It's pretty safe to say Acura has been going through some pretty rough times.

Once known as the first ever Japanese Luxury brand building beautiful products like the original Legend Coupe, the marque now fights to even remain relevant.

And they honestly have no one to blame but themselves.

They've had a string of forgettable, bland/mediocre products along with an ineffective crew of executives.

Funny though, NONE of them have ever been fired and even now when you speak to anyone at the brand there seems to be no sense of urgency and a lot of denial remains.

So they're trying a Hail Mary with the return of the NSX seen here in IndyCar decoration.

THe question we want answered though is will the NSX be the answer or will the recetion be lukewarm or God forbid ANOTHER flop and too little, too late?

Spies, discuss...

From the Indy press release:

Acura today released an image of a prototype NSX supercar, announcing that the running prototype will take to the racetrack just prior to the Honda Indy 200 IndyCar Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The NSX prototype with custom graphics will lap the road course in advance of the race on August 4, 2013. The race will be broadcast live by NBC Sports Network starting at 3 p.m. EDT. Global development of the NSX, slated for launch in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Raymond, Ohio. Additionally, it was announced in May that the next-generation Acura supercar will be produced at the newly established Performance Manufacturing Center in nearby Marysville, Ohio. The prototype model maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, while packaging the production vehicle's mid-mounted V-6 engine mated to Acura's innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.

Is The Upcoming Acura NSX Going To Be Success Or Will It Be Lukewarm Or God Forbid A FLOP?
