After being just a rumor in the automotive media, the Japanese based automaker finally decided to officially announce that one of the best ever cars made by the company, the NSX, will hit the production line and could go on sale as early as next year.
Honda’s R&D chief Mibe Toshihiro had confirmed to Autocar.co.uk during an interview that the iconic NSX will finally get a successor, but the vehicle might turn “green” on us because the Japanese official said that the company was ready to start work on the new generation of electric and hybrid cars and suggested that a new sports car would be evaluated as part of the project.
“We are now at a point where we can consider the next generation of electric and hybrid vehicles. President Ito (Honda’s President Takanobu Ito) has already mentioned a new NSX, and we have looked at that in the R&D department. It would be an interesting project – electric or hybrid vehicles can be fun as well as economical. More than that I cannot say”, as Toshihiro told Autocar.
According to the British magazine, the new generation of the Honda NSX might be previewed during the Tokyo Motor Show next month and the vehicle could finally be available for its future customers starting from early 2012.
