If Honda were responsive to the market, they would watch the success of this and release an NSX without all the hybrid stuff, under the Honda name as a C8 competitor. Make it a halo Honda Type R car instead of an Acura.

And yeah, I'd be in line with E.Nick trying to get a C7 ZR1 now, and hanging on to it until the higher performance versions (or when the bugs are all worked out) of the C8 are released. Then in 5 years or so, sell the C7 for a profit to make up the cost difference to whatever the C8 Z06 ends up costing.

But meh, I'm not going to buy a Corvette. Hopefully, the success of this can act as a wakeup call to manufacturers that there IS an appetite for an affordable sports car. Anything to shakeup the mass migration to crossovers and SUV's.
