Lovers of sports cars have been clamoring at the opportunity to own the second-generation Acura NSX, ever since Honda’s luxury brand previewed the sleek new machine at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.
The second-generation NSX will feature a twin-turbocharged 75-degree DOHC 3.3-liter V6 engine combined with an electric motor and nine-speed dual-clutch transmission, which will work in unison to produce more than 550 horsepower.
The only catch for some people is the MSRP of $150,000.
Luckily for them, John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda, may or may not have leaked information about a smaller version of the Acura NSX, the ‘Baby NSX’, which would presumably come at a lower price.
“I can’t tell you anything about the ‘baby NSX,’” Mendel said to AutoGuide. “I could, but I’d probably get fired.”
This quote was made in response to patent illustrations released by the US Patent Office, which show Honda is at least is the process of designing a new sports car.
Whether it ever gets released or not is still to be determined.
