Rumor: North American Acura NSX Launching in 2015, Europe to Follow

Next Evolution Acura NSX Concept

UK website What Car? is reporting the next generation NSX is still on track for a 2015 launch, at least for North America. What Car? states the NSX will initially go on sale in North America next year in 2015, while Europe will see a delayed launch in early 2016.

What Car? also mentions the production NSX will be revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show in November, but this could be a reference to a Honda badged NSX for the Japanese and European markets. There have been rumors that we could see a production Acura NSX as early as January 2014 for a debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Flashback Friday: Perfecting the NSX

Ayrton Senna NSX Prototype

If you consider the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina Xperimental) concept car in 1984 as the starting point of the NSX, it took Honda 6 years to turn their vision into reality. Perfection takes time, but it were those long years of development, testing, and even failures that would help to define the NSX as an engineering icon.
