As many of you know, the 2017 Acura NSX recently went on sale to rival exotic cars from Ferrari, and Lamborghini, and other established brands. It was met with some success, though many exotic car shoppers felt its asking price — around $200,000, when equipped with popular options — was a bit high for an Acura.
Well, that concern is slowly going away, as used models are starting to hit the market for a lot less than the original sticker price. This 2017 NSX is the best example of that, as it’s the cheapest one on Autotrader: It’s listed for $139,000, and it’s covered just 300 miles since new. That’s effectively a new car with a fairly substantial discount; by comparison, the average asking price on Autotrader for a new NSX is just over $194,000.
And the $139,000 asking price isn’t out of line for the NSX. Several other used models on Autotrader are also in the low-$140,000 range, suggesting the NSX is coming down quickly in price — good news for shoppers who want to take advantage of its excellent performance on the cheap. With this level of depreciation, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new NSX under $100,000 in just a couple of years — and that would be a huge bargain, considering the NSX is gorgeous and raucously fast, with a zero-to-60 time of around three seconds.
Anyway, regardless of future values, current values are edging downwards — and while I still wouldn’t say the $137,000 asking price of this 2017 NSX is "cheap," I’d certainly start to use that word if prices drop much lower, especially compared to rivals with similar performance.
