Looks better. Still prefer the R8 tho.

Kinda reminds me of the Lotus Elan Concept.

Yep. And all look uninspired.

The i8 is anything but uninspired.

This looks so underwhelming it makes me want to fall asleep.

I dunno. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like it but it looks very generic. Without badges this could easily be a Lotus concept or some unknown manufacturer. It has no links at all with the original NSX. I know the NSX is dated but I still love it. This looks good but not as a NSX replacement. It looks like BMW i8/Lotus/Maclaren MP4

+1 they should've stuck with the Honda HSC concept

I've never liked the Acura "crease" on the rear bumper either. Can't tell if it's coming or going.

It looks like an R8 crashed into a RL. It's kind of hideous.

I like it better than the R8 and the Gallardo, though in shape/proportions Audi R8, Lamborghini Gallardo, McLaren MP4-12C, Lotus Espirt, BMW i8 and Honda NSX are all the same.

The BMW i8 is also a BMW M1 Hybrid. The i8 compared to the NSX is a 2+2, and has the same power but with a TU 1.6l I4 compared to the NA 3.7l V6 in the NSX. NSX sounds more sporty than i8.

Looks A LOT like the R8. That's not a bad thing.

Nobody would ever mistake the original NSX for anything else. This one just seems to have a lot less uniqueness about it. However, I hope it delivers in performance to deserve the moniker.

I bet a lot of people would think they were Ferraris. An enthusiast wouldn't mix it up, but there are a bunch of people that would think an NSX was a highly modified 6th gen Accord Coupe. . .
