Acura kills NSX and announces heir
The NSX has received more critical acclaim than any other Acura since its debut in 1991, although it's only managed
to achieve total cumulative global sales of 18,000 unites in 15 years. Regardless, the NSX was a point of pride for
Acura having received accolades such as " the best sports car ever built" from Motor Trend. All good things must come
to an end, and the NSX will meet its maker at the end of the year due to extensive retooling that would have been
necessary to meet strict 2006 emissions and equipment regulations from around the world. While Acura chose not to
release any specifics about the car's replacement, John Mendel, senior vice president of automobile operations stated
the all-new model would be just as groundbreaking as the 1991 NSX.
