Honda has confirmed development on the successor to the NSX supercar. Company president Takashi Ito said that development is underway and will likely reenter the supercar segment.
Development on the NSX was nearly complete according to reports, but Honda shelved the project in 2008 due to the economic downturn.
Since pulling the plug on the NSX, other automakers such as Lexus and Nissan have introduced supercars of their own. If Honda produced a GT-R-fighter of its own, it would find plenty of eager consumers waiting.
In the U.S., the NSX wore an Acura badge and was produced between 1990 and 2005. It was powered by an all-aluminum V6 gasoline engine featuring Honda’s Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system.
