Honda Confirms NSX Roadster


Next-gen NSX coming 2015, convertible to follow in 2017.

The new NSX hybrid is set to launch in 2015 and, according to Autocar, a convertible variant will follow by 2017 at the earliest. The previous NSX came with a targa-style top, and although the carmaker is still undecided whether to opt for a soft or hard top, the new model is expected to be a proper roadster. Sold in North America under the Acura marque and Honda elsewhere, the upcoming coupe will look “almost exactly the same” as the concept, with “at least 95 percent” of its exterior styling being carried over to the production model.

That said, it will be much larger, and the interior will be a lot more extreme than the conservative offering in the Honda NSX concept. The Japanese carmaker recently revealed the next-gen supercar will come with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch and all-wheel drive system, and a three-motor hybrid system driving the front wheels. Honda hopes to unveil the production NSX at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show.
