Honda confirms NSX plan

Honda is more likely to give the new NSX a petrol-electric hybrid engine.

Honda has confirmed it is working on a car it hopes will fill the high-performance shoes of the mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports coupe that was dropped in 2005 after 15 years of glory - but, towards the end, dwindling sales.

This will be the Japanese carmaker's second attempt, after plans for a second generation were dropped in 2008 when the global financial crisis forced a change in focus.

However the front-mounted V10 engine touted for that project won't live on in the new car.

Honda is more likely to give the new NSX a petrol-electric hybrid engine, hoping to position it as a true sports sibling to the hybrid CR-Z, which has struggled to convince critics and buyers it has real performance credentials.
