EGMCarTech Says AutoTeleGraaf Says NSX Concept is Coming To Detroit. Huh?!

Citing sl=nlu=http://www.telegraaf.nl/autotelegraaf/2896216/__Honda_plande_concept_car_NSX-opvolger_voor_Detroit__.htmlsa=Xoi=translateresnum=3ct=resultprev=/search%3Fq%3DAutotelegraaf%2Bnsx%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26safe%3Doff%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26hs%3DCqs%26as_qdr%3Dw" target="_blank">AutoTeleGraaf as a source, EGMCarTech posted a newsitem yesterday claiming that despite recent official statements stating that the NSX-successor's development had been cancelled, Acura was planning to show a final concept of the NSX at the North American International Auto Show.

TOV Commentary: Now, I suppose anything is possible, and things could have taken a dramatic turn in the past few weeks, but based upon Honda's official statement that the NSX program had been cancelled, I would put myself in the "highly skeptical" bin on this particular rumor. If there were any truth to this particular rumor, I'd have to think that Honda's PR staff wouldn't be telling journalists that Acura would have very limited involvement at NAIAS.

And on a side note, Happy New Year everyone!


UPDATE: One of the TOV's Dutch readers has now chimed in after reading the AutoTeleGraaf and says that what the AutoTeleGraaf article REALLY says is that Acura WAS planning on showing the NSX Concept in Detroit, but since the NSX development was cancelled, they will no longer be showing the Concept. Maybe somebody from Acura can clear this up once and for all. This is why we only gave the rumor a "1" on the credibility score. We would have given it a "0" but we don't have that in our system (maybe we should add it).
