Straight out of the Snowball's Chance and Swine Aeronautics department comes a report from Autobild that says the Honda HSV-010 is headed for production next year.

Why are we so skeptical? Aside from the fact that taking the HSV from the tracks of Japan to the streets of tomorrow would be a task of epic proportions, the last time we talked about the GT500 racer with Honda's high performance team they began tearing up about the NSX successor's stillborn status.

Regardless, ze German rag reports that the HSV-010 will undergo a slight makeover in the transition from race car to road car, with a slightly narrower track, more sculpted sides and the removal of the Cessna-sized rear wing.

A V8 will supposedly still be nestled up front, but instead of the SuperGT car's 3.4-liter V8, a 500+ horsepower 5.0-liter will take its place.

So, is the Lexus LFA finally going to get a worthy competitor from it's cross-town rivals? We'll continue our regularly scheduled breathing regime until we get an official word from Honda, but the possibility of an NSX revival – for real this time – has us panting a little bit harder.

I highly doubt the veracity of this story. Even if the car goes into "production", I'll bet the "volume" will be 10-20 per year. Still a cool car, though...
as long as i get mine... they can make 1/year for all i care lol...

if the specs are still going to be what they were b4 the cancellation then for sure put me on the list... i don't see why Honda can't have a Prius killer (performance + decent mpgs) and a LF-A destroyer too...

saw these pictures the other day... very nice color and great looking car...
