|Honda Motors 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 cars 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 customers
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.
