Audi famously called the Acura NSX "vaporware," but that could soon be changing as the Japanese automaker has finally confirmed the model will be built at a new $70 (€53.9) million Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio.
The 184,000 square feet plant will employ approximately 100 "highly skilled" workers who will be selected from Honda's existing facilities in the state. Little else is known about the plant but Acura said it will offer the "perfect blend of associate craftsmanship and technology."
The car is scheduled to go into production in 2015, so Acura will begin selecting and training employees to build the NSX shortly.
As we have previously reported, the NSX will feature a mid-mounted V6 engine and a new Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. The latter system has two electric motors that power the front wheels as well as another motor that is integrated into the dual-clutch transmission.
