Honda's Anna, OH engine plant has built over 25 million engines! A little tidbit in the article mentions that there is additional investment for engines for a next generation of products. Could this mean the new 3.0T v6 and 2.0T i4 or even a 4.0T v8. 4.0T v8 would be NSX only and could save Honda 20k per NSX which translates to lower sale price or an additional 20K profit.

Then again NSX motor is rather expensive and is not being used to its full potential. I don't think the V8 will happen, but you never know. Honda is aiming for 500cc/cylinder v angle engine. Either 60, 75 or 90 degrees. Honda has been patenting some stuff and some people around Anna, OH are saying that a new DOHC timing chain engine is close to being finished. NSX motor is also not fully made in house and Honda likes to do things in house.

Honda has been the least collaborative of automakers. Insular and sanctimonious.

Yet Cosworth is making the NSX block which is basically a street legal Indy car motor.
