No hybrid! Two words: hydrogen or gas!
Jack Howard Sep 22, 2011
Umm a Porsche 918 is a hybrid and whatcha gotta say about that?
Duncan Gibson Sep 21, 2011
If they make the nix into a hatch...
Ethan Amo Sep 21, 2011
The NSX is a supercar…not a hybrid…
Ryan Chamberlain Sep 21, 2011
shame that's a bad thing ???
Brad Wood Sep 21, 2011
As long as it actually performs, then it will be cool. Anything less than 400bhp would be a waste
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
Its the idea of it, first the new Evo and now this. Its like they're making cars less for the driver and more for the enviroment
Zachary Maurer Sep 21, 2011
Porshe panamera hybrid, and porshe 918 concept was a hybrid, is their a problem???
Jonathan Cheek Sep 21, 2011
Yeah someone needs to tell that to Porsche and their kers system that keeps stomping all the gas burners.
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
Its gonna be a powerful Eco friendly car.
Blaise Stevensen Sep 21, 2011
NOOO! No hybrid NSX. Enough is enough!
Chris Penza Sep 21, 2011
Yea sports cars can't be hybrids. It just doesn't work that way
Ryan Bowles Sep 21, 2011
I'd rather them not make it a hybrid that kind of ruins it
No Pistons Sep 21, 2011
I knew Honda would pull this hootnany and ruin the nsx legacy

@Phillip or maybe its because he just wants to make a "green" car to win over celebs and eco-hippies while ignoring the wants of people who might actually buy it
Phillip Fitchew Sep 22, 2011
It's because he understands the ideals and principles of sustainability. Maybe you should follow suit.
Ray Lockhart Sep 21, 2011
So he helped create the nsx and he's ok with making it a hybrid? WTF
Chris Benson Sep 21, 2011
Yea it's his fault. :/
Keenan Casteel Sep 23, 2011
Why wouldn't it be a competitor? Unless it's going to be 20,000 less than the GT-R otherwise it's kinda pointless in my opinion.
Michael Bichay Sep 22, 2011
With Honda trying to make it ecofriendly I doubt it will keep up with the one and ONLY godzilla
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
Michael I'm sure it will be a GT-r competitor the original nsx was built to compete with the skyline GT-rs in the 90's and it smoked them in sales and performance I personally would rather have an old nsx over a new GT-r any day and twice on Sunday
Michael Gallagher Sep 22, 2011
@Keenan, where did you get the idea that it would be competition for GT-R? Lol, yea, Honda make a car that gives the GT-R competition hahaha
Phillip Fitchew Sep 22, 2011
3.0L NA V6. And it was chosen that way for a reason. Adding turbo would likely have destroyed the delicate balance the C30A engine was engineered to create. Not to mention the responsiveness thats afforded by being NA would have been diminished.
Keenan Casteel Sep 22, 2011
Read the article people... I assume it will be a competitor to the GT-R. If so, it's got a lot to live up to!
Jack Howard Sep 22, 2011
That's the old one they have released any photos of the new one
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
Honda NSX in Japan and Acura NSX North America. Both had a V6 I believe. I would l
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
This car i still like with a couple of body mods to add a bit of agretion to it's stealth look.. Other wise best car Honda built lol at least
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
Honda owns Acura enough side.
Hogan Herritage Sep 21, 2011
I'm with Jonathan, it doesn't look like they updated it at all..and isn't the NSX an Acura?
Josh Sutton Sep 21, 2011
So the next one should have 400-500.
Patrick Kennedy Sep 21, 2011
This is the old one...
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011
Did they even bother to update it at all???
Ryan Patrick Clauson Sep 21, 2011
Great looking car, but too me it wasn't much for your money, and you don't see many of them. I feel like they should put a V6 or turbo I4 in it rather than just a natural VTEC
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
You said it. Just beautiful.
Andrew Grimm Sep 21, 2011
Absolutely beautiful. Not as big of a bang for your buck car, but this car is still amazing

Agree with you 100% jon
Jon Patrick Sep 22, 2011
The Honda NSX is one of the most fun cars from the 90s which is still around today... Hard to imagine a better more reliable car...
Michael Gallagher Sep 22, 2011
To back up the ripping on italian supercar, look at used maseratis, they are so cheap. Must be a reason...
Shane Carroll Sep 22, 2011
@Ed ok, I don't usually take up for the imports but a 20 year-old Italian supercar reliable? What are you smoking? When you make it 50 ft down the road, it'll blow up and take $2000 to fix. And how does seeing one constitute reliability?
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
@Ed you are a complete idiot if you think that anything Italian is more reliable than a Japanese car let alone reliable at all the nsx has always been reliable and just cuz you haven't seen them doesn't mean they aren't around stop being so ignorant
Peter O'Sullivan Sep 22, 2011
Well, that one is on 02 plates...
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
Duncan I could be wrong but I believe that the 2006 model was actually built in 2005 like almost any other car these days so 6 years old would be pretty accurate but I could be wrong on that
Josiah Thomas Clements Sep 21, 2011
@Ed yea go spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a lambo or Ferrari. The NSX is a lot less money, is a lot more reliable and still delivers great performance. and oh yea it won't crumble if you hit another car going 5 mph!
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011
@Ed, more of a dumbed down lambo diablo if you ask me. Also, if all cars looked like supercars there would be no supercars
Duncan Gibson Sep 21, 2011

Itay Rozenstein Sep 21, 2011
Amazing car!!! Wish Honda make new s2000
Zachary Maurer Dec 02, 2011
Hogan, may I remind you that this car isn't even around anymore, and this is way before that car you own the gtr
Taylor Greenfield Sep 22, 2011
Anybody can come and comment on this app, rich or poor people. Everybody enjoys watching these cars with the same passion so whether you have a GTR or not, its no excepcion to be on this app
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
People on here probably don't have the old skylines either js
Keaton Smith Sep 22, 2011
People on here probably don't have the new gtr, they're probably taking about old skylines
Jack Howard Sep 22, 2011
People are retarded on this. ITS A 2002 NSX
Dale Fredriks Sep 21, 2011
Noone on here owns a GTR because everyone who does doesn't need to bother with us 'common folk.' I'm guessing most of us are on here to drool over cars we will never be able to buy.
Jesus Guerra Sep 21, 2011
Haha no one on here owns a gtr. If u did u would be driving it instead of being here
Hogan Herritage Sep 21, 2011
Jonathan, your on freaking crack..I own a GTR and the interior in mine is WAY nicer than this piece of crap.
Josh Sutton Sep 21, 2011
Kind of reminds me of the old CL, but I'd guess most Acuras and Hondas would have that feel...
Buddy Robinson Sep 21, 2011
That's amazingly nice for that time. And I'm short, so I want one
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011
Looks great, reminds me of the GTR's interior
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
This looks exactly like my old C5. I like it.
Brad Wood Sep 21, 2011
Anyone over 6'1" can't fit in it tho
Chris Penza Sep 21, 2011
Yeah that's really nicr
Vincent Butler Sep 22, 2011
It's not impressive ok. I guess it's not? Well anyways that's what I do. Race at LA Forrest.
Shane Carroll Sep 22, 2011
@Vincent "out-drive cars with 300-350hp". So, thats either stock, or other hondas. That is by no means impressive
Vincent Butler Sep 22, 2011
I hustle, depending on how much money I have. Sometimes 5-7gs. I race threw Canyons. I learned by driving Toyota STS 200hp car. I go threw a set of tires once a week. With 200hp car. I smash on cars that have 300-350hp I just out drive them.
Vincent Butler Sep 22, 2011
Read mine/you're comment carefully plzs. That was an ignorant/stereotype post. So of course someone has to point that out. The Word "Ricer" as a different meaning to everyone else. Poser you say. I'll tell you how I make money. I Race

Oh god they've managed to make it even uglier!
Michael Gallagher Sep 22, 2011
Is for children. Just my two cents.
Michael Gallagher Sep 22, 2011
Anymore, or is it? Personal opinions just like whatever you consider a ricer. Me? I'm not a fan of Honda and will never own one. I'm a middle class working machine and I like to be somewhat exclusive with my cars (and i am an excellent driver) Honda
Michael Gallagher Sep 22, 2011
Ok... So I was reading some of the comments and it's funny. We all can agree thy honda's are slow and for young beginning drivers. But, I guess they can also be tuned and engine swapped and converted into something fast. But it really isn't a honda
Vincent Butler Sep 22, 2011
See Evans Stereotype. Do all black people do that??? Welllll maybe lol jk. No they don't. Just trying to make a point. I'm kinda buzz atm hahahha
Vincent Butler Sep 22, 2011
That's just being stereotype "Evans". Just like the ghetto black people with there shit Ride, putting fake caps 22's on them with a shit stereo either they Jacked them or bought it at walmart.
Blaire Quattro Sep 22, 2011
Meh it'll fit well if they make another type rr for rallying
Dale Fredriks Sep 21, 2011
That spoiler is just too much. It doesn't quite work with the design.
Eddie Harper Sep 21, 2011
Sick looking car. And it looks fun todeice
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
I've also had a 04 ford focus and free star, 09 yaris and a 97 sunfire gt and 04 jeep wrangler and nothing was as much fun and reliable then my Honda. I'm trying to sell my Freestar just so I can pick up jdm right hand drive civic and swap a K20a.
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
With a Spoon ecu making a total of 220hp. Thing was light as hell so the thing just flew haha had such a blast with that car.
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
Civic that's low to the ground blasting music with stickers all over. But what they dont know is that there are people that appreciate Hondas with a passion. Like me for example. I had a 99 civic hatchback(ek) I did a type r disk conversion and b16a2
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
@ Evan - don't worry man I know what you mean. Spoon, Mugen, and Feels Honda are awesome. Its funny how much people hate. My buddy has a civic with V6 j3.5 making 820hp. And it blows most cars mentioned in this topic. Most people just see the typical
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
@Shane yea agree with u on that one it's like people putting on a superman suit with out the powers it's a joke..
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
@Jonathan yeah, eCarmony was a pun... And as for the "ricer" thing, I'm just sayin' I've see more visually modded Civics than ones with engine work, and "engine work" is not a cold air intake and bumblebee-stuck-in-a-paintcan exhaust
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
Its EHarmony dude haha ur funny man lol.. I respect tunners never said I didn't like em it's how I feel in love withcars in the first place as a kid B).. Of course Eharmony didn't do that lol
Jesus Guerra Sep 21, 2011
Geesh I live in so-cal have a 01 civic with a fart can I feel worthless. But for 2 grand that's a deal plus I don't work lol. This car is alright but the wing??
Spencer Peirce Sep 21, 2011
Well thank you Jonathan for your apparent eCarmony.com dating profile we are all so ecstatic to hear about. I have a lot of respect for Honda, and this is a very attractive car. That being said it has a little too much 'flair.'
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
One more thing lol for Jonathan lol, lots of tunners does do silly things with there rides like hang cute dolls underneath there rear bumber haha xD iknow cuz my buddy is in a car club called JVM addiction lol
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
So yea gay cars over good cars? Umm think u got it back words dude.. Never said this car was gay lol,I just like driving stuff that blows ur doors off lol okkk no more instigating at the end I like all sorts of cars lol
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
And srt entirior and Dino tune and race chiped hemi, that's build to run just over 400 hp.. :) still workin on a super charger later for 125 hp boost, but my car easly takes 175 top speed young man lol
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
Which I worked real hard for I ran that car 152mph on the freeways som times and had rims that was worth 9 grand alone.. It's to bad it's gone now but I know own a second charger wich is a R/T daytona with iboc race suspention
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
No chill out now with the rashial shit man lol.. I'm all about cars alright my major is on master mechanics and exterior automotive design lol, and I didn't start out with a toy civic alright, my first car was dodge charger R/T,
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011
I'm just saying that in 5-10 years these things will be everywhere spraypainted gay colors with exhaust kits. And the spoiler will just rub it in. Nothing wrong with the original car in the picture tho
Luis A Villalpando Sep 21, 2011
Talk about racial comments, for all we know it could be a black dude or a white dude or an Asian. Not all Mexicans are poor or start with Civics, some start out with mustangs and Infinitis, trsut me I know
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
And a dumb Mexican that drives his or her moms civic. Another retarded comment. omg. Haha I just dont understand those comments.
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
I present to you the ricer of the future. Wtf does that suppose to mean? Really. What your definition of "ricer" I honestly think it's a beautiful car. I just love that spoiler
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
Can you kids stop saying the Word "RICER" everyone has their own definition to it. Shits annoying.
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011
@Evan, I will ricer your @$$, and I'll enjoy every minute of it
Hogan Herritage Sep 21, 2011
Bro, this car is gonna look so fly when I put a wide-body kit, and black out everything...anyone ever matte blacked their car with spray paint before?

And Also take back the miugen part lol, still a cute lil to thou lol...if anything an STI shows slot more potential, those r hot..
Josh Sutton Sep 21, 2011
Mugen could do something good with this, starting with a different spoiler.
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
I agree with shane, civics it's a learner car to help u walk before U run the big guns, civics r fun little toys though I'll give them that lol
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
And ps this ain't migen, it's a type R lol...
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
@Evan that spoiler is a little "Lookat me!!"And I always saw Civics and the like as a beginner's car, just something you get before you get something serious
Jonathan Romero Sep 21, 2011
It's the next ricer dude quit fullin ur self ..
Jonathan Harper Sep 21, 2011

I still think it looks like an angry clown with a red nose
Vincent Butler Sep 21, 2011
Hatches are pretty sick. Why can't the type R have rwd, or awd. I'll reserve that car a year b4 it comes out. :0
Spencer Borg Sep 21, 2011
See I like me that kind of body Honda lol the new hatch they made is so lame
Leon Lam Sep 21, 2011
The badge type R sound nice, but the back look really stupid.

we're not talking about houses. this is car talk. SMH.
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
Ed you are only further proving my point that you are ignorant to other people's entitled opinions you should stop bashing people for it and I may not know you but that doesn't mean I can't tell your ignorant based on your comments on here grow up
Michael Palazzo Sep 22, 2011
this whole article is about rice burners, I hope none of em make it.
Payne Hodges Wilson Sep 22, 2011
Ed what we need less of in the states is people who are so ignorant to other people's tastes there is such a thing as personal opinion and you don't need to knock other people for having it
Jorge Martins Sep 21, 2011
They should make anSiR model!
Jesus Guerra Sep 21, 2011
I bet the guys who call thus rice drive worse cars. Stop hating a car lover loves all cars except for hybrids/ electrics(some).
Kenny Hernandez Sep 22, 2011
Interior is very nice though
Luis Daniel Angilello Sep 22, 2011
I'm with Ken, it looks like they took diferent interior parts from other cars and threw them in here
Josh Sutton Sep 22, 2011
Which explains why the hatch isn't coming to the states...
Michael Palazzo Sep 22, 2011
the seats are for minutes & small asians
Michael Palazzo Sep 22, 2011
@ josh, it doesn't even look like enough room with legs.
Ken Naasz Sep 22, 2011
I've never seen such a grab bag of unrelated shapes and sizes in any interior before. Functional I suppose, very Japanese indeed, but good design? No. Reminds me of some crappy boom box with a bunch of flashy gizmos. Utter lack of restraint and sophistication.
Jt Collier Sep 21, 2011
The passenger seat is there solely to display a fire extinguisher in full view, that alone adds about 1500 bhp to the astronomical rear wing boost.
Josh Sutton Sep 21, 2011
So you can drive it if you don't have legs?
