I'll add this to the "I'll believe it when I see it" category. The return of the CRX has been rumored since its demise. If it happens, that'd be awesome. I'm not holding my breath.
True, but this is the first time the info has come from (supposedly) someone at Honda.

Yeah, I've never driven a new one. Last experience had like 150K miles (forget) on it at the time and it didn't handle for crap... but I'm sure the worn out suspension and tires were the reason for that (hood paint wasn't exactly snazzy either if thats an indicator).
When they were new, did they actually spend the money for decent dampers and what not on a ultra-economy car like that?

autoweek has been posting some pretty questionable stories in the past week (that don't seem to have any supporting evidence.) While I would like to believe that the CRX could return, I won't be holding my breath.

same here. I really liked the car as it being the only one on the block, but as for handling, ride comfort, and performance are u kidding? The crx had more problems than any honda enthusiast is willing to admiit. There I said it ';)

IMO CRXs were only cool after extensive modification. Stock they seem like a POS to me.
Still the best handling car I've ever owned. Stock.
I like them and the one I got to drive had manual steering..that was kinda werid but cool at the same time

More importantly, who cares? Is it gonna be better than the Si or Type-R that they're supposedly building? Bah..

where did the article say they are making a 1988 CRX in 2008?

I'm pretty sure any modern safty regulations would be applied to it's design....
