the Sky of course brand new, warranty, cool car, lower finance rates on a new car. My insurance quote was quite reasonable also. Always check that dang insurance rate before buying anything.

"1BadSky" license plate
Redline
Black Onyx/Red and black leather interior
3 pedals
6 CD Monsoon with XM
Chrome rims
Vertical door kit (call me tacky but I love 'em)
5-23-06 prelim order
3-7-07 built
3-30-07 home!
11-2-10 still love my car!

What's the NSX going for? If your looking for power and a unique exotic the NSX is the way to go. If you want a fun car to lower the top on go with the SKY. The NSX maint. fees are extremly high as well from what I've read on them so you may want to take that into consideration also.

Might be an unpopular choice around here, but I say NSX...it's going to hold it's value better than a SKY.

Garage
To me they are just too very different cars. Gotta ask yourself what is more important to you...what are your needs or wants with the "new" car? Then go from there. Both are really cool cars and will get you looks. The NSX will hold retail better since it will be a rarer yet highly coveted car in the future. Only time will tell if the Sky will hold its value or go the way of the Miata.

I personally would take a Sky Red Line over a NSX but I would take a very very clean, extra low mileage NSX over a sky.

My dad

My dad was way into the NSX for years - but coudl not find one at a reasonable price - he bought a Sky - I got to drive it a couples times last month.

I saw a super car review on TV some years ago - comparing the NSX to the likes of Ferrari and Lambourghini - the NSX pretty much beat or at least tied all the others for performance and features - but the reviewer said it could not be called a true super car because it was far too comfortable to drive than any of the others and was therefore a luxury car with super car performance. I saw another program where a guy who had alway dreamed of owning a Lambourghini and after getting to drive one for real decided that he should have skipped the drive and kept the illusion - in reality the car was way to harsh an environment to be in and too difficult to operate for any length of time.

The NSX is pretty much a collectors car. The thing was a driver's car. Still worshiped by a large part of the population. Say you buy a Redline for $30,000 or an NSX for $30,000, in 5 years the Sky would be worth $15,000 and the NSX still $30,000.

The used NSX can be a daily driver, good gas milage, reliable as hell, and nothing in the price range handles better (maybe an older Z06?).

I know a guy selling one for $26,000 here in San Diego and so tempted to buy it off him instead of the sky. He warned me a clutch job is needed and will be $3000 at Acura!

Watch out for the NSX insurance, all aluminum body panels are VERY expensive to repair (if you can even find a shop).

They are also underrated, they say top speed is 150 MPH, we had one up to over 180MPH on a deserted freeway in high school, they are no joke.

Send me a Private Message to rate/view your Saturn Dealer on the USA Map.

NO MORE BAD DEALERS TO RATE. Saturn is dead, R.I.P.

Yeah I'd have to say this - if I had 30K and had to make a choice.......

It would be the NSX, hands down.

The NSX is one of the best cars ever made.

Easy choice.

no brainer.

NSXes are definitely a collectors item, and are still one of the hottest RELIABLE supercars out there.
