Report: Honda CEO wants to restart development on next NSX supercar

Honda HSV-10 GT

According to Japan’s Mainichi News, Honda’s president Takashi Ito has announced that the company will be renewing its development on a replacement for the Honda NSX supercar. Ito said that original plans to put the Honda / Acura NSX into production were on hold due to the Lehman Shock (Japanese for Global Financial Crisis) in 2008.

Ito now believes that Honda ‘must answer’ to the Lexus LFA and the Nissan GT-R.

Recent reports suggest that the NSX will come back as a more eco-friendly hybrid sports car that will be powered by a 3.5L V6 making somewhere around 400-hp and Honda’s SH-AWD system.

We’ll have more details for you as we get them. Stay tuned.
