Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Acura NSX

What is it? Long teased, Acura will produce an all-new, second-generation NSX supercar, starting in about three years. The original NSX soldiered from 1990 to 2005, creating legions of enthusiasts that respected its dynamics, exotic engineering, and even its laudable ergonomics. Now, Acura is poised to rekindle that halo-car magic by bringing the NSX concept on to production.

The new NSX continues the dedication to lightweight design, applying a hybrid all-wheel-drive system. That’s right, hybrid. The NSX will combine a mid-mounted V6 with a hybrid drivetrain. Details are thin at this point, but the concept is tantalizing.

What is new or notable? While the original NSX was produced in Japan, the next-gen model will be built in Ohio.

When will it be available? Roughly 2015.
