Honda Motor’s NSX engineering team organized an event for NSX owners in June 1991. The event was intended to give the owners a chance to understand the true capabilities of their car, and to help them enjoy it safely. Yet, those who had created the NSX wanted to continue refining it. As evidence of that commitment, this event continues today at various venues, including the Suzuka Circuit and Twin Ring Motegi.

The two-day curriculum included lectures by the development staff and guest instructors regarding the car’s basic concept and the most effective means to control it on the road. Participants are even given an opportunity to drive their cars on the track. During the program, the users were given opportunities to speak with the development staff and other users, and to share their opinions. The event proved beneficial to the car creators, since they could see things from the customer’s perspective rather than as trained engineers. The requests and other comments obtained through these programs were reflected in the Type R version of the NSX, released in 1992.

And today the NSX carries forward the initial concept in its original development, as the standard by which all other high-performance sportscars are judged.
