Cmon not even close. Replacing the LC with Supra is understandable. Both RWD coupes and the Supra is much more a sports car. Replacing a NSX with a 4 door Civic? That is beyond lame.
It would be like the LC 500 being replaced by a Corolla in Super GT.
Not just any Corolla but GR Corolla
See, it's not a Civic, it's the Civic Type R!!!!
I think I read somehwere in PR they did this to promote Type R brand. What Type R brand? Honda Japan couldn't even bother to do NSX Type R. What a company. They have Formula 1 championship winning engine that they cannot even call Honda anymore cause they pulled out right before they were going to win it for the first time. When they saw the second title is about to happen they begged RB to allow them to slap some side stickers on a car for Japan GP. Why bother in Formula 1 for ten years if you are not going to develop that Type R brand and spread it across dedicated models? And the kicker is they want to come back to F1 for 2026 but they can't partner up with Red Bull cause Red Bull will be designing their own power units by then. Part of the people invovled in RB PU project came from guess where? Honda F1 programme. What a company.
They are lucky Acura has nothing so they can repackage Type R hatch into Type S sedan and call it a legacy.
