    ILX Coupe?

    Whats the word on an ILX coupe? I saw the renders and heard the chatter, radio silence since.... I don't see what the hold up is, an ILX coupe could be very competitive especially when you consider whos buying the ILX. Most are young mid 20s to early 30s, traditional coupe buyers. I'd say if the Civic wasn't so cheap looking many of them would own Civic coupes, why not give them an ILX coupe? I could be a resurection of the RSX and the Integra...





    I'd buy one.... Type S please...

    I'm sure many would buy but it doesnt seem to be happening

    Acura has been missing a sports coupe since the RSX.

    I think they are afraid of getting into that market because the RSX wasn't as successful as they would like. I still think they should do it.

    I'd definitely look into buying one.

    Probably won't happen.. It would cost around the same and not sure I would pay the same amount for an ILX coupe.. Might as well get a Scion FR-S imho

    I can see a crowd drawn in to a coupe model of the ILX but it depends what changes they make on it from the sedan model. Perhaps a type s model that many were expecting....

    That would be sweet, I know Honda is working on a totally new sports coupe so who knows, maybe it will use this drivetrain?

    Indeed they are, but whatever the new sport coupe is i seriously doubt it wears the acura badge or the ILX name... it seems like Honda/Acura is finally realizing allt he mistakes they made in the early 2Ks. First they revive the NSX and now they are reviving the S2000... bring back the Integra, the ILX doesnt cut it
