    2011 Acura NSX

    Just noticed this rendering from MotorA on the upcoming NSX. A few observations:
    - seems closer to 911 size than GT-R - likely with similarly useful (useless?) rear seats
    - likely close to 911TT weight as well given AWD
    - front mid-engine layout should give good wt. distribution and handling
    - should get fewer comments that it is ugly than GT-R... still Japanese but with some grace to the styling
    - high revving V-10 confirmed - not likely to be a torque-beast

    All in all could be a very interesting sports-GT that much more closely targets the 911 niche - price unknown but I would expect C4S type prices. Sad to see that the NSX history of mid-engine cars will end, but commercial realities and the success of Porsche in dominating the usable sports-GT market must be a factor.

    AUM - perhaps this may be more to your liking than the GT-R?? N-ring time will presumably surface soon.

    Re: 2011 Acura NSX

    Why are all these shopping car makers taking old average sports car names from their range and putting them full of crazy V10s and all the copied german technology they can possibly get their hands on

    Why are they still using the name NSX?? it's not mid-engine anymore and it shows ZERO evolution... the good old NSX was kinda nice, buddy has got one fransformed into a very potent track machine..

    Who will ever buy these things eventhough they are cheaper than the cars they beat, they are still up there in terms of $$$ spend. I'm so confused.

    I for one will not go there.. I buy american until i can afford German

    Looks like a 350Z. The 350Z is a very nice car. One of the best looking cars out there today.

    Re: 2011 Acura NSX

    Agree with Atzporsche. It does not look like the original NSX at all and should not be using the same name.

    Re: 2011 Acura NSX

    Hmm, according to this:

    http://www.motorauthority.com/spy-shots-2011-honda-acura-nsx.html

    Key details:
    - early prototype set a Nurburgring lap time of 7m37s
    - 5.5L V10 with 600hp 433 lb-ft
    - AWD
    - 6-speed double-clutch tranny
    - engine will be able to deactivate half of its cylinders to save fuel and lower emissions
    - rear section of the car supposedly acts as a giant rear diffuser, designed to keep the 1,476kg (3,256lb) supercar glued to the road
    - price will be around the $160K mark

    It'll be as bad as their F1 car.

    Even a bad F1 car may still beat a GT-R....

    ATZ you've changed, you originally posted this link;

    That has got to be one of the best sounding cars still being sold or about to be sold.

    kinda impressive to me.
