Acura NSX Dynamic Development Leader Nick Robinson recently revealed the company will likely offer an NSX Roadster so automotive manipulator Theophilus Chin has created some rendering of what the model could look like.

Seen here in Honda guise, the renderings depict a stylish looking convertible that stays pretty faithful to the coupe.  Despite the styling similarities, the convertible features revised side scoops and a new rear end which accommodates a power retractable soft top.  The model has also been equipped with two rollover hoops that sit behind the seats.

Like the standard model, the roadster will be powered by a high-tech powertrain that consists of a biturbo 3.5-liter V6 engine and three electric motors.  This setup enables the car to produce a combined output of 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet.  Given enough room to play, the all-wheel drive NSX will accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in three seconds before hitting a top speed of 191 mph.

The 2017 Acura NSX coupe will go into production next month and cost $156,000.  A convertible variant is still likely a ways off and it will likely carry a hefty premium over the standard model.
