Anyone been waiting patiently for this thing to finally be released? Certainly had their share of issues getting this to market.

Thats going to be a tough sell in year 3 and 4, as Im sure that like the i8 there is enough Acura purist demand to get on a list and eventually pay 170-180 for the first year or two.

Then year 2-4, they start running into the fact that cars like the 911 Turbo provide more than enough performance with a far more bespoke and refined daily experience for roughly the same price.

I would have bought an i8 if they had been available in reasonable configurations when I was shopping a year ago. They were not and now the dealers are calling with cars left buyer-less after the stock market volatility. I send them a pic of the 991 TTS with the statement "Love my new 991 Turbo S. I thought all the cars were spoken for for years!"

It will die a slow, nasty death like its predecessor. LIke the previous gen, it's going to be way overpriced for what it is. I'd buy a TTS 1st - oh wait....I have one already. LOL

Agree with comments above ,,,,,as much as I love the what Honda do and think the NSX is a great car ,,,,the fact is they have never sold well in the past and always seem to be behind marks like Porsche when it comes to performance and driving pleasure sadly I think it will die a slow death ..........

I was excited for it, but gave up after the last delay. At this price/config I'd rather get a 570.

Agree it certainly has its competition cut out for it. Not my cup of tea personally but like the last one it will certainly be a well balanced car I'm sure.

I hope they get their transmission electronics fixed. According to a recent commercial, when you go up a gear the engine RPMs go up, not down.

I have zero interest in this car but competition is always a good thing. If I were in a 991 TTS I too would look at the McLaren 570 (but only preowned as McLarens depreciate so rapidly) or a preowned 12c.
