More Pictures Of The Civic Type-R

Anyone willing to take bets we’ll see something like this on our shores? I’m thinking we’ll see the same powertrain but in a sedan or coupe. A Civic hatchback seems like a longshot, but with the Focus, Mazda3 and Golf offering them, perhaps there’s an opportunity for a revival?

- Jdt65724922 How can a Chrysler E-Class ride better than a Chrysler Fifth Avenue?
- Lorenzo This series is epic, but I now fear you'll never get to the gigantic Falcon/Dart/Nova comparison.
- Chris P Bacon Ford and GM have decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Odds are Chrysler/Cerberus/FCA/Stellantis is next to join in. If any of the companies like Electrify America had been even close to Tesla in reliability, we wouldn't be here.

- Chris P Bacon I see no reference to Sweden or South Carolina. I hate to assume, but is this thing built in China? I can't help but wonder if EVs would be more affordable to the masses if they weren't all stuffed full of horsepower most drivers will never use. How much could the price be reduced if it had, say, 200hp. Combined with the instant torque of an EV, that really is plenty of power for the daily commuter, which is what this vehicle really is.
My bet is on a US version of the engine in a US version of the Civic... That would mean a sedan and coupe, with safer styling, less power, more comfortable suspension, smaller brakes and at least 2/3 the price of the euro version, probably for the 10th gen Si introduced as a 2017 or 2018 model year car sometime in 2016 or 2017.
