Question Ferrari Modena, Porsche 996 Turbo or Honda NSX ?

At a price of about US$120 000, would you prefer an Honda NSX, a Ferrari Modena or Porsche 911 Turbo ?
Personnaly, I can't see the advantages of the Honda compared to the Italian and German competitors.

996 turbo for me. in my opinion it looks better, its also faster, and it should be easier to drive. plus if it snows, you won't get stuck on a hill!! try doin that with a MR ferrari.

360 Modena :flash:
I think he meant all the models were around $120k...? $136k isn't that much more.

The NSX is the first one gone- looks good but the performance lacks against the Turbo and 360.

The 360 is nice and if it were a track car I was after I would take it- however if I were to drive it daily- the Porsche is far more civilised- and it has better traction in the wet- it is also luxurious and refined- and the ABS system is the worlds most advanced- if you slide into the gravel while the other side is still on the road- it will brake like it would had it been on the road- definitley a plus

I mean arround US$120 000, I don't know the prices in the USA, here in France a Modena cost 130 000 Ä, that's much more than the NSX which costs 120 000 Ä or the Porsche at 131 000 Ä.
The NSX is old (it is 15 year old) and not as powerfull as the others.

And the image of Honda is nothing compared to Ferrari or Porsche ! Honda makes good cars but that's all.

The 996 (Porsche) for me. Although they are both flawed. They both handle very well but two small criticisms:

1) the 996 Turbo is too easy to drive
2) the 360 Modena is fidgety at the limit

wish i could say i make these comments from personal experience but its from reviews & tv

I'll still take the 911 though

The NSX can't even begin to be on the playing field with the Porsche or Ferrari here...I'd go for the Porsche personally though.
