Don't get me wrong, I hope the manual sticks around too. I just think it would be a cool option. Knowing Honda, it won't happen. They seem to be committed to keeping the manual alive (at least with the Civic).Hell no, Si's and Type-R have always been manual and I hope it stays that way. In my opinion, if you are going to own a sports car, there's no other choice then going manual. Make them automatic and you're just gonna kill the manual market more than it is dying right now.
Im imagining adding two electric motor to the rear which helps the launching better from a stop and help torque vectoring like the NSX. that would definitely help improve in MPG.
Its almost like an AWD but not a true AWD
I Agree. Spending a crazy amount of R&D dollars to make the best front drive possible and screwing it all up by adding some retarded electric motor in the back.And all that will add thousands of $$ to the price for marginal performance gains. Look at what creative engineering did for the CTR FWD suspension. Other than, adding weight, cost and complexity there is ZERO benefit. And if you say well it's gonna add a few mpg......... It may add them but to pay 2-3-4k more to add a few mpg, no thanks. It will be a wash or take 10-15yrs to recoup the investment.
If Acura had made the new NSX without the hybrid nonsense they would have sold a lot more. They made it more expensive and pretty much crapped all over the essence of what an NSX.
The NSX was not a bare-bones simple machine when it was new. Not at all. These days, sure, now it seems that way -- but new? Yeah right.If Acura had made the new NSX without the hybrid nonsense they would have sold a lot more. They made it more expensive and pretty much crapped all over the essence of what an NSX.
Right -- and in its day, the NSX's high-revving VTEC V6 and electric steering were advanced tech, not ox cart-level basic stuff. What was cutting-edge becomes mainstream eventually.I'm referring to the NA V6 engine in the NSX as bare bones meaning no three hybrid motor nonsense.
