Having driven quite a few NSX's they are a great car but boring and have no thrill factor

I would like to see a skinny body C2 do the same run with NSX Please Grin

Not a fair race really, how much more was the NSX to buy when new?

+1

Did you see that state of his gear change when on board the 993?

My dog could have done a better job!

I remember watching all these clips years ago - they did a similar one against the skyline gtr and iirc the supra turbo. What they didn't show were all the other takes where the nsx lost... Rolling Eyes

Even a broken clock is right twice a day...

I'd love an NSX - any car honed by Senna is rather special....and what's with the stereotyping? Dont know

Have you driven an NSX-R, and of so how does it compare?

I drove an NSX a few years ago and it was sensational. Very fast (for the time) and quite amazingly chuckable - far more so than a 993 (I hope I don't get into trouble for that!!). Having said that, I never actually wanted one, whereas a 993 had me lusting for years and years. Each to his own I guess...

1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Thu Feb 16, 2012 12:02 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Have never driven an NSX, have only ever been near one......

I have to confess I really really want one. A red one. Not in place of my 993 you understand, before I too am bummed.......but I think they are ace.

They sound nice and I love the idea of a car I could drive every day and it would literally never go wrong. In fact if I can not get divorced for it I would swap my pain in the ass, expensive to run X5 for one.

Can someone on here with more cash than me buy one so I can go in it? My only worry is all the Japanese cars I have been in are for the averagely heighted.....of which I am not. So I would be gutted to try it and find I didn't fit, thereby dashing another dream.....along with every Ferrari I have sat in. Damn those tiny car designers.

And the downside is? Sounds like a win-win! Mrs

Like a friend of mine who once announced
