2010 Acura NSX? Dead Like Elvis

December 17, 2008
Here's why time zones suck: when you went to bed last night, all was good in the world (well, all was as you left it). Now you wake up to find out that Honda's cancelled the 2010 Acura NSX that had been out there in prototype form, shutting down GT-Rs and 911s on the Nurburgring with a shatteringly powerful V-10. Now it's tot wie der Alte Elvishoffer.

No more. Honda CEO Takeo Fukui says not only is Honda axing the new NSX supercar before it takes flight, it's also pulling out of a plan to start up the Acura brand in Japan. The failing global economy and all, you know. In other excitement, he says Honda will instead pursue drivetrains that offer "the most realistic path for CO2 reduction at this moment," Britain's Autocar reports. This follows its unceremonious exit from Formula 1 racing.

What next: pray the del Sol's not coming back?
