Opposed to the original NSX's minimalist 3.0-liter V-6 that launched Honda's revolutionary VTEC variable-valve timing, this new vehicle is rumored to house a honking V-10 that takes up significant real estate in front of the driver. And look at all that dead space between the crankshaft pulley and the front bumper, reminiscent of similarly wasted space in the ultra-swoopy Camaro of the late 1990s.
I'm sure this proposed vehicle from Honda (which might be delayed due to market struggles) will be a track-day dominator, just like the new Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911 twin turbo. But nothing can match the driving joy of a willing dance partner with quick moves and light feet, and I hope a worthier successor to the NSX name makes its way into production as well.--Colin Mathews
