I like the Esprit more, even though I know the NSX has held up a lot better design wise and mechanically over time.

Can't go wrong with either car.

If it was a '97 NSX-T I would take it over the Esprit.

Love the NSX, but the Esprit simply because honda fanboys killed my image of honda.
the Turbo SE with Lotus's aftermarket suspension upgrades is pure sex.



I'm currently researching for the $20-$30,000 supercar market - I've got it narrowed down to NSX, Esprit S4s, 308/328, 993 Carrera and 930 Turbo.

930 Turbo
My dad had a grey market 198x (can’t remember the exact year off hand) 930 turbo. That thing nearly killed him a handful of times. The back end would come around on you so fast and once you realized it, it was already too late. However, he said it was one of the best cars he owned until it caught fire while on track.

My friend has a gray market 930 with the 11" wider rear fenders. He's converting to rear coilovers and replacing the motor with an LS1.

START


da crew

my SI, MR-2 Turbo w/JDM swap, Shelby Daytona/Turbo MOPAR that runs 11s, VDub dropped to the limits of streetability.


bye bye motor.


chop the top - seriously.


I think he took 2 inches off

custom fiberglass intake ducts


full cage




water pump setup





final goal is 2000 lbs dry, 500 whp.

All we did was help pull the motor, the rest has been all his custom work with the help of specialists here and there.

It takes a man with a hairy chest and nomex-coated balls to handle a torsion bar suspension 911.
As an AMA pro rider (79-89 and team owner from 85-92) racing against the greats like Kenny Roberts, Freddy Spencer, and Eddie Lawson, qualified and raced against Roger De Coster in the International Six Days Enduro, as well as two years racing Outlaw (sprint cars). He said almost the same thing or just not afraid to die.

He's converting to rear coilovers
I want to see a pic of this.
Edit: I should say I’m more curious if he is building something custom or buying a kit?
