2015 Acura NSX to be Produced at New Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio



Acura has announced that the all-new NSX will be produced at Honda’s new Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio.

The production facility will cost the Japanese automaker $70 million and will encompass 184,000 square feet housed inside Honda’s former North American Logistics facility. It will also be in the midst of Honda’s existing R&D and production engineering operations.

The new production facility will be Honda’s third plant in Ohio and is merely a few miles away from Honda R&D Americas, Inc. Ohio Center that is also engineering the supercar for production. Approximately 100 manufacturing associates will be employed at the site while associates from Honda’s engine plant in Anna, Ohio will assemble the NSX’s powertrain.

The automaker also announced today that Honda R&D chief engineer Ted Klaus is leading the global team developing the new NSX while Clement D’Souza, associate chief engineer at Honda of America, is leading the production team for the NSX.

“We have a very clear understanding of the high customer expectations luxury buyers around the world have for a supercar, and our challenge is to exceed them and create new value for the customer,” said Klaus. ”This new Performance Manufacturing Center will be key to this challenge.”

May have found a picture of the facility on Acura Canada.



Not quite sure what I'm looking at.

Would have been cool if they produced it in Japan, like the original NSX. But I guess with it having mainly an American team taking it from idea to reality, production on American soil just had to be it.

With production being somewhat limited and most of the units destined for North America, it just makes sense to to build it in the states. Besides, the components are coming from all over the place.

Makes sense for Acura to produce the NSX outside of Japan, they wanted to introduce Acura to the Japanese domestic market but that doesn't seem to have happened yet. No point in making a car in a country where it won't be sold.

I think what they might be trying to do is make Acura fun again and with the new design concept combined with what we see from vehicles like the new NSX, they could be on track to expand the brand into other markets.

Haven't heard anything about them wanting to expand but if true we're bound to hear about it although some big opportunity for that has already passed, some of the major shows.

Well Acura is planning new vehicles and design. So it wants to expand. Not sure if producing the NSX in America has anything to do with that though.

The NSX could play into it, with performance and innovation since the NSX is just about the best representation of what Acura can really do. There's just about nothing as innovative as it. The RLX is the next step down but I wouldn't even give it a second look.

I could see Acura making a halo sedan to compete with stuff like the 7-series, CT6, etc...
