    Acura has shown the new Type S concept which previews the sportiest version of the next gen TLX. What do we all think? I personally am excited Acura is making some interesting and good looking products again. I had a feeling after the recent RDX release that they were headed in a good direction, the new TLX seems to solidify that fact. Now if they can nail the ILX and new MDX they'll have something good going. I'd still like to see them reintroduce a coupe model for a sporty entry below the NSX.

    Future Type S models coming? Most likely RDX... possibly ILX... a new flagship coupe/sedan would be nice as well.

    True to a point, though this car is going to be in a totally different price class, possibly close to double the cost of a CTR. People wanting similar performance can lightly mod an Accord 2.0T Sport much cheaper than the TLX Type S will cost. BUT if they do an ILX Type S i could see it being a slightly closer match (but still more expensive than the CTR)

    Looks amazing! But since it's Acura, the drawbacks I'm already predicting:

    - 0 chance of a manual transmission available
    - If it looks anything like the concept and comes with a turbo V6, that thing is gonna be $50,000 :(

    Given that the current TLX tops out shy of $50k, i'm thinking between $55-60k for the S Type. And being honda... they may ONLY offer a manual given their penchant for the Si and CTR only having manuals... but then i look at the NSX and it's automatic... so its really a toss up. With any hope they'll offer both.
