All this trash talk.
Someone put out some money already XD

My money is on type r making a return.
That motor is already slated to be a global engine. They look to be spending a lot of time developing it (at least, marketing propaganda suggests that). It would be silly to dump so budget on something which will only see limited markets. Not like Honda is big in Japan...

maybe they release the next 'Si' with this motor. a type-r is meant to imply a stripped down near race car, minimal creature comforts for the sake of performance. they'd probably sell more cars if it had the power, but also heated leather, sound deadening, Navi, A/C, etc. something heavily track tuned would either sell low numbers or be produced in limited numbers, and might not be worth the cost involved in getting it approved for NA roads.

i think there would be the appetite for a type-R in NA, but i'm just not sure that i would make economic sense.

yeah that rear upper area is kinda barftastic, but not many options for a hatch that aggressively designed

upon closer inspection, it sadly reminds me of:


c230 sooooooo nasty in the rear

lol at ppl - either the cars are to plain/boring/etc. - or now they're over the top

also, it's a prototype....wayyy far from being completed.
errr...235/35/19 tires are small on a civic?

I'm with you on the styling aspect.
But all the aero they threw on the car was soley to drop lap times around the ring. According to articles, they have the handling where they want it, and they aren't going to move much further north with power because "they are at limitations of fwd + power + front suspension design and associated torque steer". So the aero components are there for the sake of finding more time to drop on the track.... at least, that is according to...damn, I forgot where I read that. Some online publication XD

Totally don't understand that article's point.
The car isn't coming over just because it was built using global architecture??? Um hello, it's 2014 man. I am struggling to think of a car that wasn't built on a global architecture

I still don't doubt as much as others regarding this car's future in North America. Historically sure, Honda hasn't sent something like this here in a long time. But if Ford is sending Mustang to EMEA and APAC, and Fiat sent the Abarth here, and a market for fun cars long past is emerging (FRS), then why not bring this here. Even Mercedes brought the CLA here (AMG variant included!)--despite failures with past attempts at a cheapy benz.

And ok fine, Type R was lost money for every unit sold in the past. But it served a different purpose. That same purpose is needed once again with Honda's unexciting lineup. Just like what the FRS is/has done for Toyota.
