    • V10 powerplant will be a 4.5L, smaller than current BMW’s M5 and the upcoming Lexus V10. They also say that it would have a V angle of 95º, similar to F1 engines, and that for that reason the body will have to be wider. It should reach around 120PS/L with max output of 550Hp. Power is said to come to the wheels through a Semi-AT transmission.

    • Platform is said to be a newly developed FR+SH-AWD setup, together with a new suspension design, and inheriting an all aluminium body construction from past-gen NSX.

    • Price would be in line with past-gen NSX (priced around 10 – 12 Million yen), which would be considerably cheaper than Lexus targeted price of 15-20 MYen for their GT-car. Please do not translate those figures into dollars at today’s rates. Car prices in Japan have remained unchanged for really long time despite Yen recent depreciation.

    Yeah I'll believe it when I see it. Even if this does come out, I would bet that it won't be as fun to drive as the NSX was. FR layout with AWD? It sounds more like a GT car rather than a true sports car.

    It looks like a cheap Aston Martin.

    No never had one but my cousins EX boyfriend had a 97 NSX-T.

    It's like a really smooth gocart. The seating and ride are totally unexpected, it feels too luxurious to be a sports car. But then you go around a corner and it feels so light on its feet you wonder how any car can top this is handling. Let me put it this way, if you closed your eyes and somebody told you that you were riding in an Accord, you would believe it...until you step on the gas, go around a corner, or stomp on the brakes. The sound system is top notch as well.

    But the Targa model is heavier and less rigid than the coupe model.

    Sounds like a fun car. People have told me that its performance and handling is similiar to an S2000 but with a little more torque.

    It looks more like a regular car then the old NSX. Thats what use to set it apart. I, personally, like the look of the old one more.

    Well at least now you'd be getting some actual power for its outrageous price tag.

    Wow, that will be quick as fucking hell! It has pretty much the same suspension (tweaked a bit to compensate for the extra weight) as the last one, but much more powerful. So its now a TRUE supercar?

    I don't like the design and if it doesn't come with a proper manual then it sucks even more.

    lol smooth as Accord? The NSX offers a pretty stiff ride...allthough it is suprisingly soft for the oem camber setup...Also there is no powersteering so turning the thing is way harder in practice than an s2000 ...actually takes effort....how do I know? Almost bought one when I traded in My 2nd Gen RX7...got an RX8 instead

    I'd rather buy an old NSX, and do some basic modifications (get it to 400 horsepower, but mostly just bigger wheels and brakes....yeah, you get the idea, no rice or anything taking it really far). Then get it track tuned, and I am a happy happy man (even more so if there is a HOT woman in the passenger seat)
