My first car was a Honda. I’m still a fan, even today. However, most car enthusiasts will agree: They simply lack power out of the box. Don’t get me wrong, I love the S2000, I love the NSX, but Honda simply never offered a turbocharged compact sports car, and that’s always been a problem.
Well, until now…
The 2015 Civic Type R, announced at the Geneva Motor Show now comes turbocharged. It doesn’t look half bad either.
The only problem for those of us in the United States is that…the forced induction version may never make it’s way over here.
Luckly, there is a petition going on at Change.org petitioning Honda to bring this lucrative compact car over to us. It seems sort of strange amongst the more important petitions, but for long-time Honda enthusiasts, it’s long overdue.
Maybe now this will hush a lot of Honda criticism within certain automotive enthusiast circles…?
