About the NSX

Making its original debut in 1990, the New Sportscar eXperimental, or NSX, made quite a splash in the supercar market, rivaling competitors and taking inspiration from modern-day performance cars from Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini. In 2005, the NSX took a hiatus until this year, more than a decade later. Business Insider selected the revamped 2017 NSX as the 2016 Car of the Year, citing its compelling driving experience and the business story behind the automakers that have brought it back to the road.
