1fastAcura Even if they have to "cut open" one, it's still worth the effort, just have to look at the ROI on it and there's no question about what it will do for them. I bet if you look into it more you'll be surprised at the sort of things car makers do when it comes to R&D.

RedNSX They won't really have to cut open a Tesla anyways, I think their patents are available for others to use. Would be good to use their Ludicrous mode as a benchmark and their electric range is impressive. Of course Acura will change some things to make it their own and improve the car's handling.

NightWing I'm not too sure, I think using products from Tesla, the only full electric vehicle company, would be a great idea to use for research and development. There's always tons to learn, and they do produce impressive numbers in terms of range to performance. It wouldn't hurt at all to include the Tesla as a benchmark vehicle, it can only work out in their benefit

1fastAcura Honda doesn't need to, and they shouldn't, they just need to do what ever is true to the NSX or fits its overall characteristics. Tesla is good for straight line performance but the NSX can excel in other areas more important to it.

FastAndFurious Can't really compared the two since one is a sedan and the NSX is not but, I have to admit that the P100D numbers looks exceptional especially the acceleration time from a dead stop. Maybe Honda will try to hit similar performance and electric range numbers as the Tesla. I can actually see them take apart the Model S and use it for a benchmark car like they did with the Ferrari.

1fastAcura all electric NSX will more than likely be right around the $200k mark. beyond that i'm not sure if they'll have any luck selling it. that will work just as long as it can perform just as well or better than the BMW i8, seeing the lead Acura has here over BMW, they should take advantage of it.

Shawn Gotta see what price is looking like for an all electric NSX. The Tesla P100D with ludicrous mode is starting at roughly $150k. Hitting 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds is pretty impressive. Speeds comparable to a 918 apparently.

RedNSX When the all electric NSx comes out, they'll have to compete with Tesla's new P100D. Are there any competition between the two?

NightWing I'm not too sure about that. Because they didn't win, it gives them more reason to go back, look at the data logs, make changes and compete again.

FastAndFurious I highly doubt that'll happen at this point since the full electric variant didn't win first place. don't think Honda would put too much money into developing a platform that didn't give them results.
