Despite production of more and more cars now being moved to cheaper Asian locations, Honda has just announced that production of its brand new NSX supercar will take place in the United States.
Production of the all-new Honda/Acura NSX supercar will kick off at the firm’s brand new Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio which cost some $70 million to produce.
Each and every Honda NSX will be built by a team of around 100 highly skilled engineers recruited from Honda’s existing Ohio production facilities with the company’s engine plant in Anna, Ohio then producing the NSX’s powertrain.
President & CEO of Honda of America and the boss of Honda’s manufacturing operations in North America Hidenobu Iwata said, “Thirty years ago, building cars in America was a big dream. Working together, here in Ohio and across North America we turned this dream into reality.
“The location of this facility is in the midst of one of the greatest collections of engineering and production talent in the world. So it makes sense that we will renew the dream and build this high-tech, supercar in Marysville, Ohio.”
