Well, this is big news. I wonder if prostitution will move to North America and if there will be a delay in future deliveries?

It's unclear where it will be produced but as of last week, I heard that the Type R is confirmed for next gen Civic.

It would be an impossibly dumb move [even for Honda] to stop making the CTR, given the amount of positive spin it has garnered since being introduced!

Oh, and it's such a great car regardless.

This is the problem with media these days, always sensationalize things. Honda Europe division is bleeding, almost to the point they have no blood left and this is just the final nail in the coffin. The Civic Type R unlike the NSX is a great exercise in production efficiency and marketing. It's based on a mass produced product and outside its engine and transmission, everything is off the shelf. Also, it sells.

Front axle on the CTR isn't "off the shelf", but I agree, when Honda goes back to it's original philosophy of producing engineering exercises, rather than "bean counter" products, we can all be happier.

Of course it doesn't necessarily follow that we will all be happy with the product..........
