Acura won't roll out the prototype NSX until August 4 when it shows up at Mid-Ohio Raceway for the Honda 200 IndyCar race, and the genuine production car isn't scheduled to arrive until 2015. Acura will, though, make the car a Vine and Instagram video star with snippets of the mid-engined roarer lapping the test track in both the dry and the wet.

After unleashing a six-second loop on Twitter's video service yesterday, it gave fans a bit more by uploading a nine-second clip on Instagram of the coupe throwing up rooster tails and sliding around bends. Best of all is the sound - it's like no Acura you've ever heard outside of a race track. You can check out both videos below.

      Im a skeptic of this car. This is Hondas change to restore my faith in them. But im afraid this car will be too far from what made the original great. This will be more of a luxury cruiser exotic car, than the formula of the original which was to make a futuristic super car at a reasonable price (for super cars) with every day livability that didnt pamper the driver in luxury but had just enough to not get in teh way of enjoying the driving. I hope Acura can pull that off but im expecting something more along the lines of an R8 v8. while great just not the same formula. And oh man do i miss the days when cars could be low to the ground. This thing looks twice the height of the original NSX

      I'm not very good at math, but I'm pretty sure nine plus six is 15, not 17.

      First there was GTR, then LFA. So now, Welcome back NSX!

      Prelude VTEC, ITR, S2000, NSX, those are what made us like Honda back in the '90s, it's sad they never moved past them.

      The original was a focused driver's car. This looks to be another computer laden performer.

      If this car goes forward it will be a very limited production with long waiting lists and people willing to pay well over a sticker price that will probably be in the $110,000 to $120,000. It will compete with the Audi R8 and Nissan GT/R so sales will be in low numbers So what about the rest of the Acura lineup?. The MDX and RDX make up close to 60% of it\'s sales and they are warmed over CRV\'s and Pilot\'s with a few upgraded features. The RDX is a way over priced Accord with a few \"gee whiz\" elctronics that hardly sells, The ILX sells less than Acura\'s two other lines which are sorely outdated. The ZDX is a disaster..styling and sales. This company needs a real hit with the TL/TSX replacement or they will be in trouble.

        The MDX is now actually on its own platform, it is not derived from the Pilot nor the Odyssey. The RDX is built off the CR-V and is selling quite well, maybe you meant to say the RLX is an overpriced Accord. Criticizing the car for the platform it's built from rather than its relative merits is a bit of a lazy argument. What exactly do you think is wrong with the RLX? To me I think the styling is a bit anonymous and Acura made the large mistake of leading with the FWD model and not the eSH-AWD model. I think they squandered a lot of the car's fortunes by doing that. As for the ILX and ZDX, they are the two major disappointments in the lineup. The ILX could easily be fixed though if they offered the 200 hp engine with an automatic (or CVT or DCT), and offered a more powerful engine with the 6MT.

      Frankly I would be much more excited if Acura was developing a new Integra, or Honda a Prelude.

      Wow it doesn't sound like the original NSX at all .... which sucks. The design isn't as timeless as the original, it looks like a "me too" product or carbon copy of the R8.

        I dont understand the problems with its similarity to the R8. If I recall, when the R8 first came out, a lot of people referred to it as a spiritual successor to the NSX.

        LOL. the original NSX was a 3rd rate copy of a Ferrari....now sure how that was timeless or original in any way.

      If I have to wait until 2015, this NSX will have stiff competition (for my dollars) with the Chevy Sonic. The line in the sand is drawn, Acura.
