Honda Sports Vision Gran Turismo Looks Just Like Those ‘Baby’ NSX Patents

A couple of years ago, a set of patented images surfaced showing a mysteriously sporty Honda model that pretty much looked like a smaller NSX.

We can now see how that particular design language was applied to this, the Sports Vision Gran Turismo, part of the Vision GT program from Sony’s upcoming Gran Turismo Sport video game, launching October 17th.

Compared to those patent images filed all the way back in 2015, the Sports Vision GT available in the game appears a bit sharper, with slightly more pronounced fenders. All in all, we’re clearly looking at the same car.

We also have a good idea of what the interior looks like thanks to this image. The cabin appears to have a rather simple layout, while the steering wheel is shaped like something out of a Formula One car.

In the end, even though this is just a concept, we’re hopeful Honda will put pen to paper soon and sign off on a production version, if they haven’t already. It’s been reported that such a car could wear the moniker ‘ZSX’ and rival the new Toyota Supra as the spiritual successor to the Honda S2000, more or less.

Big thanks to Eric

    Cut the bull and just reintroduce the Prelude as a Supra competitor.

      Prelude as a Supra competitor? Sorry that’s invalid for some reason

    • SteersUright

      Would love to see a modern Prelude, but I imagine this might be an S3000 or something along those lines.

    i feel like we all dodged a bullet… that line on the door is just awful

  • fabri99

    It’s definitely interesting, but a bit…”unspecial” to be GT Vision. Just compare this to what Mercedes and Peugeot have done.

    • Honda NSX-R

      Agreed

    • urbanglowcam

      I almost like the fact that it’s “unspecial” as that could mean more constraints were set on themselves to make this closer to production rather than being overly ambitious.

  • Todd

    Glad it’s just vaporware. This would have completed Honda’s failure.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    1. An S2000 will NEVER compete with a Supra

    2.If that Supra is making ANY LESS than 500 HP, they might as well rename the damn thing.

      Pshh. Tell that to Suki from 2 Fast 2 Furious.

    Would be nice for Honda to produce a cheaper sporty car….
