Same question I would like to know. Article suggests that they are going to do so. Would be the first smart thing they have done in a very LONG time.

Honda, amazingly, revives the NSX, unveiling a Sports Modulo edition of its classic midengine V6 coupe with genuine aftermarket parts.

And it's a pre-'02 update NSX ('91-'01 body style) with '02+ rims and aftermarket spoiler.

Looks like an updated Type S (which is like the Zanardi sold here).

Honda just loves to disappoint their fans. No way, that is not a "revival" of the NSX at all. That is a misleading statement in the article. It is just a bunch of new parts for the OLD NSX. Sad that is the best Honda can offer right now.

Terrible . Looks like Honda attempted to make the CR-Z fly.

Toyota, which put a massive effort into last year's show, promises another GRMN-tuned iQ special and will unveil the TES Concept T-Sports, an intriguing lightweight, compact, rear-drive sports car project
I get the feeling that this is the sub FT-86 car that Hiromu Naruse was developing. The compact rwd hatch.

I thought the same thing, but as the OP says, its a Miata type of concept.









Not what I would call attractive....at all.
