That may be hard since the NSX was deigned to have the air flow throughout the car's interior (not the cabin). Seems like they'll have to change more than just adding an extras duct or two.

That's true, in the following image it shows what they're doing would mess up most of the air flow. Some people might not even care about it anyways since most will be driving it on the street without any serious track use where aerodynamics will really factor in:

This may deter the aftermarket from coming out with a body kit. R&D may cost too much if they want to retain the NSX airflow.

I don't think it will at all, it won't appeal to everyone but fact is there's a market of people that understand what can be done on the street and how a kit like the above won't impact anything. The only real downside might be increased chances at scraping the body, but that's a small one.

Not sure which aftermarket company made this rendering of the NSX but why did they bolt on that extra piece between the front vent and wheel?

I believe those are canards that are placed for increased aerodynamics. Air flows over them which in turn increases downforce. Still, not fond of that kit to be honest.. I really don't like to see exposed rivets, although there are certain situations where it could work. Just not here in my opinion.

Nice find though !

It's an aero kit made for the average owner like you and me, they don't really need a "good" reason for it, the reason could be as simple as it just looks good and flows with their design objective. Rarely do you see these brands come out with something truly aerodynamic and engineered with that in mind all the way through on a motorsports level.

The wheels look pretty good.. I think if they were to have molded the kit onto the car, it would look pretty nice. Something that looks seamless and smooth.

Those tires look too close to the wheel well for my liking, one tiny bump could send it scraping the inside. Good for track I guess but not for a daily driver. I was under the assumption that body kits were designed to improve performance but I guess that would take too much time and effort from the aftermarket company to do that.

The amount of R&D it would cost to get a full on effective, performance enhancing body kit would cost a ridiculous amount. The car would have to have an extremely tight suspension, or air ride to have the wheel sitting so close and not damage anything
