From the Rumor Mill: More Word that the Accord Concept Will Have a Turbo

We've recently heard a bit more on the Accord Concept that will be shown in Detroit early next month. It's beginning to look like the earlier suggestion that it would possibly be shown with a turbocharged motor could have some truth to it. Word has it that the concept includes a turbocharged motor, but Honda will assert that the turbocharger is only part of the concept. But there are other whispers suggesting that the turbo motor may actually make it to production, because there's talk that the turbo will be for the coupe model only.

Shhh.... Don't tell anyone else.
