Default Factory supercharged CR-Z. Would you drive it?

Honda HPD Supercharged CR-Z Concept is the one we've been longing for

Nothing set in stone but it's an interesting idea. What do you guys think? 185HP and 169lb/ft in a sub 2700lb package seems like it would put the performance in-line with the Civic Si. I personally like the way the CRZ looks and would probably rock this as a DD if the price was right.

I thought the CRZ was supposed to be a hybrid. Not a 185 hp super charged street car. But yes I would drive it. I like how they look.

A) The price will be high.
2) It will still have Insight suspension.
III) Anyone who doesn't realize that it's a slower more expensive version of an RSX Type-S is just obviously blind.
3) (I don't care that I did 3 twice, it's my list) It'll probably still have the regenerative braking crap that grabs really hard on initial bite and then tapers off, which is just about the most annoying thing.
E) I don't wanna look like a pretentious trendy green peace loving douche nozzle, you know the type of person that always has the latest I-phone and sneakers that have never been worn in mud.
6) It still won't get super impressive gas mileage.
LAst) Most importantly, I can't afford it.

No, I wouldn't drive it.


Thanks, I haven't made a good "Why I hate the CR-Z" post in a long while.

I'd drive it, but that says more about my willingness to drive anything than the providence of the car.

Eh, I mean it's 2.5" wider and 12" longer than the CRX...and I'm sure it's a hell of a lot safer.

A curb weight of 2650lbs is pretty darn good these days for any car IMO.

restore a real crx for half the price and smoke it with twice the mileage. or buy a veloster and have a more functional car with a turbo and 100,000 mile warranty. (they are over 3,000 lb tho)

^This. I'd still take a Veloster Turbo over that. I drove a CRZ for an hour or two (I think Abide drove it too lol) and it was terribly slow and not fun.

not impressed by it, another money grab if you ask me.

I like the way the crz looks, but until either it loses about 700 pounds, or gains about 60 hp, it wont be worth it to me.

used s2k for 14k$
4k$ turbo kit
?????
profit.

I really think if had just not "gone green" and the hybrid system with all the extra weight, yet kept the start/stop technology, they could've achieved the same mpg and been a much quicker car!
