Why Did The New Acura NSX Fail?

The second generation NSX released in 2017 is Honda’s hybrid exotic sports car powered by 3.5L twin turbo V6 putting independent power to the rear wheels and two electric motors in the front. Combined they produce 573hp and 476 ft-lbs of torque. The reason why the car failed was due to lack of desire and the interchange parts the car has with other streamline Honda models. one major factor was the dollar per horse power, the NSX MSRP was $160,000 only getting 570hp leading to 280hp per dollar where you can go buy a 2017 Corvette Grand sport with an MSRP of $66,500 that make 460hp giving it a 144hp per dollar value at a 3rd of the cost for the NSX. Most of Honda enthusiasts were disappointed the car was designed and built in the united states making it not a true JDM car. Lastly The new NSX was nothing like the original NSX made in 1991 where the only similarity between the two generations was the V6 engine,. The newer NSX would have done better if it was designed and built in japan keeping the same styling cues from the original NSX letting the nostalgia help dealers sell the cars.
