    Engine developed specifically for the model, dry sump, 9 speed DCT, this is a serious effort. If the turbo + hybrid system is well implemented, it will have near zero turbo-lag, loads of torque and and loads of traction. I believe it will be faster than the 911 turbo, GT3, GTR Nismo, F458 and may even give a serious fight to the Ford GT.
    Looks good Honda! but I still hate hybrid sports cars.
    Less powah is better

    ^That's a tall order. I'd be surprised if it were.

    BUT, the original NSX was better than the 348, however that car was performance driven not technology driven. We will see if the 2.0 still holds to its performance heritage or goes off the path towards an engineering exercise.

    That's what it is.
    You look at all the high tech bits and pieces and ask yourself at the end whether you want all that or strip the car back to the mechanicals and save some tens of thousands of dollars in cost and good few hundreds of Lbs.
    The spec sheet arms race is causing manufacturers to increase the amount of nannies on the car too, makes everything even less 'real driver' oriented.

    I'm starting to think that the last Viper, C6Z and maybe a few select 911 variants might have been the last real driver supercars.
