Mazda Will Cease Production of RX-8 After 2011

Posted by Joel
Looks like Mazda's rotary-powered will be coming back after 2011. Mazda sold only 128 RX-8s in April of 2010 for a total of 428 year to date. The Wankel-engined sports car was recently refreshed in 2009 and currently meets all U.S. emissions standards. This 1.6 liter underpowered sports car is not going to be missed. It didn't live up to the expectations left by the RX-7. It's been rumored that the RX-7 is in production. It will be rotary powered and should arrive sometime in calendar year 2013.

Lexus LF-A Hybrid in the Works?

Posted by Joel
LeftlaneNews spy photographers have snapped a few photos of a Lexus LFA prototype. Since the Lexus LFA has been out for a while it's interesting that Lexus might be working on something new. The Lexus LFA prototype camouflage depicts fake panels especially in the front fender near the A-pillar. Normally when we see a piece of camouflage like this, it's often hiding a port of some kind. GM’s plug-in hybrid test mules have been spotted with a similar camo patch. Since Toyota/Lexus have been pioneers in hybrid technology it would be nice to have a hybrid sports car on the market.

So Long to a JDM Icon. Honda Ends Civic Type-R Production

Posted by Joel
Honda has been known for a couple things, it's performance super car the Acura NSX, the S2000 convertible and it's Type-R branded vehicles. I remember back in the days, ricer cars would put Type-R badges to feel special... But owning an actual Type-R was something special. You get suburb suspension, a high revving motor, and decent horsepower. Now Honda has confirmed that it is ending production of it's Honda Civic Type-R 4 door vehicle. The Civic Si is the closest thing we had to the Type-R since Integra. There's no word if another Civic Type R is in the works, especially with Honda's larger focus on hybrid cars taking up most of the research and development money.
