It's a shame ego hurts so many great cars. It's probably why the Boxster outsold the S2k, shame Honda keeps putting themselves in a losing position.



At least Honda tried this time. And there's probably not much they could have done aside from take a huge loss on each unit to give it more go-fast or sacrifice heritage (and likely a bit of fun) with AWD.

Look at those tiny little rubber band tires! 245/30 on 20" wheels! I can't imagine that 30 series sidewall rides very nice.

Reportedly better than the FoRS


But I totally agree, one of the things I really don't like about the car is the 20" wheel choice.

I could be wrong, but I thought they had went with 20's to help deal with torque steer on a 300HP FWD

Sorry, I don't understand how that would help.

I don't remember the specifics, but I think it had something to do with making room for dual dampers up front, one specific for torque steer. It also could have been related to the width of the 20" ? If anyone else knows more, please chime in on this

If you all want the old Honda back the first step is to de-Americanize the design across the board. This car looks too retarded in a cartoonish way to be a true performance car.

I haven't seen it in the flesh either, but the Type R means a lot to me. It is just that I am not paying 15-20g's for an old one, although that is how much they are worth.


After a week or so, it feels kind of like cleaning out your system with plenty of refried beans, wild rice, summer corn and the new imported spinach from France appears to work like editing magic.
