Hearing talk it will debut at Pebble Beach.

The rumor is 600ps ICE and 50ps rear Electric Motor.
No front TMU. 300-500 pounds lighter!

Without looking at what Threads were started, I was going to say this would be great time for a type R to tie a connection to anniversary, maybe they do get it. 300 to 500 pounds would make it a beast. So with lost of TMU it would be RWD and the electric motor just cleans up the shifting and helps elminate turbo lag I assume?

If this is true, I'm exited. It would put the NSX in serious performance territory. I'd be happy to see Honda battling the 488 and Huracan.

Rolled,

Now what you are proposing sounds genuinely tantalizing. On the surface, what you outline would seem to be a significant improvement! I will wait to see if Honda/Acura follows through
