The problem is that enthusiasts are a very small, if not almost invisible, part of the overall car market.

The average car buyer does not car about performance - they care about reliability, looks, fuel economy, unnecessary features (bling) and brand/image. Morever, we in North America, have gotten much fatter and lazier over the last 20 years which is why cars with sporting intentions no longer sell. This is exemplified by the demise of manual transmissions (I don't care if a computer can shift quicker than I can - it's all about feel and control), the decline in engineering, feature creep, and weight gain.

The CR-Z is the only Honda car that's available with HID's from the factory. You'd think it could launch more than 3 times!

Nope you aren't getting old lol ... I believe 80% of the people would love the sports car made in the 90s.....

CRZ targets the wrong market
discontinue S2k
discontinue NSX

Honda sport car is rolling downhill

Be happy that Honda even has a sporty car. Toyota went from 3 turbocharged RWD and AWD sports cars to zilch... nada... nothing...
