    While I will say the sedan is more practical this really has me curious "slightly more aggressive body styling, nose design and grill" along with the connected tail lights the 17th can't come soon enough!

    This article sounds like they're just guessing at most stuff.

    The coupe's nose and grill were revealed in official patent images months ago and they look the same as the sedan's. Connected tail lights are gonna be stunning though.

    I hesitated to post the Torque article but thought I would anyway. Have no clue as to the accuracy as Honda is being deliberately secretive. Our local dealer is currently very low on 2015 Civics.

    That is a good point, really the only differences I can tell is maybe a couple inches shorter and the connected tail lights.

    I hope no one is expecting the coupe to look like that image in the article. The fact they don't even reference the image in the article is suspicious. If it was a leak or anything significant I'm sure the whole article would have been about it.

    With any luck the rumors about it's debut on the 17th are true. And an on sale date by early/mid december.

    That's a good thing since the sedan looks good. And even though the front half of the coupe will be very similar, it'll have more rake and lower roofline which will look even sportier.

    Actually, not wishful thinking alone... Torque News has reported that their insider from honda said that yes, the coupe would be on sale before the end of the year and would debut at the LA show next week. After some digging their sources were deemed reliable by another forum rep. So it's actually looking like it's reality and not just me hoping and praying. lol

    Torque News isn't what I'd call a solid news source by any stretch, especially when all they can cite is "insider". Anyone can make news up and say they have an insider source. This site pointed out that there's no Honda press conference or presentation scheduled for LA show, which there'd likely be if a reveal was coming.

    The show is in a week so we'll see soon. I think we all getting stir crazy from lack of coupe news from Honda hah.
