It seems like the head guys over at Honda can’t make up their minds about the next Acura NSX. The automaker released the Advanced Sports Car Concept earlier this year that was supposed to give us a glimpse of the new supercar. Well shortly after it was revealed Honda decided to go back to the drawing board because the overall design did not get the response that they were looking for. It was still rumored that we would see an actual new Acura NSX at this fall’s Tokyo Motor Show. Well now it looks like that isn’t going to happen either.
Honda’s CEO Takeo Fukui has confirmed that the next generation Acura NSX is being delayed again and that it won’t be making its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show this fall.
Earlier this week Fukui also announced that Honda is delaying the introduction of the Acura brand in Japan until 2010, which may be one of the reasons why the NSX is being delayed. It is now being predicted that we may not see a new NSX until 2011 because the Tokyo Motor Show only happens every two years. The next one after this year will be in 2009, which will still be too early, since Acura will not make an appearance until 2010. Therefore hopefully by 2011 we will finally see what Honda has been working on for quite a while now. Test mules of the NSX have been spotted running laps on the Nurburgring.
