Acura, the oldest Japanese luxury brand, it is about as old as me, being born in 1986. Acura's performance was like a heart rate of an athlete, filed with very high ups and very low downs. But what makes Acura a problem for Honda is the low marketability of the brand. I mean Infiniti and Lexus are global manufacturers and try their best to get global recognition, Acura on the other hand, is stuck in North America, and timidly tries to launch itself in China. Nevertheless, Acura had some models with potential to be classics/collectibles.
NSX, is a classic, a collectible and one of the most amazing Japanese cars, ever produced.
The Acura Legend, was a classy, comfortable sedan, but everyone just wanted the coupe.
The integra, was fun, fast and practical, too bad it never seen some rally action.
And it survived for quite a few generations.
Acura Vigor, I'm surprised that this ever had two generations. It was the mean that middle class, middle aged men from suburban areas, used to announce their neighbors, that they are successful. Classic car? You tell me.
90's RL was the successor of the Legend and it looked a bit German, in a good way.
Late 90's RL looked decent, not sure if it will gain classic status.
Like I'm not sure about the 2000 MDX.
The SLX has a slightly bigger chance.
Original TSX will become a classic for sure, just like the second generation, and of course the wagon.
Acura ZDX, it's so rare that it could become a classic, too.
Strange how people didn't wanted this, but went all over the BMW X6.
And obviously, the 2016 NSX will be a collectible, simply because it's called the NSX.
Did I miss anything?
Have your say.
