Pros

Handling, LOOKS, handling, quality, handling, speed, handling, driveability.  

Cons

Interior space is limited.  It is a very low riding car, so visibility in traffic can be a bit of a challenge and speed bumps need to be avoided like vampires in a blood bank.

One Of The Best Cars Ever — This is simply one of the best cars ever made. It is a no-holds-barred supercar, but very driveable day-to-day. The handling is absolutely telepathic. Think it and the car does it. The 1991 model was the first--and lightest--NSX and it shows. There is no power steering because it simply isn't needed in a car this light. There are not enough superlatives to describe what a fabulous, head-turning ride this is. Interior space is tight for anyone over 6 feet, but it is superbly appionted with typical Acura attention to detail and quality. Acceleration is good and the sound of the transverse mounted V-6 right behind your head winding up to over 8000 RPM is a symphony that will keep you from even turning on the sound system. The car is amazingly easy to maintain, gets good mileage (26 MPG highway) and is quiet and comfortable enough to be a daily commuter. Recommended modifications are bigger wheels/tires, aftermarket brake rotors and lines, progressive (and lower) springs. The car benefits from some additional power and can easily handle a supercharger. Connecting rods are made of titanium for example. There is a cult following of this car even though production stopped in 2005. They hold their value well due to limited production and high quality. If you get the chance--buy one!

The Most Reliable Exotic Car Period! — This is Honda's/Acura's flagship model, while this car has been getting slammed reviews by people who like to magazine race, I would have to say drive one before making your final conclusion. The balance of this car is what makes it so amazing. The looks of this car has changed very minimally during the years of production but remember that this car was created in 1991 and it was way ahead of its time. The looks of a 1991 car can still hold its own in todays modern world. It may lack horsepower in todays standards however the power to weight ratio still makes this car relatively fast. The engine is a pure masterpiece as you take it all the way up to a dizzying 8000 rpm redline the engine sings with a deep growl that just brings a smile to yo0ur face.There is no car that feels like an NSX, the driving experience is just pure bliss and with Honda reliability you can rest assured that this exotic will live well over 200k miles of driving pleasure. Mine is at 110,000 miles at the moment and it still ticking like the first day I bought it. Sure its no new Ferrari in todays standards, but it definitely ranks with the rest of the Ferrari F355's, just cheaper to own and maintain.

Na — Drooled over it back in 1991. Finally bought one and haven't looked back! She gets plenty of looks, and it's nice to not see another one for weeks at a time! I'd love to buy another one so that I could track this one.

Childhood Dream Car — I was 13 when this car hit the US market, and I remember it beating a number of big-name competitors; Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette, Lotus... The NSX changed how 'supercars' were built and sold in the American market. 23 years later, this car still looks fantastic. The performance in this car isn't up to spec with recent supercars, and in the straight line can be challenged by many 2013 family sedans, but there is something beautifully simple about the '91 NSX. Mine is a manual, with manual steering, and zero modifications.

My Review As I See It — no dislikes a well built machine all around, few that I would say that about looking at all aspects of its purpose, about 300hp v6 in 1991 factory car ,not bad, vvt engine not just throw a turbo or two on it ,well thought out car

Pros

One of the cleanest 1991s out there (no one believes its a 91)

Cons

Parking. No power steering, therefore a headache in parallel parking sitations.

Most Reliable Sports Car Ever — For a car with track ability, it really makes no sense how capable it is in the everyday driving situation. One of the greatest pieces of history out there. Everything about it makes you want to get in and drive it. Reliability is also that of a small size sedan. Honda really created a miracles with this beast.

Still Run Great — performance- great handling, OK straight line speed Build Qual - Solid, Honda reliability Appearance - Still get attention CO- 25mpg+ maintenance is $$ but you dont have to do much. just standard oil change timing belt . Fun factor - its fun. but with Tanabe springs and Koni shocks it is a rougher ride.

Nsx — This is my all original 1991 Acura NSX. It was tabbed the Ferrari-fighter back then by Car and Driver magazine. It is blazingly fast, I do have a GReddy exhaust system and Antera Wheels. Those are the only modifications that have done to the car. It is all original and has only 33k pampered miles.
