Honda changes plans about next NSX(?)

According the German "Auto, Motor und Sport" magazin the next NSX will be introduced in fall 2007 with V10 front mid engine with AWD and should compete against cars like the Aston Martin DB9 and will share the chassis with the next generation Legend (RL) who will be available with a v8 engine.

They also speak about plans for a new CRX and a compact car like the Rover Mini....further they state that the next Euro Accord (TSX) due in 2009 will look like the Sport 4 Concept study (shown in Tokyo).

TOV Comment: I'm not quite sure what part was "changed" in terms of the NSX's plans. We have basically assumed that the car would likely sport the SH-AWD system (though we were sort of hoping it wouldn't), and Honda has announced officially and repeatedly that the car would bear a V10 engine. Most indications had pointed that the car would be released in 2008, but perhaps those indications were for the model year rather than the calendar date of release. Of course, pointing to the Aston Martin DB9 as a competitor could represent the "change in plans". Rather than aiming for Ferrari and Porsche, Acura may be shifting its sights towards luxury sports models from Aston Martin and Bentley.
