*Sigh*.
Another interesting or desirable "sport" car offering from Hyundai/Kia... meanwhile Honda/Acura is offering us a consistent soundtrack of crickets (besides CTR).

I see Aston Martin influence as well. If this was a new Prelude or more likely CL-S type Acura I'd be all over it...but since it's a Hyundai, I'm good.

While Honda remains slow and conservative with its new offerings (save for the CTR). I finally picked up an S2000. Thank god Honda offers 10-20 years old (used) cars that I still desire. 😁 Too bad 1st gen. NSXs have gone from a reasonable consideration to unobtainium (for me and the average man) In the last Few years.

Heres to hoping that some decade we get lust-worthy offerings from Acura - both aesthetically and dynamically pleasing. Of course with a Prelude and S2000 successor mixed in there soon after.

While it looks promising, it isn't actually here and an "offering" just yet...

How about the new NSX? Bespoke engine, unique powertrain, attractive exterior, MR layout, doesn't count because it's too expensive?

Not inasmuch too expensive, but too wide, too fast and too...something undefinable. I might drive it and change my mind, but it's just not the old one, for the time being.

Maybe because it doesn't fit the man-maximum/machine-minimum mantra?

Congratulations, S2000LeRoy!



Thanks Nick! With 3 children and adult responsibilities it was a long time coming. I've had it for less than a month but was able to AutoCross it this past weekend and I'm enjoying it.

S2000LeRoy doesn't have the same ring to it nor does it have the double meaning... I'll have to work on that.

I think the G2 NSX is great (from what I've read and seen in videos) - and if in a vacuum. But if it could be lighter, less complicated and less expensive (a manual would be a bonus too) it would be more comparable to the 1st gen and more relevant the to me.

I haven't read up on this Genesis product but it looks like it's a RWD sport coupe in the $70k price range. Honda needs to hurry up with an S2000 successor ($40-55k - cheaper if they go more MX5 market) if they'll actually build one which sounds doubtful as of late. Otherwise surprise us with a platform that can be a SHAWD Prelude ($40-50k) and a CL-S/TLX/ILX or G35/G37 type sport coupe with RWD/SHAWD in the $40-70k range. As others have said there's too huge of a gap between the sport offering of CTR and NSX. If they would only offer midrange sport products they'd almost certainly sell more cars and built both brands perceived excitement and make the more mundane Honda's seem better by association.

NSX can successfully act as a Halo car that we can look up to (includng limited Ed. $200-300k Type R's) - IF and only If - there are also other more attainable sports products below for middle class folks to realistically aspire to own. Not everyone can be a millionaire and not everyone else wants to "settle" for a FWD civic-based car (yes, I know the CTR awesome) with in your face styling.

I realised immediately after posting that S2KLeRoy scans better.

If you wanted to retain the double entendre, you ought to have bought an NSX! There aren't enough Hondas with lewd names.
