    Wow. That car sucks. It looks exactly like a prius.

    Why the fuck cant they make lambo / ferrari / something sporty looking hybrids. Why do they have to be so freakin ugly?!

    the first one is a prius. sometimes they use other cars just to test the drivetrain.
    i saw a dodge viper with what looked like an old 280z front clip that mercedes was using to test out an engine. i'll find it tomorow and post it up.

    but its till ugly and way to similar.

    Porsche is known for using the Golf and Lupo to test new drivelines here.

    Maybe Honda is doing something similar with the Clarity.







    Or maybe not, and they 'stole' the design for the prius just to piss you folks off. heh.

    maybe the folks at honda suck ass, and are so busy trying to be toyota that they forgot all of the ideals that made them the company that they are (or were up till 2000), and stopped making fuel efficient fun to drive vehicles, and now are only interested in making lame ass neutered mass marketable cars that even grandparents find tame and boring... maybe all of us holding onto the history of this company who has obviously turned their back on us are idiots,

    ive been saying it for years... old man honda died in 2000 and the company died with him

    I agree too, i love my B powered 1990 sex machine, thats a HONDA to me, not my GF's 06 civic, its all plastic and nazi fuel efficiency, aftermarket parts for the newer cars are fewer, harder to get or dont exist. Plus the newer cars are all looking the same.

    they arent even really fuel efficient
    the 2008 civics are rated for 26/34 , 25/36 , 21/29
    :thumbsdown:

    the fit isnt much better with 28/34 , 27/34 , 27/33
    :thumbsdown:

    Find a Car

    dont buy into the bullshit when the car commercials tell you 28mpg is "fuel efficient"
