Exclamation Acura NSX news thread

Back in Detroit last year, Acura revealed a concept version of the reborn NSX supercar. During that Detroit show, Acura said a revived NSX would come to showrooms within three years.
It looks like we'll get to see the production version a bit sooner than that.

According to Auto Express, a Honda executive at the Sao Paulo Motor Show has confirmed the production version of the new Acura NSX will make its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January.

The Honda executive also revealed the styling of the production NSX will be nearly identical to that of the concept car.

While powertrain details have yet to be released, it's expected the new NSX will be a hybrid, with a direct-injected V-6 paired to a version of Acura's all-wheel-drive system. A dual-clutch transmission will send power to all four wheels with torque vectoring also factored in.

While no formal announcement has been made, a Honda executive has commented that the new NSX will be entered in some form of GT racing, potentially as early as 2014.
The new NSX is being engineered and will be built here in the U.S. The work is being handled by Honda's R&D Americas at a plant in central Ohio.

For more details on Acura's latest NSX, be sure to stay tuned for our Detroit Auto Show coverage.

It better be spectacular.

After all the time; these years of anticipation, wishful thinking, and unfulfilled promises -- it better be good.

If not, this will be Acura's punchline to a very unfunny joke.

They have hyped this car more than than Nissan did the GTR. The GTR raised the performance benchmark for the entire class of super cars. I have a feeling the NSX will not. Even with its slick hybrid technology its just going to be more of what other manufacturers have already done. I love the old NSX but really find it hard to believe that Acura/Honda will be able to capture the purity of the old car. This new one will probably weigh 1000 lbs more than the last.

Will it dethrone the Corvette as the best American sports car? Just bring it.

I am excited to for the new NSX, the NSX was the first Japanese exotic and it will be exciting to see Honda get back in the segment.

But it does need to be a hit, not like the recent Acura stuff.

While I thought the concept looked quite boring at the NYC Auto show earlier this year, I am greatly looking forward to seeing the production NSX.

Perhaps the best time to buy an older one will be right before the new one hits the fan, I mean market.

I hear it's suppose to have a hybrid solution close to the 918's with power to the wheels individually. This will make the GTR's 4wd blush. I'm sure of it.

Only if they keep the weight down and have a savage Launch Control program. GT-R is a heifer

since there's likely going to be nothing like it on the market, it will automatically be best in class.

I better start saving up for one. Maybe I'll be able to afford one ten years from now.
