I firmly believe that NSX prices need to take a dive because there is no reason anyone should be paying so much for them. Now that they have appreciated too much for anyone to casually put miles on them, the whole “they’re reliable” argument is out the window in my mind. In light of this, I have two questions:

What are better options for the price of a used Acura NSX? That includes speculating prices for future 25 year rule vehicles.

Which would you rather own: NSX, Esprit, or 996 Turbo?

Here’s two NSXes for your immediate use which I thought were relatively “good” values:

1998 Acura NSX T Coupe, Manual, with 19,500 miles for $79,990

1992 Acura NSX with 91,600 miles for $37,500


Personally, what brought this up is the fact that a pristine, late model, low mileage, twin-turbo V8 Lotus Esprit is priced around $55,000 and dropping!

2001 Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo with 9,000 miles for $54,900


Also, I believe that 996 Turbos were free of the IMS issue, and pretty much any issues.

2001 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD 17,300 miles for $47,800
