    Well, I guess we've to agree to disagree, car manufacturers "steal" ideas from each other often.

    I've never said anything about the price, if you ask me if the NSX is worth the price, I'd tell you hell no. But the Z06 and the NSX-R are pretty close on the track.

    :D

    That's what I said :). It's common that ideas are stolen, but if I watched as the 2002 NSX was unveiled, my first thoughts would be, that looks remarkably similar to the 1997+ Corvette. Sure, it has differences, and I actually think it looks really good, just not as good as a similar year Corvette by any means.

    And the 1997 NSX was, like you posted, just slightly faster than the 1997 Corvette on the track (although a 0.2 second track speed advantage is not exactly the top priority for most people, because rarely does anyone buy a car like this to race competitively). But of course the later model Corvette's quickly overtook the performance of the NSX, which coincidentally is around the time they had to cut off NSX production.

    This current TSX WAS deisgned overseas i forgot that, but we uglified the car. Remember acura TSX in america is the Honda Accord in Europe. Why did WE have to put on those bland rims and that shield that deflects bullets? I dont get it :)

    Well the thing is AC, i was just using there american design studio as an example to show how there cars have looked since then.

    Yeah, but now your stereotyping a car like that, with something like that... I don't think I could buy one anymore... and I haven't even seen the ad yet.

    By the description of the ad in the article, it sounds offensive. A print ad with a GQ-like model, fully clothed standing next to the car seems like it would be more effective. And far less likely to alienate any other groups of potential buyers. GM can't afford to alienate anybody these days!
