Fact or Fantasy? NSX Replacement Moving in New Direction?

According to a post on NSX Prime, the designers and engineers for the NSX replacement have taken a new direction with both the styling and layout of the vehicle.

Everything you'll read below is 100% fiction, but you have to admire the imagination of the person(s) who went to all the trouble of putting together the images and "information". There are quite a few digital renderings at the NSX Prime jump, but we've posted a few below.

Read the text below and see what you think.

Quoted from: NSX Prime:

Acura has released teaser photos of the upcoming successor to the legendary NSX. After much debate, Acura designers have finally agreed on the design direction. In attempt to save time and cut cost, a preivous design was revisited.

The short-lived HSC concept is reincarnated after the last design direction for the new NSX became too controversial. This new concept deemed the Acura “New Sports Car” Concept is designed and built around a new platform to incorporate a powerful mid-mounted V-10 engine and a rear-wheel-drive based version of Acura’s exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD™).

The concept’s exterior seems to be a synthesis of the previous HSC and ASCC. Losing the long nose from the ASCC concept, the tail is elongated to hide the new powerful engine beneath. The long tail, mid-engine stance is much more provocative compared to the last long hood design. The cockpit profile is softened compared to the sharp angled roofline apparent on the HSC, giving a more balanced and elegant stance.

The wide and low appearance is very reminiscent of its predecessor, with subtle changes to accommodate the new performance platform. Thin LED illuminated headlights are stretched wide and designed to mimic the headlights found on the first generation NSX. Other styling hints include the large, red rear taillights that have slate-like texture and the original black top color scheme. The aesthetics of the NSC are quite familiar to the Pagani Zonda.

Short overhands with 105.1 inch wheelbase maximize the handling and agility. Slotted carbon ceramic brake discs and eight-piston calipers ensure the stopping power for a powerful machine. Five-spoke forged aluminum alloy racing wheels are wrapped with 245/35ZR19 tires in front and 295/30ZR20 tires in the rear. The wheels are brimmed with a deep dish lip that accentuates the aggressive stance. The body is constructed from aluminum and carbon fiber keeping the curb weight as low as possible. This new coupe weighs in at 1350 kg, which will allow it to be as nimble as ever.

Two versions are going in production: one will be a GT and the other will be a full-fledged super car. The GT version will receive a 3.7 liter high-revving V-6 that will produce in upwards of 380 hp. The base model will also feature a modest trunk and will have the option of having the SH-AWD™ for every day driving. The premium model will dawn the “NSC-R” moniker. It loses the trunk, but will include a V-10 engine with over 500 hp, SH-AWD™, race tuned suspension and extensive weight savings for shear performance.

The base GT expected cost will be in the $80,000 area whereas the NSC-R counterpart will be well over the $100,000 mark. Only the NSC-R will receive the F16 black top, extra air inlets on the cowl to provide more air flow to the V-10 engine and will have a limited production of roughly 1000 units per year.

Acura New Sports Car Concept dimensions:

Width: 76.3 in
Length: 170.3 in
Height: 45.4 in
Wheelbase: 105.1 in
Tires:
Front: 245/35R19
Rear: 295/30R20
