    If it looked anything like that, it'd be awesome! :)

    That doesn't look particularly NSX-like... there aren't many throw-backs to the previous model so doesn't look like it has much of the same "DNA", which is a bit of a shame. Does that make any sense? :eek:

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Andrew, it is better than what originally was going to be a front engine V10 car. Wait till January 9, I think it will be a nice surprise, according to my dealer pal.

    A clay model of the new NSX will be at the Detroit show this January. I don't think it will be at the Huston show...

    OK, I'll reserve judgement for now then. :)

    I've heard rumors of a hybrid drivetrain, any info? I'm hoping for a good old combustion engine without all the BS.

    Interesting discussions ongoing on NSX prime for those following the soon to launch NSX2/HSC. Pixs and rumors from dealers who attended a recent unveiling. great info. It will be exciting but also pricey as compared to first generation. More a competiton against the R8 and not Porsches/Ferraris. As an 91 NSX owner, I very much look forward to another long awaited breakthrough from Honda. But doubt very much if the owners can step up to the new MSRP. If the car is a success like the '90 launch, it will sell well above MSRP for the first year due to limited supply if they are all hand built at the dedicated facility as before.

    Now I'm sad, but I'll reserve judgment until I see it/see performance specs.

    This is actually a concept picture from 2003.

    This exact picture was in this month's Modified magazine (January 2012 issue) in the Spinout section. It stated that the next NSX is rumored to be a 400hp all wheel drive vehicle with a v6 in the back and two hybrid electric motors in the front to power the front wheels.

    It sounds interesting :)

    They can call it what they want, but that's not a "new" NSX.

    Long overdue..just wish they can launch this sooner. NSX or not, a breath of fresh air from Acura..

    It will be sooner than 3 years, and for whatever reason these guys did the Gray Car to under promise. According to sources who have seen the Red and Black actual production car it is stunning and will be out sooner than what everyone expects.

    Are you saying it is not new?(Why) or that it is not an NSX?
    It is new, and since it is a lightweight, V6 powered, derivatively styled mid-engine semi-exotic sports car, it would seem to be an NSX.

    I don't much see the resemblance to an R8, other than the number of wheels. Not a bad job, IMHO.

    I see lots...headlights, tail lights, greenhouse shape, glass hatchback (kind of a generic mid-engined supercar thing these days)

    An Acura-ized 458. Not nearly as creative or fore thinking as the original.
