I was wondering why there has been no news about the ILX coupe so I did a little research and found out that Acura dropped it from production. Why did they do this?

Looking at this rendering, it would have looked great.

It would be nice if Acura brings back a coupe, like an Acura RSX successor, but it doesn't seem like they will fill that gap anytime soon. Instead the closest thing we'll see is a "mini-NSX", possible S2000 successor? hmmm

The coupe isn't a strong seller for Acura so they dropped it. I don't think they have any intention of bringing it back. :(

Yup, I remember back in Acura's coupe days, mainly the true Acura coupe, the CL. They didn't sell all that well when compared to the rest of their vehicles.

The Acura RSX did sell very well though, even today they have a very strong presence on the street of any major American city. But that's because it wasn't really a true luxury coupe, more so a sporty coupe, a coupe you bought if you want to step up from a Civic coupe.

If Acura brings back the RSX, they could have a winner, no CL though, it failed and will continue to LOL.

I like the idea of a coupe but Acura seems to stubborn with releasing a coupe in their line up. Now if they ever did come out with the ILX coupe may I suggest them to make it a rear wheel drive too! What do you guys think about that idea?

I've said before, if Honda came out with a 250 H.P. V6 RWD MT ILX, I'd trade mine in tommorow!

I would love to see that day come from acura but they arent budging. I don't think they will put a v6 in the ILX. But can you imagine if it did. The amount of torque woul be insane.

I think Acura would destroy the competition if they did this.

If they kept it light weight too.

250hp 180lbs of torque RWD 6 speed LSD ILX coupe.

Oh man...

They could probably knock a good amount of weight off by being a coupe. And the Honda V6s aren't that heavy.

If they somehow just swapped the TLs V6 in and borrowed the RWD from the S2000 or the AWD from the TL but made it shorter to fit the ILX..

Imagine that..

I have to stop dreaming and wake up. Acura is probably going to come out with more economy boxes. It is what sells.
