    I personally like the new direction of the grills in my opinion, would say SH-AWD would be a better step for them than RWD, and reducing road noise all across the board on all their models would be nice. Good read.

    Honda should still have a RWD car. SH AWD is awesome and I love it but I think a S2000 successor is something many are hoping for. A real Integra/RSX replacement would also be welcome. And a REAL CRX replacement would of course be amazing.

    TRUE. There is obviously a market for it.. that FR-S/BR-Z is selling like crazy.. and it's not near the motor/tranny combo as a Honda IMO.. I see where you're coming from.

    Nice article! This should be mailed to Acura/Honda. Instead us reaching out to them they really should bring something to the table and reach out to us. What ever happened? I wonder if they were getting tired of the reputation they were getting from their car turning in to tuner vehicles. I really hope this new sport vehicle they are suppose to bring out is gonna be nothing less than intriguing.

    My thought is.. Imagine if the FR-S or BRZ had a K24 with a S2000 transmission and drivetrain.

    There we go. That could be something Honda could make.. If they wanted to be even more crazy throw the RDX turbo motor into a front engine RWD honda chasis.

    Even if they put a more powerful RDX turbo motor in the Accord with AWD that would still rock the industry.

    It's just more efficient vs a V6. I think Honda should look more seriously into producing 4 cylinder turbos. They do a great job at making 4 cylinders. Some of the best in the market. Now they just need to get good at turbos
