Honda is reportedly working on a “Small NSX.”
Earlier this year Honda took the wraps off the new Acura NSX concept, which was our first look at the successor to the much loved original. Although this wasn’t the first time that Honda made plans for a new NSX. Back in 2008, Honda was working on a new NSX with a V10 engine, but then the financial crisis hit and all plans were shelved. What we didn’t know at the time was that Honda was also reportedly working on a “small NSX.”
Now that the next-generation NSX is back on schedule, there are rumors that Honda is also working on a smaller version, dubbed internally as the “Small NSX.” According to Motor Trend’s sources, the smaller NSX would look like a scaled down version of the larger version that we saw in Detroit this year. It will reportedly also get Acura’s SH-AWD system and a turbocharged direct-injection engine.
If the rumors are true, don’t expect the “Small NSX” to arrive until a year or two after the NSX arrives, which is slated for the 2015 model year. The “Small NSX” would land somewhere in the $50-$60k range.
