Contrary to rumors, Acura is not debuting the production NSX at NAIAS. Instead, it’s another iteration of the NSX concept, this time with an interior (shown above). Very LFA-esque.

    Dear Honda, no one cares about your megabucks hypercar that’s now, what… 8-10 years in the making?

    …and maybe 100 people in the world will be able to afford?

    Build an all new RWD cheap sports car that doesn’t have a gutless engine.

    Honda, I want a cheap RWD sports car…. not that.

    Maybe if you all buy FR-Ses and BRZes and Miatas, instead of complaining that Honda does not make a cheap RWD sports car, Honda will see a market for a cheap RWD sports car.

    As for this NSX interior, that shade of red is just going to encourage more tragedies like this to happen:

      How do you know that I don’t own either one of those cars? If I have a Miata or Toyobaru does that make my desire for a similar type of car with a Honda badge somehow more substantial?

        To Honda, definitely.

        Maybe, but it also means to Honda that someone who would have purchased their car has already spent their money, which equals a missed opportunity.

        I have to agree with racer-esq. Honda is all about practicality. A cheap rwd hatch with a manual is not what the general public wants, and so it isn’t what they’re going to build. When they see a market for it, then they’ll build it.

        They missed the mark on the CR-Z (tried to do too many things), but I’ll reserve final judgment on the new NSX until it is released.

      Those are all too expensive. There is no reason they can’t make a FR-S type sports car for under 20K.

        On one hand I disagree, but on the other hand, before it left the market Suzuki was selling a rear wheel drive, independent rear suspension, 5-speed manual Grand Vitara with AC, power locks and power windows standard, at an MSRP starting just under $20,000. Maybe it is possible.

      I race a bootleg 07 Mustang salvaged from a junkyard and cobbled together from lesser mustangs and racing catalogs for about 20 grand.

      Does that count?

        You clearly have the money for a mid-$20s RWD Honda, but when you look at the opportunity cost in terms of projects like the one you describe are you going to spend it on a new Honda?

    It’s amazing people actually get paid money to come up with these interiors.

    And I don’t care how much product placement they do in Iron Man movies and the Avengers. If Tony Stark was rich, he’d have a modified Veyron Super Sport.

    Which tranny – the Acura’s standard 5-speed auto or the Accords CVT? Bwahahahahah!! Yeah, Honda, that’s how low you are falling in the public opinion.

    It’s like they poured volumizing chemicals on an RL interior, and replaced the wood with carbon fiber.

    I see a lot of old NSX in that interior. I approve.

    Disgusting. That color makes me want to poke my eyes out. Excuse me while I throw up.

    Honda tells me the new NSX will be engineered in Ohio. Which makes me proud as a Central Ohioan that O.S.U. graduates will kick ass.
    This interior, however, is not an Ohio product.
    Unless someone used their Grandma’s sofa in Marysville as inspiration.
