*by saying end for supercars, I mean as we know them, as the blisteringly fast and loud machines we know
Jordan Jackson Jul 12, 2012
More like transitioning, hybrids are the beginning of the end, at least for supercars, but josh is right, there will always be ICE's, even if they don't run on gas/petrol (for however you say it)
Oscar Galvan Jul 10, 2012
Hybrid not Electric. People disappoint me at times, the Ferrari F70 will still retain its v12 just with a bit of help. They aren't downgrading more like upgrading
Josh ?hompson Jul 10, 2012
Hybrid isn't synonymous with prius. The F12 Berlinetta uses a kers system technically making it a hybrid. The new NSX uses the same system. They are still fast and loud, but also powerful and efficient. I'm excited to see what comes next. And there will always be ice's don't worry
Tim Preisinger Jul 10, 2012
Even if these are the cars of the future, I will really end up missing the sound of modern day and classic muscle cars and super cars.
Michael Henderson Jul 10, 2012
Oi CarBuzz! Where's the C-X75?
Den Zo Jul 10, 2012
I'm not sure if several thousand nm of torque at any instant could be called boring...
Chris Penza Jul 10, 2012
So the next generation of supercars will be silent and boring?
Trey Reilly Jul 10, 2012
Batteries are heavy...
Sebastian Grey Jul 10, 2012
No they will not.
Russell Jul 10, 2012
What about the BMW Vision

Love that body styling, reminiscent of the Carrera GT.
Zachary Maurer Jul 10, 2012
Ya I like jt right now, he actually has a since of humor unlike most people on trollbuzz
Tyler Ocho-Cinco Jul 10, 2012
Jt with the jokes today. Lol
Chris Penza Jul 10, 2012
This is the only hybrid I approve of
Jt Collier Jul 10, 2012
I agree, over 700 horses in a porche, that's insane 700 in a Porsche however, I can believe
John Jenkins Jul 10, 2012
that is going to be one insane porche
Wyatt Gordon Jul 11, 2012
Its probably quite large in person
Garrett Serrano Jul 10, 2012
Dang that's purty
Zachary Maurer Jul 10, 2012
@michael, it is, I saw it at the Detroit auto show, it's quite the large car actually
Michael Couse Jul 10, 2012
Bet it looks amazing in person
Tobias Mersinger Jul 10, 2012
The hottest car EVER from Porsche! And I love virtually every Porsche...
John Serely Jul 10, 2012
That thing looks great, the wheels are awesome
John Jenkins Jul 10, 2012
didn't expect to see the exhaust there
Nick Schnee Jul 10, 2012
Transparent rims + green brakes = epic win.
Jordan Clegg Jul 10, 2012
Front looks just like mp4-12c which is NOT a bad thing.
boldcars Jul 10, 2012
sick wheels! they look glass almost
Matt Piccolo Jul 10, 2012
Agreed, the wheels on this are sick!
Ghee Buttersnaps Jul 11, 2012
@John Jenkins I'm pretty sure the exhaust exits above the engine on the real thing
John Serely Jul 10, 2012
@mitch the first? No. Not at all haha
mitch powell Jul 10, 2012
this will be the first good looking porsche
John Jenkins Jul 10, 2012
mid engine + side exhaust = first time I've ever seen that
Jordan Clegg Jul 10, 2012
If it actually looks like this, then I will have a new favorite looking car!
Matt Piccolo Jul 10, 2012
This is just amazing

hopefully production rims will be that size
Michael Douglas Jul 11, 2012
Probably like a smart car
Trey Reilly Jul 10, 2012
...on that thought, I wonder what it sounds like?
Trey Reilly Jul 10, 2012
Ha! 3 cylinder super car! The future is now!
Zaire Wilkins Jul 10, 2012
cause its different
Jack Howard Jul 10, 2012
How is this better than a Porsche 918?
Jt Collier Jul 10, 2012
I dig it. It's a bit understated but that's infinity for you. I hope it goes into production with a very close final design
Tobias Mersinger Jul 10, 2012
Wow, I must have missed that, I've never seen this one before... Damn it's stunning!
John Serely Jul 10, 2012
@malchi I disagree, but this is great looking, too
Derek Hedtke Jul 10, 2012
not a fan of the wheels but otherwise it looks good
John Jenkins Jul 10, 2012
looks a bit too futuristic for me
Jackson Michael Jul 10, 2012
It's much smaller than the XJ though
Justin Brest Jul 10, 2012
yup, that was the first thing I thought was the xj220
Malachi Monteiro Jul 10, 2012
This is much better than the 918
Matt White Jul 10, 2012
Looks like the successor to the xj220
Matt Piccolo Jul 10, 2012
I'm liking this a lot! Lines Look very sleek
Zaire Wilkins Jul 14, 2012
this car isnt fat at all
Domi Bsaibes Jul 12, 2012
The hell are u talking about
Matt Greenlee Jul 11, 2012
it looks like an angry fat kid from elementary school. the way his fat encroaches on his mouth when they smile.... you all know what i mean
Shawn Sullivan Jul 10, 2012
Headlights are sick looking very relaxed almost!

I love the sound of a V10 or 12 too but fact is with gas prices and emissions regulations hybrids are the future, not to mention is instant and huge amounts of torque the electric motors and produce
Byakka Hirakawa Jul 11, 2012
Keep the nsx like it was and remake it from that Nobody wants a hybrid nsx Its like that crx hybrid (crz) -_-
Byakka Hirakawa Jul 11, 2012
Ben go away Of all the cars honda has They need to kee
Ben Norton Jul 10, 2012
An LS would kill everything that is NSX
Scott Gracey Jul 10, 2012
Because it would put out more torque and hp than this hybrid 6 would... That was sarcasm incase anyone couldn't tell lol
Chris Penza Jul 10, 2012
Meh. I'll just drop in an ls
Byakka Hirakawa Jul 11, 2012
I like this, but i dont want it to carry the name nsx, you kno? When i look at it, my minds just not saying nsx But its still a good looking car
Wyatt Gordon Jul 11, 2012
Its a good looking car, but it sort of lacks that sense of insanity that supercars are meant to have
Kris C. Lopez Jul 10, 2012
My favorite car here. NSX <3<3<3
Tobias Mersinger Jul 10, 2012
Don't like it at all... Can't put my finger on why, but it just doesn't do it for me.
Kyle Smith Jul 10, 2012
Such a beast, I'm going to start saving my money now in hopes of having enough by the time it comes out.
John Serely Jul 10, 2012
Ehh, it's nice, but this would be my last choice out of all of these
Danny Rodriiguez Jul 10, 2012
@Doug That means serious R&D work
Tim Preisinger Jul 11, 2012
I live in NY, but I'm a huge Wings fan. Still sad to see Lids hang them up...
Zachary Maurer Jul 10, 2012
@jt, really, cool, is he in Michigan still, or r u in a different state, not creeping, just interested where he is...
Jt Collier Jul 10, 2012
My doc was the team doctor for the red wings. As long as you aren't a rangers fan I think we can get along lol.
Zachary Maurer Jul 10, 2012
I got to support my dead things (red wings) in detroit, but im an ohl fan (ontario hockey league,) oh ya, I saw this at the Detroit auto show too
Danyaal Farooq Jul 10, 2012
Saw this thing at the new York auto show..just breathtaking
Kris C. Lopez Jul 10, 2012
I do agree that the new NSX should've been more in line with the original, but we all should know what the name NSX stands for, New Sportscar eXperimental and as the name and history dictates the name should be given to a tech demonstrator/halo car
Devin Babyn Jul 10, 2012
Jt I'm a nucks fan so I have to thank you for taking grandpa Salo off our hands. Hope he don't break a hip lol
Jt Collier Jul 10, 2012
Ech. I'm a bruins and lighting fan but as for the car, I like it but I don't think it should be called the Nsx. It's not an evolution of a previous design but something totally new. I could do with a new grill though
Jv Jul 10, 2012
I was in toronto too, love how this looks along with all the others here.
Stephen Sharp Jul 10, 2012
Same i saw it there too and it looked great!
Matt Piccolo Jul 10, 2012
This is the best one here, I saw this at the toronto auto-show and it looked absolutely amazing!

Kevin SubSoldier Smith Jul 11, 2012
those reflections would make for a bad ass paint job!
Matthew McKernan Jul 10, 2012
This car is a piece of automotive art, it's just amazing.
David Pires-Ihsaan Jul 10, 2012
It was driving around paris..
Sebastian Grey Jul 10, 2012

Matt Greenlee Jul 11, 2012
yea carlos is correct. it would be the f70
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jul 11, 2012
Its official name would be f70. List goes f40, f50, f60 (enzo), next f70
Matthew McKernan Jul 10, 2012
They don't, but since we don't know what it's really going to be called, carbuzz is just calling it the Enzo 2 for now.
Jack Howard Jul 10, 2012
I thought Ferrari never recycled their car names
Jon Huss Jul 10, 2012
I like how this isn't the enzo 2 its a hybrid version of the 599.
Jared Millstead Jul 10, 2012
is it a matte paint?
Zach Pate Jul 10, 2012
Shaylen, it was a joke.
John Jenkins Jul 10, 2012
I agree that would be amazing to see
Nick Schnee Jul 10, 2012
This green looks surprisingly good on the Ferrari.
