Isn't the i6 going to be a crossover? Maybe they'll shrink down the i8 as it's due for replacement in 2022-2023. That's a long time away but I assume the ZSX will take time too.

Don't think it really has a hybrid rival right now so if acura can come out with the ZSX first, they can scoop up the small hybrid performance market first.

That's what i've known the i6 to be speculated as since they already have enough sports cars that sit under the i8, although they aren't hybrids or EV's, however the upcoming Z5 coupe/roadster might come with a hybrid powertrain

Isn't BMW coming out with an i8 Spyder? It's size and design looks comparable to the patent designs.

The i8 Spyder should be the same size as the i8 is. Just a chopped top. The Z5 could definitely be the competition if it comes with the hybrid powertrain. Not too sure how much they're expecting to put out though

If it's anything like a true successor to the Supra on Toyota end of this deal and something that sits above the Z4 and comes to life how i'm imagining it, then it won't be a direct competitor but close enough in price, power, and the like.

4C from Alfa Romeo might be the closest to this ZSX

Is the 4C smaller than the NSX in terms of size?

wheelbase is slightly smaller but that's not what's important, what's important is what the 4C offers compared to the NSX and the 4C is a good example of something in the segment a "baby" NSX would be in.

But the 4C lacks any sort of technological comforts. That thing has no power steering, no back-up camera (even though it desperately needs one), and an excuse for a radio that looks like it came from 2002 lol. That being said, I still love the heck out of that thing because it's so raw.

From the sound of it, the 4C's interior doesn't match the exterior at all. I'm sure the ZSX, if it ever goes into production, will have an updated interior wrapped up in a small package.
