Neal's Fantasy Factory churns out the 2012 Civic Si Hatchback Concept
 Date: April 26, 2011 11:24
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV Art Director Neal McDaniel
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


I'm beginning to think that Neal was hoping for something different from the 2012 Civic lineup. Here's another one of his ideas.



Neal would also like for you to look for:

  • True "One Motion" design.
  • Shortened front and rear overhangs.
  • Tinted headlamps w/clear corners.
  • Revised a-pillar garnish w/kink.
  • Lowered ride height w/18" wheels.
  • Cleaner rocker panels
  • Slightly lowered roof line.
  • Extended rear passenger windows
  • Slightly wider stance.
  • More orange in color.
  • Factory tint.

    ...and a happier blue sky!
