Were you hoping to take a 2016 Acura NSX home when the hybrid supercar leaves Ohio this fall? You may need to get in line.

According to AutoGuide, NSX project chief Ted Klaus says production will be on terms of “demand minus one,” with no plans to add more manpower or shifts to the car’s annual production. No word thus far on how many will leave Marysville per year.

Right now, the NSX is undergoing final validation prior to production, but Acura announced that the exotic’s twin-turbo hybrid V6 system is expected to deliver at least 550 horsepower. As far as price of admission goes, nothing firm has been confirmed, though one insider says the brand is shooting for a target of $150,000.

    Ok so if neither Leno nor Seinfeld wind up buying one... well that would just speak for itself now wouldn't it?

      I walk around with a list of cars either one of them would buy...if it's not on the list, it's not in my garage. :rolleyes:

    Well, I'm number 7 on the wait list at a local dealer in Canada. Of course, the estimated price was a bit of an unpleasant surprise, much higher than what they were aiming for when the first concept showed up 3 years ago. I wonder what that will do to those on the wait list, including me. At least I have the summer to mull it over. The higher than expected price could cut down demand. At least Acura is being realistic and not building too many that may end up languishing in dealer showrooms.

    Designed, engineered, and built in the USA? Looks like what an Acura CRX would look like? Fff..nah.
