has anyone heard of this news yet? couple of shops here and the dealer in pasadena of honda (where i got my si) has informed me that, honda might discontinue the Si Coupe in 08. I have no idea how accurate this information is. I was hoping, does anyone else know much about this situation? From what i know, the sedan is only 60 lbs lighter and can do just as much as the coupe, and they're already making more sedans more than the coupe last i heard, so i dont know. Im kinda hoping for them to discontinue it, so my fg2 will be worth more :laughing: but to me coupe is definitely more sexy, if i hadnt gotten my Si, i would be pissed if they discontinue the coupe in 08 hahahah..anyways just wondering what everyone else thinks or heard about this situation.

that would be sweet, Si's should be made in 2 of the 4 years before they change the body style. to keep it limited.

Shame I don't believe they are stopping Si Coupe production for 08.

Oh well, I can dream!

i think it'd be a stupid move to do that, they sell too many to just discontinue them
They did it before...they discontinued the coupe and brought us the ultra-unpopular EP3...Wouldn't surprise me...

lol who knows, i think theres a higher demand in sedans now though. cause like i said it performs just as well as coupe, and it has a lot more room, who wouldnt want more room. on edmunds n motortrend, they make it seem like a obvious choice to go for the sedan that performs nearly "identical" to the coupe. i think theres a possibility it would be discontinued but its probably a small one, cause the new models are suppose to come out, if anything, honda should have word by now. But if somehow there aren't anymore coupe models coming out, i wouldnt be surprised....i would jump up in joy :D...the coupes sold quick cause they're in high demand, cause they're not made as much as sedans.

theres a difference between discontinuing the Si Coupe and introducing a hatch in its place it under the successing platform...

EM1 was 99-00 while 6th Gen was 96-00.

the EM1 lasted as long as it could, it would have been gone regardless...

9th generation should not come untill '11

I'd rather they discontinue it, fix all the **** that's wrong with it, and send each of us an ass-kissing apology letter for dealing with the 3rd gear bullshit.

I highly doubt the Si will be discontinued for 2008. Though I am curious as to why the Civic Sedan website was updated, but the coupe and Si models have not yet.

The sedan is not lighter the coupe is.

But I doubt the SI coupe would be discontinued because the coupe would give the sportier look over the sedan.

The coupes aren't near as in demand as the sedans are. They sit on the lot hear for days and days, the sedans are gone within 3 days tops.

I can see them quitting production on it, but not in 08.

You have that backwards, the coupes are in alot higher demand than the sedans are. You can go in and most of the time get a better deal on a sedan than a coupe.
