I think it would be a great race....but, I'd personally take the NSX in a heartbeat...wait, no...half a heartbeat.

I'm not even going to say who I would think would win. Yes it's that obvious. (See name for details)

Arrow NSX, but a close one...

Much as I love Hondas, a 1998+ Porsche 911 is automotive art. Having having had the incredible luck of actually getting to drive one, I can attest to its incredible handling, power, sound, and brakes, and anything and everything else I left out that is so nice about these cars. There would be some days where I would choose the 911.. and if I could choose a 911 C4, sorry, bye bye NSX.

:badass: These smileys are just too cool not to throw one into the mix every once in a while :shocked:

Well, in a race it seems pretty obvious the 911 has the advantage, right? More power and less weight. But, I take the NSX for style.

you would think that the porsche having more power and more weight would win... then again... the nsx was bred on the track... ive seen BM tests where the stock nsx just kicked the shit outta ferraris... there are more factors we have to take into account...

Guys from BM aren't used to shift with right hand , that's why the guy had to look down all the time , that's the reason.... 98+ 911s are too luxurious and heavy IMO , but any 993 would beat the hell out of the NSX... Not to metnion that for a price of a NSX you can get 993 Turbo which eats almost anything out there in any conditions and whatever you compare , top end , acceleration , handling or BRAKING , nothing comes close to porsche brakes...:bandit: ... 911 for me...

"Let me go get my Honda..."

or

"Let me go get my Porsche..."

I think I choose Porsche since in my book it's so much better than a 84,000 Honda...

If we are talking about the Carrera 4...then forget about the NSX...the AWD Porsche would dominate it!

But if it's the Carrera RWD...then it's a bit closer in handling but still goes to the 911.

At least in the Porsche you could "fit" 3 chicks instead of just one in your NSX...so sorry THE 4TH...I have more chicks than you in my 911 Carrera. Hehehe...jk w/ya.

12.9 vs 13.8
nsx type s vs 911

that is what the vid has...

but it's a type s

not a us spec car... but i believe that there is not much of a difference b/n the two...

here is the difference...

from www.nsxprime.com's faq section... about the type s

Japan Only. Luxury/Sporty model; a more refined Type-R. Features: Titunium Shift Knob (like Formula-1), MOMO steering wheel, BBS lightweight aluminum wheels, Recaro full bucket seat, mesh design engine cover (like Type-R), same colored roof as body, 45kg lighter than regular model, harder suspension.

The NSX-S is halfway between the standard NSX and the S.Zero. With the Type S, you get more equipment (more weight) and a milder suspension than the S.Zero.

Sounds good? The catch is, at 10.357 million yen (about $85,000), it's the most expensive NSX Honda ever sold in Japan

Well, strictly by the numbers, 911. But I'd like to see the race, you never know what could happen. I'd like to see the NSX win though
