The Acura NSX is likely the hottest car to ever come racing out of Honda's often-staid bullpen, so news that its successor might be a hybrid has raised red flags with some enthusiasts. After all, Honda's hybrid line up hasn't exactly set the world on fire. The Insight has received mediocre reviews and been called a poor alternative to the Toyota Prius (though things are looking up for 2012).

Not only is team Corvette taking shots at the Nissan GT-R, besting its 'Ring time in the process, so is Acura with its well-publicized NSX replacement.

VTEC also has a chart comparing the estimated dimensions with those of the Nissan GT-R, Porsche GT2, and Corvette Z06. While the exact measuremen

We (and many of you) were blown away by Acura's Advanced Sports Car Concept when it was unveiled at NAIAS in January.
