Default New 2015 Civic Type R in America!

Hi guys, 1-2 months ago I saw a petition on facebook asking honda to put the new civic type r on us market and here is what I got in my mail tonight. Kinda interesting. Read it! So here it is:




Thank you again for supporting this petition and I wish everyone a
great , happy and healthy 2014.

My sources are telling me that Honda is still undecided on the timing
of the introduction of the new Vtec Turbo engine for the US market,
but it sounds like a certainty.

I started a new forum/community where I want to hear your stories because when I read your comments, I really wish I could reply to every single one of you, so now we can do this if you chose to be part of this new community.

Please register if you believe because I am 100% certain beyond any doubt that we are going to get the Civic Turbo in the states.

www.vtecturbo.com/forum

The Civic turbo is coming to the USA. Honda will not confirm it but I heard from Honda USA a few more times and it seems that they want major media exposure in order to announce the good news.

Honda wrote the following:
"Nikos,

While I appreciate your interest in the new engines, there's not really an
easy way to set up a test drive of the demo vehicles used in the Motor
Trend article. Once per year, Honda sets up a technical briefing for
journalists from around the world, and in 2013, Motor Trend was part of
that briefing. They were able to see the engines for the first time and
drive production mules with the engines installed, but it's not going to be
possible to gain access to our R&D facility for a similar experience.
Frankly, if you worked for The Today Show or something, I might be able to
pull it off, but your site is simply not large enough to gain approval from
executives for that level of access.

I'm sorry that I can't give you a more favorable answer.

Chris Martin
Western Region Public Relations
Honda North America, Inc."

So of course I contacted the Today Show.

Also, for those that still do not believe that the Civic Type R is coming,
Yoshiharu Itai, Honda chief engineer for the upcoming crossover Vezel
is quoted on the articles as he confirms the turbo engine for the SUV
that will be coming in the USA, late 2014.

http://www.autoweek.com/article/2013...NEWS/131229999

http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/20/h...hybrid-report/

http://www.carscoops.com/2013/12/hon...-in-japan.html

Also make sure to check out the brief review of the 1 Liter, 1.5 Liter
and 2 Liter VTEC Turbo engines as well by Motor Trend

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...wertrain_tech/

So I also asked Honda about the Vezel and their reply was

"Nikos,

We've said publicly that a vehicle similar to the Vezel, based on the Fit
platform, will go on sale here in the US later this year. We haven't
announced any details about the US version, name, specs, etc. yet, but we
have confirmed that it will be built in the same new factory as the new US
Fit in Celaya, Mexico. That's significant because we've been sourcing all
Fit vehicles from Japan previously, which restricted supplies and left it
vulnerable to currency fluctuations.

I can't tell you when we'll say more about the new SUV, but we'll make some
noise before it goes on sale. That's what we do!

Chris Martin
Western Region Public Relations
Honda North America, Inc."

Please share this petition with your friends, almost 5000 signatures
is incredible but we should not stop now.

thank you for making a difference and signing the petition

If they do come to the states, I wonder how many people saying "I would definitely buy it ASAP" would go back on their word. Just like when the R32 became legal to import.
