I don't think it's brand loyalty, more like people prefer German and Italian exotic/performance cars over Japanese brands for the name and prestige. There will always be buyers like that and then there are those who are looking for a vehicle with great performance like the NSX and it'll have the Acura reliability.

Right now, the i8 has a combined output of 362 horsepower and it may get a 60hp boost while the NSX has 560 hp. The updated BMW i8 will be a bit closer in power to the new NSX but not enough to be a threat to it.

|NightWing||I think they were saying the i8 face lift should bring approximately 420hp ?|

We don't know much about the next Nissan GT-R since it has been delayed until at least 2020. The NSx would have been established in the market by then so you can't really compare the two.
Closest I can think of for hybrids is the BMW i8 but the NSX has a beefier engine. Maybe the i8 refresh will be able to stand up against the NSX.

|Shawn||Once they get a look at the 2017 NSX, the 2018 GTR will definitely go through some serious innovation. Inspired at that point not just to be a bit better than it was before, but for the goal of annihilating its competitors, mainly the NSX. That's something to definitely look forward to !|

|1fastAcura||I'm in for seeing that as well, with the current GT-R. But when the next generation GT-R comes online, then things will really heat up. At this point they're just doing some of the typical end-of-production improvements to the current one. So a car that came out in 2009 (GT-R) vs. a 2016 (NSX). Rather see it come more relevant... 2018 GT-R? vs 2017 NSX!|
