Honda stopped production of the NSX supercar back in 2005. And ever since then there were lots of rumors about a successor for the famous car. But now Honda CEO made it official: "I feel that we need to meet the calls from the public asking (for a successor)." However, do not expect to see a production version before 2015.

After the NSX was officially dropped, the only car that had some connection with it was the HSV revealed last year and considered a race-car successor to the NSX.

As for the future sports car there are lots of rumors: first of them said that it will be powered by a 4.5 liter high-rev V10 engine producing around 550 HP. That is actually not the case as Acura has recently patented a new V6 engine that will deliver up to 400 HP, making it a more ideal choice for the sports car once it is coupled to a combination of electric motors. So, the 3,5 liter V6 offered in a supercharged version remains the strongest possibility.

that is a photo of the HSC. So sad (but not unexpected) to see the reaction is "Ferrari knockoff". The HSC design predates the Ferrari 458 development by an age in a half.

Of course an increasingly impotent Honda canned what was supposed to have been that concept design with a V10 engine some 7 years ago.

Today, this company cant even get the Civic right anymore. Personally, I *pray* that they let the legendary NSX name rest in peace. The current crop of clowns running Honda have no clue what to do with that brand and would destroy it.

couldn’t think of a better way to launch the brand there than with this car.

I wonder if the car will branded an Acura in Japan as well since the car’s planned arrival comes near the Japanese Acura launch time.
