1991 Acura NSX: Past And Future

February 07, 2012


I pulled this image from the 2012 Chicago Auto Show site. According to the site: "Acura used the 1989 Chicago Auto Show to measure reaction to the prototype NS-X exotic sports car. The public loved it and it went on sale in the fall of 1990 as a 1991 model called NSX, minus the hyphen."

Follow the jump for a shot I snapped of the upcoming NSX at the 2012 North American International Auto Show last month in Detroit.


Either auto show attendance by the media has signifcantly increased since 1989 or this car is a huge hit. Whatever the case, this is a plastic prototype and the car on display in Chicago was close to production ready. Let's just hope this machine, when it arrives, offers half the enduring character of the original.
