Honda NSX Back from the Dead
text size: A- A+
One of the best examples is the Honda NSX. It seems that the Japanese four-wheeled legend has been released from the pits of financial darkness and might be heading back the streets. According to Japanese Nostalgic Car, Honda's president Takashi Ito announced that work on the supercar is being restarted.
This is party-worthy news, but you won't see us jumping, at least not yet. Why is that? The answer is simple and sad. We're not so far away from the Japanese carmaker's last attempt of resurrecting the NSX. A few years ago, the company introduced the HSV-010 project, with the aim of developing a NSX successor. This wasn't all PR words, as the carmaker even presented a racing incarnation of the machine, which was destined for the Japanese Super GT Series (the beast can be seen in the adjacent image).
However, the project was put to sleep, so we can't trust Honda anymore - we'll have to drive it to believe it!
If the project really manages to get the green light, Honda will really have to make huge efforts, as the competition is more than fierce (just see what the Nissan GT-R can do, for example).
