.

If you want to compare a full blown track car to a exotic luxury sport car wouldn't a Paganda Zonda, Enzo, and many other exotic car look more like a joke? You pay 700k to over 1 million dollar for a car that can't even beat a 150k Viper ACR? At least the LF-A is just 2 seconds slower than the Viper, while the Enzo and Paganda is over 13 seconds slower. If the LF-A went on a diet and make the interior similar to a Viper, I have no doubt in my mind it could of beat the Viper's time.

WTF you talking about?


The LFA has sold out, unlike the 918 Spyder, which has only 50% of them ordered (until everybody will get to know that it will get +100 PS and -100 kg). But they too are going to lose money with each car sold.

Is the 918 even out yet? I thought you had to lease the LFA, that you couldn't actually buy one, at least here in the US.
