The pedigree of the Acura NSX can be traced to the year 1984, when Honda asked Italian custom-shop, Pininfarina, to collaborate on a design that could compete with sports cars from Germany and Italy. A derivative design of the experiment from 1984 went into production in 1990. The stealthy, aluminum-bodied sports car would go on to be celebrated for its novel design and its developer’s ambitious goal of directly competing with Ferrari. The T is the only model available in the United States, while other trims are available in other markets. The model designation indicates that a glass targa top is included.
Owners have reported exceptional reliability considering the reputation generally ascribed to sports cars with many owners reporting relatively trouble-free ownership well over the 100,000-mile mark. Despite its storied history, several missteps by Acura ultimately culminated in the cancelling of the NSX’s production altogether in 2005. Despite some quirks, it was a pivotal model for the Honda subsidiary. The innovative sports car still has a cult following well after the end of its production run.
