Skipping The 2017 Acura NSX Waitlist



If you haven’t already put down a deposit for the new NSX then you may need to wait a few years before you can get your hands on one. According to Carscoops, the waiting list has now reached over two years but there may be a way to skip the long line if you’re willing to take the risk.

Someone from New York has posted a sales ad on Craigslist for their spot on the waiting list, claiming to be one of the first in line by putting down a deposit in 2011. Back in 2011, almost nothing was known about the NSX besides the fact that it existed. Its future was up in the air so how did this person manage to put down a deposit? Forum member Gadgetman was only able to put down a deposit mid 2013 after a bit of convincing and even then, the Sales Manager had to put in some effort before getting the General Manager’s approval.

Another oddity is the listing price. The asking price is $156,000, the NSX’s MSRP. No mention of who will be getting the payment. Will the money go to the dealership where the spot has been reserved from or will it go to the seller? One would assume that if you were selling a highly sought after spot on the waiting list, you would try to profit from the sale instead of basically giving it away at MSRP.

As much as we wish the ad to be true, there are just too many unknown variables. What does everyone think?

Odd? Far from it.

This is a spot for the opportunity to own an NSX from the first batch, yet to be configured to formulate an exact figure, a spot acquired since 2011. The person who posted this listing even said:

"the base price has been announced at $156,000 and depending on optional equipment, can be configured up to $205,000".

$156,000 is expected, odd is anything above that. Exactly how can a figure more than that for a vehicle not yet built or spec'd be justified, it can't.

But then the guy is not getting any profit. Seem like he should be selling it for a slight discount at the least.

You'd think the guy would post up the extra cost for his spot. I'm pretty sure he's not gong to give it away for free.

That might have been a good idea to weed out people who aren't serious about getting it, since some will be immediately discouraged from taking any further action.

The NSX concept was introduced in Detroit 4 years ago in 2012, nobody could have put down a deposit before then.

Some people put money down with the dealer in advance of order books opening so when they do open, an order is immediately put through, well ahead of anyone else. So that just shows how early this person took action, well before the masses.

Not true. The person who holds the number one spot on the waitlist at my dealer had put his deposit down way back in 2005.

I'm number seven on the waitlist and I put a deposit down in November 2013.
