Acura is reportedly working on a new convertible version of its upcoming NSX supercar. Honda’s Principal Designer Jun Goto recently confirmed that the convertible is in the beginning stages. “We are looking at the convertible,” Goto stated. “But we have a long way to go with it.”
It hasn’t been decided yet if the NSX convertible will have a hard or soft top, but it’s widely believed that it will not have targa panels like the original NSX. The NSX convertible is expected to arrive around two years after the coupe launches, which means we should see it by 2017. Speaking about the development of the coupe, Goto also revealed that the production version will be very close to the concept. “The production car is larger in every direction than the concept but it looks almost exactly the same. At least 95 percent of the exterior styling will be carried over to the production car.”
The interior on the other hand will be very different than the concept, with the production version getting a much more exciting interior design. We should see the final version in about a year when the NSX coupe will hopefully debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
