CAR Magazine says no more NSX, S2000, Type-R's, etc.
 Date: October 16, 2004 15:27
 Submitted by:  Jeff MGB
 Source: Car Magazine
 Credibility Rating: 1


CAR Magazine (UK) reports on page 11 of the November issue, "Honda: Sports car armageddon - Plans for the NSX MkII are dropped signalling Honda's imminent retreat from high performance products."

The article goes on to say that the future of all performace oriented Hondas, from sports cars to Type-R versions, are under threat stating, "[t]he bottom line is that the company anticipates greater returns by concentrating on other models, especially MPVs and SUVs in America and China, than by pumping time and cash into low volume techly sportsters."

As of 12:00 p.m PDT the November issue was not up on http://www.carmagazine.co.uk.

TOV Commentary, 19 October, 2004:
First of all, we will join the chorus of posters below and register our skepticism regarding this piece of information. Notice we assigned a credibility rating of only 5 on this, and even that was a bit generous, but we felt it was reasonable because we consider CAR Magazine to be a reputable and credible publication, so there must have been some reason to merit its printing. We queried one Honda spokesman and while not making any official statements, he indicated that this was most certainly strictly a rumor.
