    I thought it appropriate to start a new thread given the magnitude of the announcement!

    Someone post up any links to video feed and I'll edit this OP to include it.

    Civic Type R Makes U.S. Debut at 2017 AutoCon in Los Angeles
    The long-awaited Civic Type R finally comes stateside with an appearance at a hub of automotive performance and tuning

    Mar 24, 2017 - TORRANCE, Calif.


    After its global reveal in Geneva earlier this month, the first production Civic Type R coming to America will make its U.S. debut at the 2017 AutoCon automotive performance and tuning convention in Los Angeles on March 26 with an on-stage presentation scheduled for 4:00 PM PDT. With 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque1 on tap from its 2.0-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged i-VTEC® in-line 4-cylinder engine, the 2017 Civic Type R is the fastest, most powerful Honda ever sold in America. Featuring aggressive styling to match its performance, the Civic Type R is the "hot hatch" that U.S. compact enthusiasts have been dreaming about.

    For East Coast enthusiasts, the Type R will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show on Apr. 12. The first Type R-badged Honda will go on sale nationwide in late spring with an MSRP in the mid-$30,000 range.

    I believe Hondapro Jason announced he was in California again this weekend. Seems odd because he just left there a few days ago. Perhaps he was tipped off he might want to be in LA Sunday?!

    that would be pretty epic, but really, anything is a plus over waiting until NY.

    Now I basically guarantee that they won't present any new information about the Civic Type R at the NYIAS, but the "debut" is just the fact that it will be present in its final form. This would leave room for announcements of the Si, the Clarity plug-in hybrid, and the Clarity Electric.

    So you think this possibly leaves the impression we should get the majority of the info released at this LA reveal/presentation?

    I would say yes. But I have no other sources besides this that indicate such a thing. There is no talk of a presentation for NY. I feel there would just be way too much to talk about if they debuted all three cars with new information in a 25 minute window. No official word about the Si being presented at the NYIAS yet, just word of mouth.

    If you think about it, it could be the case! I mean they do the TypeR reveal here, it kinda takes the pressure off NYIAS, and does leave the opportunity to show the Si coupe and sedan at the same time.

    It's odd to me that the TypeR is at AutoCon when they've already stated they aren't building any TypeR's for SEMA...

    i do think that makes sense. hopefully someone on here will see this thread that may have some inside info/knowledge.
    Seeing as a lot of the town hall meeting photos are being widely spread and shared like there is nothing to hide anymore, i think we are in for the big reveal!:popcorn:

    we will prob see ppl like HPJ start to blog about the LA release any minute now I'm hoping

    I see AutoCon have posted that the Type R will be presented on the MAIN-stage for 30 minutes.. Thats a bit of a lengthy presentation considering a lot can be said in 30 minutes.
