Don't be thrown off by the "hybrid" element of the new NSX, though. As with the original car, the new NSX is a thrilling driver's car. This is not a hybrid in the Toyota Prius, 52-miles-per-gallon sense. The three electric motors in the NSX are more about putting power efficiently to the road than they are about scrimping pennies at the pump, with the motors supplementing the thrust from the turbocharged engine and motivating the front wheels to enhance traction out of corners. And while the NSX's EPA-rated fuel economy of 21 mpg combined is decent for a car of this ilk, it's no better than the nonhybrid Porsche 911 Turbo.
Another sign of the times is that there's no more traditional manual transmission, a particular shame because the original NSX had one of the slickest-shifting gearboxes ever created. In its place is a smooth and quick nine-speed dual-clutch automated manual with paddle shifters. You can use the steering wheel paddles, but there's almost no need. The NSX shifts superbly on its own, performing multiple, crisp downshifts as you brake hard for a turn.
