Sprint to the clouds with Acura's NSX
Jul 16, 2015 - 2:23 PM - by Acura NSX News


While the NSX spent most of its time at Pikes Peak as the official pace car, it wasn't all work for the latest Japanese sportscar.

Acura installed some 24 cameras along the mountain course as the NSX amde a spirited sprint to the top. Acuras people were quick to note that the Hybrid would not at all come close to its limits, the event was intended as a demonstration.

Just because the NSX wasn't on the edge doesn't mean Acura didn't put on a show. Contrary to that. The rear end breaks loose, sliding subtly through corners, not to mention the twin turbo V6's howling sounds reverberating off Colorado mountain walls.

2 red NSX's spotted out in the wild being bench marked against an Audi R8 and Porsche 911!

Quote:
It appears that Acura is benchmarking the new NSX against some of the world’s finest sports cars.

Photos of the 2016 Acura NSX out in the wild were posted onto the internet, showing the Japanese automaker’s hybrid sports car driving with a Porsche 911 and sitting beside an Audi R8. While the NSX has already been seen at auto shows and even racing up Pikes Peak, this is the first sighting of these production-spec cars on the streets.

What we know about Honda's new mid-engined sportscar
Jun 19, 2015 - 1:08 PM - by mr.smith

Online patent pictures have stoked rumors that Honda will be coming out with a new mid-engined sportscar to compete against the Porsche Cayman and Alfa Romeo 4C. After doing some reading, I thought I would do a little write-up to put together everything that we know about the upcoming sportscar so far.

Honda's new mid-engined sportscar has many connections to the Acura NSX. The two vehicles will share similar proportions. The new sportscar will also make use of some of the technology that is in the NSX. For example, the new sportscar will likely use the NSX's hybrid 4-wheel drive system.

The new mid-engined sportscar will be built alongside the NSX in Honda's Ohio factory. It will slot between the NSX and the turbocharged S660 mini-roadster that is already on sale in Japan. The S660 will likely spawn a more powerful S1000 for European markets (but that's another story). Unlike the NSX which wears the Acura badge, the new sportscar will wear a Honda badge.

Honda's new sportscar will likely receive a mid-mounted 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder VTEC engine from the Civic Type R. That engine will get played with a bit bringing the power from 306 bhp to about 330 bhp. Three electric motors will be used to supplement that power too. Two front axle mounted motors will drive the front wheels through a 9-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. So, after all that total power should stand somewhere around 400 bhp.

The new sportscar will ride on an a bespoke aluminium space frame wrapped in aluminium with carbon fibre reinforced plastic body panels that should keep the weight below 1,400 kg.

Don't expect this new Honda sportscar until 2018 though. It's target price is £60,000.

NSX Hybrid Powertrain to Power Honda S2000 Successor
May 07, 2015 - 3:36 PM - by St.Who


Honda is making moves to compete in even more performance segments. The last S2000 roadster was was given the axe in 2009, but now Honda is considering bringing back the roadster to compete against the likes of the Audi TT, BMW Z4 and Mercedes-Benz SLK. The trio of the NSX, S1000 and S2000 would offer performance vehicles to buyers at all different income levels.

The new S2000 will likely make use of the NSX's hybrid powertrain. A tubrocharged mid mounted engine will send power to the rear wheels. Potential engines are a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder, or even a detuned version of the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder found in the Civic Type R. The front wheels will be powered by two electric motors in a setup that is similar to what we find in the Acura NSX. That would make for an AWD layout that could switch to zero emissions driving for short distances.

The rumor mill also suggests that the top configuration of the S2000 successor would produce over 300 hp. It also will likely use a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

The S2000 successor hasn't received the green light for production yet. It's fate depends on Honda's performance in key markets like the USA and China. If profits are high then Honda can invest in low volume models like the S2000, but if profits aren't high then other projects will likely take higher priority.

Still, the S2000 could hit markets as soon as 2017, or even next year.
