Acura NSX Sees Prices Soar With Dealer Markups

Dealers are businessmen. When supply and demand are out of whack with the price that the auto company sets, they see that as an opportunity to make some extra cash.

Quote:
The 2017 Acura NSX is currently available for order at dealers nationwide with a starting price of $157,800 (including destination), but it will cost a fair bit more to buy the hybrid supercar from one dealer in New York. An ad has popped up on eBay offering a spot in line to buy the NSX for a cool $10,000.

Details surrounding the spot-holding offer are vague. The ad says the posting is from a "dealer located in NY," but no specific business is named. The listing is out of Poughkeepsie, New York, but the only Acura dealer in the area, Acura of Wappingers Falls, told Leftlane News that it does not work with eBay.
Another dealership, Acura of Wappingers Falls, says that final pricing will be "determined once the vehicle is built based on market value" which means that the price is assuredly going to be above MSRP. Acura hasn't said anything about stepping in to taper such practices.

And they won't step in to stop these practices. Sad but these practices seems pretty common.

@nsxacura are the prices set for your dealership or will you guys raise it depending on the market?

Someone who buys it might still end up being in the clear since some people buy cars as special as the NSX to flip them, so it won't be surprising to see some show up online for a much higher price.

That is also a slimy move. I just am curious who these trolls are. Is this what you turn to once you get really good at buying all the concert tickets and then reselling them to people?

At least it's not the dealers themselves who are price gouging. Unless the NSXs are sold out, people won't be going to them for their deposit spots.

It's been a typical thing in the automotive world and one of the things Ford is requiring of future owners of the new GT.

The first rule makes sense for a certain period of time. Make them sign a contract that says trolls can't flip the car for a certain amount of years.

Yup.

And it can be said that Acura and Ford are sort of in the same boat, both haven't had a supercar for a while and this time around they both have some real successors, successors they should ensure get off to the right start and isn't someones way to get a quick buck. It will weed out some people but at least at the end of the day, the really passionate people will always stick around.

Really passionate, or really rich?
