A source said that Honda didnít let go of its plans to build a successor to the NSX and that the project wasnít completely shelved.

This source said that instead, the NSX has adopted a different form such that the flagship two door supercar is more eco friendly and market friendly. Going back to the economic crisis period, one can recall that the V-10-powered NSX concept was axed. It is believed that the new NSX will use a modified Accord platform, and it will be powered by either a 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder unit or a 3.5 liter V6. However, other sources have said that itís likely to feature the 3.5-liter V-6 because of a patent application spied in Japan specifing a V6 powertrain developing upwards of 400hp. It will be paired to a manual transmission and a rear-biased SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system.

The greenlight for production has yet to be given but if approved, expect a launch to come as early as 2014.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
