The “Summary of Honda Briefing on Automobile Electrification Business” might not sound like the most exciting presentation to sit through, but it’s at about 28:00 minutes that you should start taking notice:

 

While taking on challenges toward carbon neutrality and electrification, Honda always has a passion to offer FUN for its customers. The "joy of driving" will be passed on to our models even in the era of electrification, and Honda will globally introduce two sports models, a specialty and a flagship model, which will embody Honda's universal sports mindset and distinctive characteristics.

Since that’s all the information Honda is offering for now, let’s take some time to speculate what these two cars might be. EV replacements for cars like the S2000 and NSX­–or perhaps two entirely different models? And do you think they'll be sold here in the U.S.?

Discuss.

That left one certainly looks to be some sort of front-engine model, and the one on the right looks a little more mid-engine to me.

The one on the right looks guaranteed beyond my price range ever... The one on the left looks like it at least might have a chance at being attainable someday maybe.

Supply chain issues are a major concern for electric companies right now.  In most areas, they are giving priority to fixing what's broke, instead of building new facilities and infrastructure, or even preventative maintenance.  Couple that with the coming "electric car only" sales in the next 3-8 years, and it's probably not gonna be pretty.

The left one looks very much like the new Integra Type R.

and the right definitely is an NSX.

In case you didn't know, that "new Integra Type R" is an unofficial fan rendering that neither Honda nor Acura has anything to do with. Sadly, the real new Integra looks nothing like that.
