Well I thought it was a given that I was only referring to car people, but yeah I know what you're saying.

I'm so glad someone else agrees with this. I've never liked that crease in almost every Acura model.

If ever can afford the new NSX, I really like it, I would swap out its Electric engines and its V6 for this 3.4l 500 PS V8 from the HSV.

I'll withhold judgment until the production version is revealed .. Audi was faithful to the R8 concept, we'll see if Acura follows suit. I like the technology, especially if the car's weight is kept in check; a bit bummed that there's no stick offered (at least initially).

I think I'm really a fan of the new NSX. Love the exterior and interior. Don't like the rims, but that is not a big deal, I don't like Ferrari rims either.
If the production car is close to this and performance is on GT-R level, then this car is full of win. All-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steering, NA+Electric. It could turn out being a true eco-supercar. 918 is a hypercar and i8 is barely a supercar with I3 engine.

This thing is the biggest piece of vaporware. Until I can actually buy one, I'm going to continue to ignore it.

This car has been such a carrot to us enthusiasts. Stop releasing these images and concepts and build the fucking car already. You're Honda - you have the resources.

Another vid.



I do have hope in this car, I can't see them f*ck it up. It is their last chance. They cancelled the V10 powered LFA rival, they just have to get this one right, and I believe they will. If the GT86 is any indication, (alot of hype - 3 years, then alot of praises - elected COTY), the same may happen to this NSX. Actually when thinking back, the same hype and praise the LFA and the GT-R got. This must be no different.

I am more opptimistic about this car doing the N-Ring under 7:30 min, than about Alfa bringing out my RWD 3 Series rival, the Giulia sports sedan.

To each of their own, but this has to be my favourite car at this year's NAIAS. The overall style is attractive to me especially that interior. I know it is still just a concept and I hope Acura will keep most of what we see here if they really want this next NSX to be a halo car of the brand which I think they really need one. I am not a fan of these hybrid supercars and I wish they have a v8 or v10 for this car; however, hybrid powertrain seems to be the industry trend for hyper cars. Lets wait and see what the production car turns out to be in the next couple years.
