Yeah, I'm with you. As much as I love my NSX-T Manual, the car I want to drive is generally the NC1 NSX. It feels much more like an occasion to me. I have a Tesla Model Y as my family car and I thought I would to row the gears when it's time for that weekend car but I don't!
I had a 96 and loved it. Sold it years ago to put a down payment on a house. Years later I was in a position to buy another but went with NC1. As much as I would like to think I miss the “analog“ feel of the 96 if I had both in the garage l would take the NC1 out all day every day, it’s hard to go back.
