Brenda has snagged so many spyshots of the 2012 Civic we're dipping into next year's spy photo budget. This time we have the first shots of the all-new 2012 Civic Si Coupe. Enjoy!

UPDATE 6:35PM These were sent with the same caption as the preceding sets of sedan pics, but Brenda was aware that this was an Si seen in these shots. She just sent out the following updated caption.

UPDATED CAPTION: '12 Civic Coupe Si SPIED!!

We've been shooting regular Honda Civic prototypes for the last several days, but today, we've got HOT version -- the Si Coupe!

One look at the larger, sportier wheels, chrome exhaust tip and the honey-comb grill inserts are enough to tell us this is the Si model! Fortunately, we also got a peek inside and can see sport seats featuring large bolsters, red stitching and a piece of tape over the "Si" on the seat back! We think a spoiler is the only part not yet on this Si prototype.

Originally, the 9th gen Civic was set to debut in the Summer of 2010 as a 2011 model, but once CAFE regulations changed and the auto industry hit hard times in 2009, Honda had to rethink things. Rumors stated Honda originally wanted to make the Civic larger, but as you can see from the photos, the overall size of the 2012 Civic will remain largely unchanged.

While the camouflage is pretty heavy, we can see peeks at a new grille and headlights. The front end looks more upright overall as well. The doors also have some fresh character lines.

While the current Civic has a 1.8L 4-cylinder, rumors are floating around that the base motor may get bumped to 2.0L. No rumors yet on what might be lurking under the Si's hood. Stay tuned..
Actually, there was a rumor that Honda was stuffing a K24 under the hood of the Si, but we've heard no further confirmation on that one.
