Acura will issue recalls for nearly 1,000 NSX cars, the company announced Saturday, because a pipe connecting the vehicle’s two fuel tanks was installed incorrectly. That flaw could increase the risk of fire, Acura said, though no fires have been reported.

The recall affects 967 NSX cars from the 2017 and 2018 model years. Acura said that they will try to reach affected owners by phone, and will replace the fuel tanks to resolve the issue.

Acura also announced Saturday it will also recall 793 NSX cars from 2017 to replace the center rear brake light. Acura’s explains how the light could cause a cascading series of failures:

A short circuit may occur in the center high mount brake light, causing a blown fuse and deactivation of all brake lights. When this condition occurs, warning lights illuminate on the dashboard, and the engine will not restart after the ignition is turned off.
While not many people will be affected by these recalls, you probably have a recall that needs fixed on your car, so this is a good reminder to check. Don’t be a bum! Get your recalls fixed. Go to NHTSA’s website to find out if you have any outstanding.

There was a $30k incentive for 2017 models. I believe there is still a $20k incentive for left over 2018 models.

The original Acura NSX was unequivocally a really good car when it debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989. This was an incredibly advanced car for its time, featuring an aluminum monocoque, titanium engine components, and super-advanced VTEC variable valve timing. It was a car that punched well above its weight class, making Ferrari sit up and head back to the drawing board. This car had an immense impact on the automotive landscape, and still makes my pulse quicken thirty years later.

To celebrate its birthday, Acura put out a ton of photos and fun facts about the original car today. Hereís some of what you can learn from that:
  • The original NSX began development in 1985 after Honda returned to Formula One.
  • The Honda R&D engineers began their research on mid-ship sports cars by building a mid-engine Honda City.
  • The NS-X Concept was smaller than the production car eventually would be, featuring a shorter wheelbase and shorter overhangs.
  • The Concept also featured an SOHC V6 engine lifted straight from the Legend sedan.
  • Honda president Tadashi Kume pushed for VTEC to be added to the V6, which made for wider cylinder heads, necessitating a longer wheelbase.
  • NSX was not intended to be the name for the production specification car, but the success of the concept gave the name momentum and it stuck.

Below are a smattering of photographs from NSX history, including a behind-the-scenes look at the 1990 press test event (Jalopnik was not invited) held at Laguna Seca.

There are also a bunch of original sketches, photos of the conceptís reception at the Chicago Auto Show, and a modern-day shoot between the original model and the lightly-facelifted-for-2019 NSX.

Wow, the rear overhang comparison is crazy. It's nice and tidy on the 2G.

The NSX grew on me really quickly and has become one of my favorite looking cars out today.

Best looking car of the 90's. It's timeless. This new NSX will probably not look good in 10 years.

Sales may be down but the NSX still has plenty of life left.

It was a big deal when the Acura NSX returned to market in late 2015 as a 2016 model following a nearly decade-long absence. The first generation NSX was sold for an impressive 17 years and went through a number of updates including a 2002 model year facelift. The second-generation model itself received some updates for 2019, including some new exterior colors, such as Thermal Orange, and improved handling characteristics.

However, its 2018 sales were not so great with only 170 units sold. The year prior saw 581 leave dealerships lots. In 2016 it was 269 units total. Could the NSX be in trouble? Is the hybrid supercar excitement gone? Not according to Acura.

We spoke to Acura PR Manager Matt Sloustcher and he made it quite clear: "We have no plans to discontinue the NSX.” Furthermore, "the NSX nameplate is used to represent our (Acura’s) brand ideals. If you view sales numbers in isolation you can make all kinds of assumptions,” he said. "In fact, NSX is in ads for our other models. Versions (of ads) with NSX score higher in terms of emotion and breakthrough.”

In other words, it continues to be the ideal halo car that best expresses Acura’s dedication to ‘Precision Crafted Performance.’ Given Acura’s stated committed to the NSX, what about future updates? A targa variant, perhaps? "There are always proposals,” Sloustcher added. "We’re a company of enthusiasts and options are always on the table.”

When asked if a non-hybrid street-legal variant is possible, like the NSX GT3 rear-wheel-drive racecar, we were told that "a lot has been considered. We went with the hybrid setup because it’s the best technology for a supercar. For example, if we didn’t do electric torque vectoring at the front axle then performance would be very different.”

But surely there’ll be more performance enhancements with the current 3.5-liter twin-turbo, dual-electric motor powertrain, right? What about an NSX Type R? Although Sloustcher could not get into specifics, he reiterated that the Type S nameplate is back for Acura in general and the brand is "always looking at options.” Above all, Acura remains committed to the NSX for the foreseeable future.

I heard that the nsx type r will be RWD with the front motors removed. The engine will be boosted to 600hp the combined output should be around 650hp while being may be 200lb lighter.

The NSX-R should be here somewhere around 2027.

hahaha I think we had this discussion before but it comes down to when you think the 2g NSX was first developed. Was it the 2003 HSC concept, or the HSV-010 mule, or was it the 2012 NSX concept?

The successor to the 1G NSX. Whatever one wants to call it : 2003 HSC concept, or the HSV-010 mule, or was it the 2012 NSX concept.

Haha yea. If it's the 2003 HSC concept, then ya, its 13 years between that concept debut and the 2G NSX production model being on the road. If it's the 2012 NSX concept, it's a lot better, in about 4 years.

In terms of engineering the 2012 concept is nothing like the final product. They had to completely redo the entire rear portion of the car since they decided to go from a J-Series transverse layout to a longitudinally mounted race motor partially built by Cosworth. They did this almost at the last minute which is why the car was delayed.

P.S. A lot of you knew this a while ago but just in case anyone was wondering

Hey man I got it back in February this year. Weather is finally getting better now but I haven't driven it much yet as I'm still wrapping it at the moment. Hopefully it will be done in a week or so!

Would be nice to have a NA2 NSX-R in my garage! I agree with the article that with a set of Sport Cup 2's, the NA2 NSX-R might just be as fast, if not faster, than the FK8 also with those tires.
