It has some large shoes to fill.
Honda hasn't built a proper sports car since the first generation of the NSX, which is a terrible thing. Honda and Acura have been teasing some major plans for the upcoming NSX and it's hard not to get excited by them. But a lot of enthusiasts believe that Honda's best performance years have already happened and looking at the original NSX, it's easy to sympathize with that side of the argument. XCAR got behind the wheel of three previous renditions of the NSX to see how good the mid-engined supercar really was.
The original NSX is one of those rare supercars that came so close to perfection, which means the upcoming NSX has extremely large shoes to fill.
