The next-generation supercar, Acura's 2015 re-launch of its NSX sports vehicle will be built near Marysville, Ohio, not too far from Honda's Accord plant.

The revival of the NSX was announced at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and the Acura community has been buzzing with high expectations for the upcoming reboot of what is many enthusiasts' most favorite sports car ever. Even the governor of Ohio, John Kasich, has chimed in on the matter calling the NSX the kind of vehicle James Bond would drive. "In that car you become part of the highway, you become part of the road,” he said.

The original Acura NSX was highly regarded by both users and the press, with Consumer Reports calling it “one of the cornerstone sports cars of all time.” Honda surprised everyone in 1990 by making an exotic sports car that was reliable, handled well, and showed exceptional performance.

The new model will have a midmounted V-6 engine and an all-wheel-drive system powered by three electric motors. The gas engine and electric motors will work together in a “sport hybrid” system that will make for a more-responsive ride.

Pricing for the new NSX is yet to be announced. The last known sticker price back in 2005 was approximately $90,000.
