Report: A baby Acura NSX might actually happen and take form as a Honda

Some new news is buzzing in regarding Honda and Acura with the possibility that Honda could be producing a baby Acura NSX for its own portfolio.

Honda’s been kicking their efforts into high gear recently after realizing their brand is in need of a little chutzpah, on top of making competitive mainstream cars. As a result, Motoring insists that there’s a strong possibility for a possible baby-Acura NSX on its way.

According to the report, this new model will sit below the NSX as a way to provide a new halo car for Honda, similarly to how the S2000 was the automaker’s sole sports car at the time.

The new baby NSX is to include a hybridized Super Handling All-Wheel Drive setup, similarly to the NSX, though power should be supplied by the latest 2.0L turbocharged four-banger, in place of the larger NSX’s twin-turbo V6. The smaller model could also gain four-wheel steering.

Overall, the idea here is for Honda to once again grab the attention of driving enthusiasts since Acura gains a halo car with the NSX. Though in markets abroad, the NSX is badged as a Honda and doing that here is a rather big social no-no.
