1991 Acura NSX 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned my NSX for over a year, I was looking for a Z but when I saw the Black Beauty I had to have it, works flawlessly on short or long trips, you have to drive defensively because the car is so low (and trucks so tall) but when I'm in the mood for a rocking good time with plenty of [non-permissible content removed] I go for a drive . I have the 1991 with auto transmission and I would love to add the 2015 (manual) when are they going retail?


Favorite Features

Interior familiarity, had a 90 legend coupe and the controls are the same, seats are comfortable for long drives and it looks awesome!


Suggested Improvements

Nothing that a 2015 won't fix! This should be a favorite but my husband hates that it is so low that he (being 5'11" ) cannot get in and out easily, keeps him out of my car though!

Review

Best irrational decision I ever made. Does very well as a car (fast, handles great, quiet when it should be and sounds incredible above 5000 rpm. But it's not really a car--it's a big trophy. It gets stares and attention wherever I go, particularly from 20-somethings. The other day I parked it at the Porsche dealer, where it was surrounded by cars costing 5 times as much. A couple arrived and made a beeline to the NSX, ogling it and ignoring all the expensive toys nearby. The only problem with it is that it's too nice to drive in traffic or park in parking lots.


Favorite Features

Eargasm @ 5000-8000 RPMs Simple, comfortable and classy interior Beautiful exterior Handles like a big go-kart


Suggested Improvements

Could use a more aggressive sound below 5000 RPMs

Review

I have owned this car for 2 years and never cease to have fun while driving it. It always pleases and never disappoints. Although it was 18 years old when purchased, after only a few maintenance items (suspension, brakes and dealer recommended engine maintenance) and a little TLC, the car runs and drives like new. It is now 20 years old and starts and drives like it came off the showroom floor. The engine has 119,000 miles and never skips a beat, even at the 8000 RPM red line. Incredible!


Favorite Features

It is unbelievably comfortable to drive for long trips. Very unusual for a true sports car.


Suggested Improvements

Aggressive track driving shows this cars only weakness, and that's the brakes. I have owned BMW's that have had much better brakes than this car.

Review

This car has the highest fun factor of any I have owned in 40 years of driving. It's beautiful looks turns heads wherever I go and it is a LOT of fun at the track or on the street. It is amazing that a car nearly 20 years old can compete in every meaningful way with some of the very best of today. The handling is superb, ergonomics excellent, and the sound of that engine revving to 8000+ rpm right behind your head intoxicating! While I may buy additional cars, I can't see myself ever selling my NSX.


Favorite Features

The car is a beautifully balanced package. It is hard to single out one thing, but if I had to, it would be the handling and road feel.


Suggested Improvements

There is no such thing as too much power, so I guess a supercharger would be a nice option. I have already upgraded the springs, brakes, tires and wheels to great benefit.

Review

I sell highline cars for a living and have driven almost EVERY car out there (except for the Lamborghini Murcialago, spelling might be off). This NSX is the best all around car you can buy. Unlike JohnJohn's post of all the girls that look at him, most of my admirers have been men. They have been in the 4yrs- 48yr. range.


Favorite Features

The reliability, handling and design.


Suggested Improvements

Supercharged version from factory. Will save me time of getting it aftermarket. It's a pain ordering parts from vendors such as Comptech, etc.
