Acura NSX Inspires Prettier Porsche 718 Rival

By  | 

Like how the Audi TT can be described as the miniature version of the Audi R8, Honda could be preparing a scaled down version of the Acura NSX.

The Japanese carmaker may have yet to mention anything about it but spy shots have surfaced earlier today and they are showing a mysterious compact sports car that looks much like the NSX. The spy shots even got the rumors claiming it to be the next-gen S2000.

To make it more interesting, the prototype’s design is very much like the patented sketch found on the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The trademark was filed back in 2015 hence we could be seeing the final product breaking its cover as early as next year.

So what do you think could it be? Our guess is the next-gen S2000 that will rely on the Civic-sourced 1.5L turbo-4 engine but tuned for performance rather than fuel economy. If this is spot on, then we may have the perfect Japanese rival for the Porsche 718.
