Four out of ten for Honda, two in each category! Can you guess what they are ?

I feel like a 25yo in a 45yo body, but then when I read this and 100% agree, what glorious days and understand those times are gone... then I understand, yes, I'm not 25 any longer, but pushing 50 :)

Between 2004-2014 I wrote and complained and waited, Honda has lost their way, but they never lost it, they never had it, it was just 1988-2003, those 15years is just an anomaly in a long history. I just happened to get into cars just at that time. Now we are back to normal.

Ack, cheer up ! The lovely Urban EV is coming, don't forget the great little S660 in Japan, the new NSX pushes tech and is pretty well regarded (ignore thr grumps around here !), and the CTR is an absolute smash hit - almost every single review says its amazing. Good things still sneak out from Honda. Oh F1 is looking promising too.

Here's a quote from a recent Car Magazine article regarding the CTR:
The most powerful hatch here with 316bhp on tap. And the chassis? Same old magic - there's a little NSX in there, and a little NSX goes a long way.


OK, I admit, the days of high-rev craziness seem to be gone for now, but things are not all bad !

I said the same thing after driving it!

I miss the high rpm engines as well, but the low to mid range shove from the turbo'd motor is a good substitute.

Hhaha no supra, and no RX-7, but understandable. The STI and Evo are too iconic. And no doubt the GT-R and NSX are legends.
