Honda has so done rwd before.
NSX, S2000, S800/S600/500, Acty, all those motorcycles. those F1 cars, you know?
An inexpensive independent-suspension rwd platform would be almost old-hat for Honda.
Picture it! Imagine. Visualize.
Honda has so many names, I select Domani for the moment. The Honda Domani 1600, hopefully under $17.5k...
That’s right. I moved the front wheels up and shrunk the trunk on a 2006 Civic. Squint a touch if you like, go for it. I would hope it would have dual wishbone suspension front and back, even if trunk space would probably be screwed. (Hail Paint! All hail Paint.)
