A Redditor who owns a 2009 Nissan GT-R happened upon a development NSX on his commute. 

Count on meetings like this to happen more often now that the 2017 Acura NSX begins production in Ohio this month. According to Redditor /user/EmpireDude while on his normal commute down Central/S. West Ohio freeways, he happened upon a Casino White development 2017 Acura NSX.

Not only did he spot the NSX but he happened to sidle up to the American made Supercar in his 2009 Nissan GT-R and took a few photos to capture the awesome moment. Check out the photos below and let us know in the comments what your thoughts on these two JDM legends meeting in real life means to you.

Keen eyes will notice that in the second picture the development driver is giving the GT-R owner a thumbs up in recognition. According to EmpireDude, this potentially could be one of the first times these two cars have met out in the wild. While the GT-R alongside the Corvette were chosen as benchmarks in the NSX’s early development, they were later dropped for the likes of the Ferrari 458 and Porsche 911 GT3.

It’s been a long-time coming for both of these cars. The Nissan GT-R admittedly had a shorter gestation period but we as car enthusiasts, have waited on the NSX for years. Did you know both production concepts were introduced around the same time.?

During the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show a production version of the Nissan GT-R made headlines in Japan. Around that time Acura announced plans to resurrect the NSX nameplate. Two years later the 2009 Nissan GT-R made its debut and we had to wait an additional seven years for the NSX.

But with both cars in production, a 90’s Japanese era super car revival is in full swing and it looks like these two companies are getting their grooves back. It won’t be too long before a new NSX owner takes a rolling shot of a GT-R on the road as well and returns the favor.
