|lostcause||For a long time, the NSX was my dream car. I would still love to own one but I actually like the looks and appeal of the Sky more. If I had the money, I'd have one of each but since I don't, I'd rather have a new Sky than a 7 or 8 year old NSX. Even if the initial purchase price is the same, the NSX would have no warranty and the insurance and maintenance would make it MUCH more expensive to own. Because of that, I wouldn't even put them in the same category.|

Im going to agree with the people who say that the NSX is a great car and all things considered is the better choice than a Sky but also agree that you are comparing two totally different automobiles.
Its like saying would you rather have Payton Manning or Manny Ramirez... they cost the same... so which one do I pick? I mean, what sport are you playing? What are trying to accomplish? I don't think Payton could make a play in left field off the monster nor would Manny be willing to put out the effort to read a defense. I think each car does some things fantastic, just are you looking for ... a touchdown or a homerun?

If the 10-year out-the-door amortized costs were identical for NSX's and for Sky's, wouldn't half of us be driving NSX's?
Somebody go buy a 10 year old NSX, put 100000 miles on it, and tell me it is still worth what you paid for it and how much you spent for maintenance, insurance and upkeep.
If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
So to answer your question, if I was rich I would buy the 10 year old NSX for the driving experience. Since I am not rich, I would buy the Sky.

|TOY 4 T||NSX is true Porche eater (from same period), not comparable to Sky in any way. Just hope you never need parts because they are out of sight if you can even find them.|

Those Cars are Hott,.. I prefer the Supra Design to NSX, but only cause I liked Fast And Furious. (stupid reason, I know) Movie cars are fun to own, Heck, I still want to supe up a Delorian!!
But, Im not a mechanic & don't want to learn how to be anytime soon.... Too Busy,.. So, I want something NEW that is in warranty & won't break down anytime soon.

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

The NSX is one of the best cars ever made.

damm that guy needs to step his game up on the rims
anyways... I would take the NSX over the Sky anyday.... thats based on resale value alone.. but if looks could kill... the Sky is americas most wanted! that nsx looks very outdated in that pic!

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 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.

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.
