Well I wouldn't say they would have to stop making it, but Type S is Acura's new pride and joy so it would kind of defeat it's purpose if they just brought out something better. That's why American Honda didn't jump on the DC5-R immediately and put it into Acura's line. They wanted to seperate Acura more as a uniform luxury car line, and the Type R totally blows that image out of the water.mugenintegra3 on June/18/02 said:Yea, wouldnt the Type R defeat the purpose of having the Type S? Because then they will have to stop making the Type S and then all the Acuras wouldnt be uniformed(with the names). So then they might as well call it the Integra again.
