When a car goes out of manufacturing, some might imagine that which means it’s completed utterly. That’s not the case, although, relying on the mannequin. Dodge Challenger and Charger manufacturing simply ended, however there are literally thousands of new ones left on seller heaps. Some vehicles nonetheless promote years after their manufacturing ended; Chrysler reported promoting a single 200 sedan in Q2 of 2023 greater than six years after its manufacturing ended.
Automakers are slowly trickling out their ultimate gross sales experiences for 2023, and one of many extra fascinating experiences involves us by the use of Acura. The model reported a 42% improve in gross sales in 2023 due to automobiles just like the Integra and MDX. More curiously, the NSX supercar managed to seek out 5 consumers in 2023, regardless of manufacturing ending in November 2022. That results of 5 gross sales is down over 98% from 2022 when 298 have been offered; of these 5, three have been offered in January 2023, whereas one every have been offered in February and March.
If you missed the possibility to personal one of many 600-horsepower all-wheel-drive hybrid supercars, you’re not solely out of luck. The second-generation NSX at all times was a gradual vendor. Many have been turned off by its badge, $170k+ asking worth and hybrid setup, and due to this many sat unsold at sellers – and a few are apparently nonetheless sitting.
There are a handful of name new 2022 NSX Type S nonetheless sitting at their respective dealerships, as seen by Motor1. An Acura seller in Alhambra, California has a brand new white on pink 2022 NSX Type S that’s on the market at $188,494, and whereas it’s not listed on its website anymore, Tim Smith Acura in Fort Walton Beach, Florida had an orange NSX Type S listed on the market for $349,000. With a markup like that, I can see why it sat for therefore lengthy.
A brand new NSX is likely to be coming. Acura vp Jon Ikeda advised MotorTrend in late 2021 that the corporate does an NSX when it has “something to say,” and again in August 2023 the model launched shadowy teasers of what appears like an electrical supercar idea.
