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.

I'm hoping with the low demand and less than super stellar press/online reviews.....that used prices will be below 100k sooner than later....

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.
