Acura official sends e-mail stating "Tier 1" is moving forward

We have just received a tip concerning a letter that was allegedly sent to Acura dealers by Jeff Conrad (Vice President of the Acura division) The letter asserts that the rumors concerning the supposed cancellation of development of Acura's future "Tier 1" vehicles is "false". According to our tipster, Conrad essentially states that the NSX successor is dead, but the other plans are moving forward.

Hopefully this rumor turns out to be the one that's true. (Mr. Conrad, please feel free to drop me a line so we can clear all of this up.)

UPDATE 9:26PM EST: I have now seen a copy of the "letter" (it was actually sent in e-mail form). This rumor is hereby confirmed.

UPDATE 01:49AM EST: Text paraphrasing Mr. Conrad was also revised to reflect actual statements in e-mail.
