Honda Exec Says A $30,000 Sports Car Is Very Desirable To Company

Honda Exec Says a $30,000 Sports Car is ‘Very Desirable’ to Company

Honda is working on getting its sporty image back with cars like the NSX and Civic Type R, but if it were up to Honda Australia director Stephen Collins, the automaker would not be stopping there. 

In a recent interview with CarAdvice, Collins said Honda really wants to dial up the sporty image of its brand, a fact evidenced by the arrival of the NSX and Type R, but said if “anything else becomes available, we'd really be chasing that pretty hard." He didn’t go into detail as to what to what type of sports car the company may be eyeing, only saying that if “another type of sports car that becomes available to us, say if it was a convertible or something that could come in at around $30,000  that would be very desirable for us."

Liberty Walk Honda NSX Is The Finest Of JDM Creations

Previous photos of Liberty Walk’s Honda NSX failed to do the Japanese supercar justice. These images, however, perfectly highlight the car and all of its significant styling modifications.

Liberty Walk created its NSX with some help from Forgiato Wheels and even though the project is tame by the tuning company’s standards, this NSX is worlds apart from a standard one.

Honda Cr-v Hybrid Ruled Out, Evs On The Radar

Honda CR-V Hybrid ruled out, EVs on the radar

Honda’s local boss has ruled out an Australian introduction for the CR-V Hybrid shown in ‘prototype’ form at this year’s Frankfurt motor show, but the brand hasn’t turned its back on bringing electric vehicles Down Under in the not-too-distant future.

Speaking with CarAdvice at the Australian launch of the Civic Type R hot hatch, Stephen Collins, director of Honda Australia, said the low local take-up of hybrid vehicles and a lack of government incentives mean the electrified SUV doesn’t really stack up for our market.

Cheaper Honda Civic Type R Apparently Revealed In Nhtsa Filings

Cheaper Honda Civic Type R apparently revealed in NHTSA filings

The Honda Civic Type R is one of the fastest and most capable hatchbacks around, but with a base MSRP of $34,775, it isn't exactly the most affordable. The high base price is due in part to the mono-spec nature of the car: one trim with all the bells and whistles. That said, it seems that Honda may be working on a second model that ditches some equipment, presumably lowering the car's price. This news was uncovered by The Truth About Cars.

TTAC was digging around in NHTSA filings when it discovered that Honda registered two Type Rs, one listed as a Touring model. Both cars use the same K20C1 turbocharged 2.0-liter and six speed manual, but the separate listing suggests less equipment. On most Hondas, the Touring package includes things like LED lighting, automatic climate control, premium audio and navigation. Expect the lesser Type R to ditch most or all of those features. Smaller wheels and less aggressive aero could be on the table, too.
