Acura News: Rumorpile: Is There A Small NSX In The Works?

According to new report from Motor Trend, Honda is working a smaller, less expensive NSX.

Before the sky fell in 2008, Honda was working on two new NSX models. The first was a front-engine V10 model, while the second model was a smaller version of the NSX, dubbed internally as "Small NSX". When the collapse happened, the two projects were scapped.

Now with the expected return of the NSX utilizing a hybrid V6 and SH-AWD system, the "Small NSX" has reportedly made a comeback.

Sources say the "Small NSX" will likely have SH-AWD system and other bits from the NSX to help to help recoup development costs. Power could be either the 3.5L V6, 2.4L four-cylinder, or 2.0L four-cylinder.

The "Small NSX" is expected to arrive in 2017 with a price-tag around $50,000 to $60,000.

      Pebble Beach could mark the debut of a nearly production-ready version of the Acura Precision concept. The concept debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and previewed Acura's Precision Crafted Performance design theme first seen in production on the 2019 Acura RDX.  While there are (hopeful?) rumors that the 4-door coupe will wear the name Legend, there is not enough evidence to support them. What that means for Acura's aging RLX sedan is anyone's guess. 
      Also coming is an updated Acura TLX with a Type-S version, a new Acura MDX, and rumor has it even the ZDX may be making a return.  All of these could debut over the next 12 to 18 months, but Pebble Beach is in August, so we'll just have to sit tight until then.
