    It does look like a longer TSX. Conservative and sharp styling, IMO. Needs a few changes though. Looks better than the ES300, G35 sedan (coupe is a different story), and CTS. Now waiting on word of its powertrain. :big grin:

    Powertrain? Typical Honda:

    200-220HP
    FWD
    Shitty slushbox transmission

    It'll probably be 260hp to match the G35. Type-S might will probably get higher power and 6 speed manual with a possibility of AWD. :dunno:

    Hell no, why would they have LESS HP? :ugh:

    CURRENT HP

    TL = 2250HP
    TL-S = 260

    I doubt the 6 sp option on the TL

    AWD is a reach too

    I actually like the rear as is... but I the front needs some work to distinguish it in my opinion. Either way its a good start

    Since the CL 6spd is no more, why not? And its not that difficult to apply the 6psd from the Accord coupe into a TL-S.

    AWD isn't a reach, because the JDM Accord are available AWD.

    Every car in their lineup looks just like the Civc does.

    Which isn't a good thing.

    Look closer and you'll see small pods for cameras. All cars will be like this one day.

    But the production version will most definitely have mirrors, not cameras.
