Neal's Fantasy Factory churns out the 2012 Civic Si Hatchback Concept

I'm beginning to think that Neal was hoping for something different from the 2012 Civic lineup. Here's another one of his ideas.



Neal would also like for you to look for:

  • True "One Motion" design.
  • Shortened front and rear overhangs.
  • Tinted headlamps w/clear corners.
  • Revised a-pillar garnish w/kink.
  • Lowered ride height w/18" wheels.
  • Cleaner rocker panels
  • Slightly lowered roof line.
  • Extended rear passenger windows
  • Slightly wider stance.
  • More orange in color.
  • Factory tint.

    ...and a happier blue sky!
