    If the only thing they changed was adding door handles Acura could be headed in the right direction lol

    Honda did announce it is is developing new v6 turbo for its futureType S vehicle.
    So probably AWD and V6 turbo. But question is how will it look once it reach production stage.
    This is a good looking concept.

    I love the rear wheel drive like dash to axle ratio, and RWD like surfacing in the design.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    Character lines! is that what you call them. I call them strengthening for the thin panels. It doesn't need useless lines on the sides anyway.

    It's ok. Best thing about it is the color.

    They did a nice job hiding the fwd proportions, be interested to see if that visual trick that words in 2D photos carries over to the real world. That's why, to my eyes, all Acura's look like Honda's - they all have that fwd proportions that in the end make them just look Honda's with fancier detailing and not luxury cars.

    The front has me thinking Lexus and the side profile makes me think Mazda. Both in a good way. I'm not a potential buyer in this segment, but I like this. The color looks great too.

    It looks fantastic to me. It would make a better Legend coupe though.

    GM needs to learn there's profit to be made in Good Looking sport sedans.

    Decent looking. I think a coupe version of CT4 or CT5 would look somewhat like this.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    It's amazing what shifting the cabin back a few inches does for a vehicles profile. The FWD front overhang is still there but less dramatic because of the longer hood. Mazda uses the same trick on the 6.
