What makes a car worth waiting for? For some enthusiasts, the pure spectacle of a new, unique vehicle that they might see flying by them one day is worth it. For others, it’s a fun car within their means. For others, it’s the stirring of memories from the past. Whatever your reason, the following five cars just may be worth putting off buying that new car for a little while longer.
1. 2015 Acura NSX
10 years after the last NSX rolled off the assembly line, a new generation is set to debut. The Acura NSX made its name as a tunable, affordable supercar that could keep time with its European brethren, but the new generation is stepping in to a whole new situation. Where the original NSX had a grip on the “affordable supercar” title, the Nissan GT-R and the most recent high-performance variants of the Chevrolet Corvette have provide performance that keeps up with Ferraris and Porsches while keeping the price in the five-figure range. Even so, the NSX promise performance that should be worth the price, with a hybrid powertrain similar to the one to be offered in the Ferrari LaFerrari. Using electric motors for a power boost to the non-drive wheels creates a version of all-wheel drive that will allow for performance-enhancing torque vectoring. Behind this will be a V-6 engine, making for around 480 combined horsepower. This will all be controlled by a twin-clutch seven-speed transmission, and housed under a sleek “Keen Edge” design that will make the NSX stand out in looks as well as substance.
