They only made these in limited production. In fact I can't recall the last time I saw a NSX. Most people bought these because they didn't want a corvette.

I doubt a Corvette buyer would go with an NSX. More likely compare to a low production Viper or even a Lotus. More unique. There are too many Corvettes...

You do realize that everything you wrote here has absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote.

Actually, the NSX is still being made, as it is still an excellent car. It's a decent car by today's standards, and check this out, but be warned, it may crush your ricer dreams:
It may be lacking a little bit in the power department (try lacking A LOT in the power department), but that doesn't stop it being one of the best handling performance cars around (once again, it's handling is OKAY by today's standards), and with used values getting cheaper, they are easily becoming much more affordable (to get an NSX cheaper than a new Corvette, you need to buy an old junker, and yet the Vette beats it in every single performance aspect you can mention).

Vette buyers could not afford this mid engine car new. You would be in the Viper price range actually.

Vette buyers today can match or exceed Viper pricing. Depends on how you order them.

I know guys with Corvettes and Vipers in the same garage. So that comment is pretty irreverent. Meaning anyone can make a car payment, and others buy cars and have cash. Maybe 1991 comments are relevant for 1991. Anyone buying a new Corvette or late model Viper typically has high discretionary income. Many with these cars I know drive them sparingly to start with. There's usually a nice SUV, or a sedan or 2 for weekday running around. I strongly suspect few daily drove a new 91 NSX solo as well. I knew an owner that also drive a new Jeep Cherokee Limited; kind of an in car to own back then. If you own a new C7, believe me you don't own just one vehicle. You can't judge what people own. The guy driving a little beater may be able to buy any of these cars. But won't buy the thought of driving a huge pot of change and expose it on the roadways. Others see the reward as greater than the risk!

True, I drive a beater daily, because I choose to, not because I cannot afford a better car. Why would anyone take an NSX or similar car everywhere? That is asking for trouble in this insane world.
