I dig it. Just don't know if the longer end of the car (compared to the current) is because of a few more cylinders in the engine?

Man, I don't know about extra cylinders......not from honda! but maybe a bigger storage area than the current NSX, back there.

Nice car, but I still doubt it gets a V10 [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-27-2003 01:00

I really like the shorter nose, thats a big style plus for me, I doubt though that translates into a larger engine. Honda seems hell bent on sticking with smaller engines, and I for one am fine with a 3.5-3.7L V6 doing like 350-400HP. If the car weighs in at 3000lbs, it will scream. For Honda to design a larger engine, it would need to have many uses, and I don't see Honda needing a V10, even the V8 is a stretch given Honda current financial situation. besides, I'd love to see Honda outclass Ferarri and Porsche with a engine that basically started its life in a mini van....that would be hilarious

if they use IMA engine that will shock the whole world.. First fuel economy/enviromental friendly/daily driver friendly/ great handlding( if the power weight ratio is good like TypeR)/exotic car sport car. who need V8 when V6 can beat V8. dont imitate but always innovate.

The internet is rampant with rumors, but let me put some logic to some of these rumors or hopes floating around. Acura WILL build a hybrid perfomance car but it will NOT be the NSX. It will more likely be a new model with a limited run per year. The NSX is a true sportscar and needs to have a normal drive train to be compliant with the racing leagues such as SCCA, etc. and if honda wanted to invest in Leman's racing series or whatever they could do it with a normal NSX.
All I'am saying is expect a DNX type car later and a Normal NSX for 05
