I hope they build a lightweight version without the FWD and E-motors...

Nice looking car but it needs another 150 horses.

With Twin Turbo 3.7L V-6 and 3 electric motors, I bet they are sandbagging the spec. They are claiming F458 performance at Porsche Carrera pricing.

Motor Authority says maybe over 600hp:

Car & Driver says over 500hp:

Motor Trend was estimating 480hp, but that might be too low:

Edmunds guesses at least 550hp or more:

Kinda cool that it's American made (Ohio)

The "Motorsport Pedigree" crowd should like it. The "only if it's a manual" crowd will probably be disappointed.

Now that has my attention. I have a deposit on the 960 but if it is priced around $300,000 and is around $120,000 not much to think about especially considering Honda quality is as good as it gets.

A cross between an R8 and 12C to my eyes - but all the worst parts of both! Not really a fan of the look, but turbo/hybrid is the way of the future. Lagless turbo power with better low rpm response than n/a engines - yes please! McLaren already proved it can be done while still keeping weight low.

It depends on the final specs - cost, weight, RWD or AWD, gearbox, etc.

Getting harder to find nice ones these day, my hopes pinned on Cayman GT4... Would be great if the GT3 RS surprises us as a member of the club too

Yes, but not as an alternative to the GT3.

I forgot about the NSX. I am sure it will be nice and well built but does not move me. Yesterday I saw an EVO test drive video on a Metallic Yellow Huracan. That car moves me and I certainly have a strong interest
