It has some large shoes to fill.

Honda hasn’t built a proper sports car since the firstgeneration of the NSX, which is a terrible thing. Honda and Acura have beenteasing some major plans for the upcoming NSX and it’s hard not to get excitedby them. But a lot of enthusiasts believe that Honda’s best performance years havealready happened and looking at the original NSX, it’s easy to sympathize with that side of theargument. XCAR got behind thewheel of three previous renditions of the NSX to see how good the mid-engined supercarreally was.

The original NSX is one of those rare supercars that came soclose to perfection, which means the upcoming NSX has extremely large shoes tofill.
