Butler added that he plans to keep the 2017 NSX in the Acura showroom alongside his 2003 NSX. While the two vehicles share a common lineage, their juxtaposition also highlights the rate at which performance vehicles have changed in recent years.

The 2017 NSX sports a 3.5-liter V6 engine and hybrid powertrain, which generates 573 horsepower and allows the car to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.1 seconds. The 2003 NSX, which drew power from a 3.2-liter engine generating 290 horsepower, managed a 4.8 second 0-60 time. Noteworthy is the 2003 NSX Oregon license plate is “NSX” signifying the uniqueness of these vehicles in the state.
