Why are they so expensive? I mean MSRP was 90k when they were brand new but now you could get a Boxter that handles just as well and is just as fast in a strait line for a 1/3rd the cost.
They only made 9,000 NSX's over the 15 year life span. Not 19000Rare Honda.
Add to that the NSX is rare (very rare indeed) only 19000 produced over 15 YEARS. The GT-R has over 5,000 of the MY2008-MY2011 by comparison. There will possilby be more R-35's produced than NSX's if the R-36 takes 5 or more years.
That is exactly the problem I have, the prices on a 2005 NSX is around the same price as a GTR.Because it is an NSX.
Those cars are so damn fun.
*edit: Yes, I realize that was a completely baseless and useless answer. Just pointing out that they hold value well, because people that own them, like them. The secondary market is dictated by the buyers, right? It is only worth what people will pay.
I feel your pain, though... I want to pick up one as well, but the prices are a little steep. And I find myself right back in GT-R territory.
I used worldwide production number for 19000. You are correct on the U.S. number being 9,000.
