Supercar buyers are looking for emotion.
They want sleek looks to go with ridiculous power and track-ready performance.
The NSX delivers on all counts, though the brand can’t claim the cachet of its rivals.
The Audi R8 V-10 is fast and sexy, offers the seductive sound of a V-10, and is also livable like the NSX in daily driving.
The BMW i8 is conceptually similar to the NSX, but it doesn’t approach the Acura’s lofty performance numbers, opting instead for better efficiency.
The Ferrari 488 GTB can’t be touched in terms of reputation, and its driving feel and track-ready handling are tops as well.
The Porsche 911 Turbo doesn’t look much different than other 911s, but it has tons of power, handles the rigors of the track, and is the most refined of Porsche's performance-tuned 911s.
