    Word that. Well, hopefully we're looking too far into the exact text. Hopefully the 18 months is a carry over from some other press release. Hopefully we are surprised by Geneva...

    I love a coupe. The frame can be stronger, lighter, and stiffer than a 4-door or 5-door and I almost never have rear-seat passengers that would make the two extra doors worthwhile. Meanwhile, with the back seats folded down, a coupe will swallow all sorts of useful things like 5ft or even 6 ft ladders, bicycles, several big suitcases; and look good doing it. Why, with a coupe, you can make your car a regular trash barge. A hatch is even better for hauling stuff, and easier to see out of, but then there's those two extra doors I neither need nor want...

    Yay. Wonder if that means one car? Or a few? Either way I am happy. I want to see it in red. Preferably a touring. Or Ext I want to see if same rims or if coupe rims much sportier.

    I have a good feeling we will see a Type R prototype at Geneva.

    This is going to be an exciting 1.5 years with a new model introduced every few months... Si reveal in March 2016, Type R reveal in May 2017, and hatchback reveal somewhere in between. :spaz:

    It'll look pretty much like that just take away the Si pieces - larger front air intakes, wheels, rear spoiler, sporty rear bumper. Otherwise the overall shape will be just like that, because it's what we've seen in the coupe patent drawings.

    Patent drawings give a general idea but not as smooth as the finished product. So glad we get the official look next week!

    Great just in time for winter. I hope they do a faster rollout for the coupe since they've had time to ramp up production for the sedan. It should be mostly same stamping and assembly processes I would think given the same transmissions/powertrain/suspension and mostly the same body.

    I'll guess it will take as long as it took the Sedan. That was about 7-8 weeks from "Reveal" to "Release" right?

    Just so people are not set on the wrong ship, a majority of ALL vehicles will have a higher torsional rigidity with a sedan body versus a coupe. I know this to be the case through actual numbers for the E46 and 8thgen line up of vehicles.

    AFIK it has to do with the B pillar section of the frame.

    Either way, looking forward to seeing this coupe! Might have reason to hit the LA auto show this year
