    Hmm...front end off a Civic, engine bay off an Accord, cabin off I dunno what, and rear end off a Fisker.

    The Prelude's gone, man, give it up. It's been gone for almost a decade and Honda's sales haven't suffered at all.

    All they did was change the Accord coupe a little.

    Every Prelude they made sucked anyway.

    Of course, now the Accord Coupe sucks too, but there's always Acura; their design team still has their heads on straight.

    Also, the Prelude was sweet, except for the 4th gen which sucked balls (but had a cool dashboard)

    This Acura Advanced direction Honda is taking is embarrassing. All these designs are being done here in the good ol' USofA in California. That's also embarrassing, being from CA myself.

    That TL looks like that turd Acura Advanced Sedan Concept. FUGLY.

    The Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept was just as hideous.

    And to think they canned this as the NSX replacement. WTF are they thinking?? :ugh::hs::sadwavey:

    NO THANKS! I'm keeping my 93 NSX. MR FTMFW.

    :eek3: That is beautiful. It looks like an updated NSX... as it should.
    I'm imagining that with the 10k RPM V10 in it and getting very hard.
    Then I realize it will never happen, and I get soft.

    From everything I've heard, the new "NSX" is going to be an AWD
    bloat-mobile like the new Nissan GTR. Not that the GTR is a bad car, but Honda has always been known for smaller, more nible vehicles... why don't they stick with it?

    How much does it cost to safely ship a car from West Coast to East Coast? Most of the NSX's I see are in California. I might want to pick one up.

    I've heard anywhere from ~$1k-2.k. You're better off flying out here and driving it home I would think. Beautiful country we have here, good excuse to see it. I've driven mine cross country a couple times already, driven it many more times with other cars as well.
