You may want to search the forums archive at www.nsxprime.com. I've
seen a few pictures of some owners driving their NSXs in the snow!

In general, the NSX is a car designed for high speed track driving.
It's set up for that using Bridgestone or Yokohama tires specifically
designed for the NSX. These tires excel in the dry and are adequate
for rainy weather but you have to be more cautious. You can get
different tires for the weather conditions you plan to drive in but
most NSX owners (including myself) only drive the car when the weather
is nice.

If you're going to drive a car in the snow, it's better to consider a
beater car. You could drive your nice car in the snow but why chance
someone else sliding in to you. Not worth it. I don't like driving my
NSX in the rain since the probability of of an accident is much greater
due to slick conditions. I don't want to risk having the car damaged
so that's why I have a daily driver. If you can only afford one car
and you live in an area with lots of inclement weather, don't consider
an NSX.

Well, I can't watch this thread any more without chipping in.

Although I don't do it regularly, I will happily take my '98 NSX out
in the snow and ice. It has traction control, which is a great help
compared to other RWD cars that don't. It looks weird doing it, and I
sometimes get stares, but there's no reason - in respect of the car's
driveability - not to do it. Whether or not you want to risk some
loony careening into you is an entirely different question, and in
that respect it's utterly irrelevant whether you're driving an NSX or
a Trabant.

Just my $0.02.
