    From now on I'm gonna pray to the Car God in every spare moment I get that that isn't the new NSX. Just please.

    The mid-engined layout of the the previous NSX has gone though, replaced by a front-mid positioned unit for better weight distribution. This setup has also allowed Honda to squeeze two rear seats into the NSX, widening its appeal.
    While I understand they want to 'widen its appeal', they totally lost the spirit of the original car. "Hey, let's make a front-engined 5-seater as the next Ferrari supercar to replace the Enzo Ferrari..."

    looks a lot like the LF-A.
    This and the LF-A, design wise, both look like they could have came out in the 90's for the most part. I'm uninspired.

    Is just a test mule for the engine and drivetrain from what I've heard, hopefully the new NSX won't look like that at all. Mid-engine is only a dream right now, most likely it won't happen.

    Hopefully... the Accord-on-steroids looks doesn't do anything for me.

    If it's front engined, don't call it an NSX.

    I have to agree on that one... or if it weighs more than 3000lbs for that matter. Keep doing whatever you're doing but give it a different name.

    I agree too. I don't think it looks bad, but its not an NSX. I'm happy with Honda making a new sporty car, but come on now. Call it a Prelude or something.

    It needs a manual transmission, low weight and good looks, then Honda can do whatever else they like and it'll be fine. Sure call it an NSX

    NSX name + Front (mid) Engine + 4 seats (2+2 or whatever) = a 3 part recipe for making fail-sauce.

    Sure it'll be a fine car, but one with no lineage, Honda/Acura badge aside, to the NSX.

    So now the S2000-based mule has been replaced with the actual car.

    I hate the stacked exhausts though.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
