    I mean, this is the best one, but you could always get a regular poor person NSX too. There was one sitting on the showroom floor at NW Acura for a long time.

    That type of behaviour sends the wrong message.

    Do you guys happen to know where the 2nd gen 2017+ NSX owners are getting their vehicles serviced? Is it just at the dealer? Are these cars that special that only a "NSX Specialist" can work on them? TIA!

    Friend at Silverhill has done lots of NSX work. Pretty sure you can request specific techs too.

    I'm sure the people crazy enough to spend $200k on a Honda are crazy enough to not care about the service charges. I'm just happy for these unloved cars that there are crazy people out there willing to give them a home as they are like the poor runt in a pet store. I still think they may have their day in the future when they are sought after by collectors seeing how low the production numbers are.

    I think the biggest struggle for the nsx going forward as a collector car is the battery and availability of replacements in the future. These aren’t off the shelf batteries, and production numbers are low enough where it doesn’t make economic sense to continue producing the batteries. It’ll be expensive to maintain a one off designed wear and tear part, especially when that parts lifespan drastically reduces from not driving the car.

    We’re already seeing the issue with the hybrid hypercars, those owners essentially have unlimited funds and still balk at how much they have to spend to keep the car working.

    I think the idea of "collector cars" is going to change along with the car environment over the next decades.

    Newer NSX seem very capable and designed for all seasons. It has multiple personalities like Amber Heard so should be meant to be driven hard and a lot.

    Based on a quick search, they have already discontinued the Hybrid Battery.

    Curious to hear some elaboration on this. I have been speculating with the slow death of the ICE that we would see a resurgence in the analog gasoline sports cars. It could be a short lived spike though because current generations are less and less interested in cars. So likely to see a spike in values in the next decade as that ban (if it actually happens) takes effect. Then in about 10-15 years the values will plummet again because the people that created that demand are dead, or close to it.

    Pretty much this.

    You can see collector car values go up with the generation, then recede. 60s era muscle cars caught the boomer generation wealth. 90s sports cars went through it. Etc.

    As cars turn into appliances rather than aspirational items, then there will eventually be no generation that was horny over a specific era of cars that was unobtainable to them.

    Must have been superseded by a new part number as there's no way they could leave current owners without replacement parts while the vehicle is still in production.

    The question I am still pondering is how significant spike in prices we might see before it goes back down again. Right now it's the late 90's and becoming the early 00's cars. I was hoping to enjoy a few vehicles over the next decade and then sell for either even or a slight increase in value. Then keep one lower cost to operate ICE car for fun/hobby after 2035 because as we are saying all cars will be appliances at that point.
