Default Acura NSX Spider Design Revealed in Patent Application?

Ever since production of the first-generation Acura NSX ended in 2005, we’ve anxiously awaited its replacement, and after it finally bowed at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, we couldn’t be more excited — until now. Rumor has it a design sketch for an Acura NSX Spider is patent pending.
According to a Honda and Acura forum, sketches of a topless NSX supercar were leaked on a French automotive blog. Apparently, six drawings of the open-top supercar belonging to Honda were filed with the European Patent Office on February 22. The wireframe sketches show all angles of the car, and below them, 3D renderings of the coupe version of the Acura NSX show styling differences that would take place in the Spider. Both models look to be about the same, except for the chop top, of course.
This may not come as a complete surprise though. We already expected a convertible body style was in the cards after a mystery convertible Acura was spotted on the set of “The Avengers” movie. Although Acura spokesman Gary Robinson said the open-top sports car is a “one-off fictional car that was created just for the film,” we’ve been betting our lucky stars the movie prop would become a reality. And these sketches could be a very good indication of that.
