You can't do better than this
Source: MSN Autos

...The handling is beyond compare. This car will make you feel one with the road. Heads do turn when you drive this car, even here in car crazy southern California, this seldom happens with a 911 since it seems that you will see one of those everytime you turn around. All in all this is the closest thing you can get to a true exotic in terms of looks and performance, but with the comfort, convenience and reliability of the best cars Japan has to offer. Cons: There is a good deal of talk about premature tire wear, but you can now find a complete set of tires for this car installed for less than...

The Exotic Without the Headache
Source: Edmunds

...Not only was this car the fulfillment of a young man's dream, but it exceeded every expectation; driving, appearance, satisfaction, value (yeah, value in an exotic).
It's fast, and has looks and technology that 15 years later still excels.
Every owner I've ever met has been classy and that says a lot about the type that drives this car. I've had Ferraris and a Porsche, and the NS is the most satisfying...

Perfect used car, buy the 97...
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: 97 is the year to buy -- all the major refinements were made this year absolutely thrilled with mine -- bought used,
didn't have to pay for a warranty, perfect platform to build up (comptech supercharger,
brembo brakes, yotta yotta yotta...) Cons: $/hp ratio is meager Overall: if honda would sack up and beef it up for next-gen,
nsx would regain preeminent world status (a la 1991) there's some rumor that they're thinking about a hybrid (elec/petrol)...
give me a break. drop the enviro-crap, and start delivering cool, gas-guzzling super cars in the super car category...

Eastern Dragon not so Fierce

...Overall: This car is undoubtedly not worth the sticker price.
It is, once again, an attempt by a Japanese automaker who developed its reputation by producing reliable economy cars to create a vehicle that out performs its European competitors...

A modern classic

...Pros: It's a modern classic!......from its styling to its engine all in all.
Its shape is so seductive that I still stare at every other 993s which I come across out on the streets!
It's simply the best looking 911 of all eras. I hope I can keep this one for the rest of my life and I'm only 35........long way to go!
It should last given good care and attention since it's a very well built and engineered sports car.
Love driving it every single time though it's only used once a week or so.
Just a very special and unique sports car! I used to own a '89 911 turbo and a...

You gotta pay to play....

...Pros: I really love the car ! Performance you can enjoy every day of your life. Cons: Tires. You really burn 'em up ..... Overall: 10+...

Dream car

...Edmunds price is ridiculously low. good luck finding a car at that price. I paid mid 50s for a 27mi, 97 NSX-T...

My 1997 NSX-T

...Cons: For being an exotic with it's appearance & it's price it should have more power and be quicker. A moderately modified Chevy Camaro can b eat it. That sucks! Overall: You really have to love this car or I woudn't buy one. Excellent combination by Acura in daily usability and reliabilty. It has two personalities one is comfortable, quiet and easy to drive. The second sticks hard on corners, stops on a dime, accelerates like a banche up to 8000 rpms and has an engine howl like formula one. To bring out the second personality just push all the way down on the pedal to the right!...
