You know the drill, but I must admit that the interior might be the most revolutionary aspect of it. While the Corvette is pretty accommodating and luxurious (build quality said luxury is clearly lacking, of course) the NSX's interior is mind-blowingly good compared to the spartan disappointments from Porsche, Ferrari, etc. This is a luxury car that can hustle. I truly loved my time with this car.
I will absolutely give you an Interior and Driving impressions.
If you've ever wanted an NSX, buy one. There's little doubt in my mind that you will thank yourself for indulging in this automotive treat.
I generally preach fiscal conservancy to the people I meet in the real world, but I don't have the nerve to ask people what their credit scores are via the Internet. So have fun, get an NSX. Only better option would be a Citation X-11!!!
Absolutely correct, and you can see 928 interior influences in the Z32 and the fourth-gen Supra too. I am thrilled to hear your feedback as an NSX owner and I sincerely thank you for reading @PittsburghAndy
Innnteresting. That also reminds me that I forgot to pop open the headlights for this article. It's unfortunate what a short timeline and brutal heat does to the mind.
Anyway, I had the headlights on elsewhere and they are far shorter in stature than a C4 Corvette, as they don't need to use a standardized sealed-beam headlight. I assume this will really help aerodynamics, so you are really on to something here. 😀
Yeah it would look better visually, but when you see how tiny the transverse mounted engine is, you see why they didn't want any more glass (i.e. its heavy, and the weight is in the wrong place) than necessary.
Really enjoyed this read. I'm a great admirer of automotive design, but know nothing about the technical aspects of it, so it was cool to hear about it from someone with the vocabulary to describe the finer details.
Thank you for the correction! I have taken out the bit about the caliper's construction. I had no idea the 15" wheels were such an integral part of the design, but that totally makes sense after experiencing one! Thank you again @Valvefloat.
Good point. Yes it is a 1992 model, hence the title. I don't claim to know running changes on all the vehicles I cover, so I always pick the year of my subject instead of the year the design was introduced.
Finally getting the time where I can sit down uninterrupted and read through this. Well worth the wait. A masterpiece as always Sajeev. Thank you again for taking the time to craft these pieces.
I certainly remember when these came out and the press called them a poor man's Ferrari and knocked the lack of power and torque but I also remember the praise shoveled on the interior and overall fit and finish.
This one appears well cared for but driven and enjoyed - which is what makes any car super. Not numbers on paper and endless trips to the mechanic.
Glad you enjoyed the NSX Vellum as you have the others, @Land_Ark! I wish I was able to have more time with them when they were new, but at least I was able to enjoy it now...and share it with everyone else.
