Actually somewhat excited about this.

Though I have a very strong suspicion that it will have an 8sp auto and weigh 3200 lb

(FYI in 1993 a GS-R cost $17,000, which inflation adjusted is roughly $32,000 today.)

hard to have high hopes when they made a limited run nsx in greater numbers than they move of the base, while making it uglier

Seems more and more likely that the new Integra is going to be a 4 or 5 door "coupe". (I didn't realize the camo covered coupe/hatchback spy shot was a fake).

If so just...just GTFO.

They should have just kept calling it the ILX, because that's what this is.

will 100% be overpriced.

Should have been base with the 2.0T from the Accord, at current pricing, but remove the dumbassery and allow the manual on the base model, not only attached to $6000 worth of bullshit.

Then a Type S (Acura will never again label something Type R) using the existing CTR's 2.0T engine. Maybe with SH-AWD to actually differentiate from the Honda.

Why do all Acura interiors still look like they're from 2013 2009?

No idea where your source of criticism is coming from. The interior is the high point of most Acuras' styling these days.

Quote :
"IN A WORLD dominated by digital text, Tom Hanks collects manual typewriters and uses them for personal correspondence. The actor is well known as a typewriter connoisseur. It’s a thing, apparently.

As someone who typed a master’s thesis on a snapping, thumping Royal desk model, I cannot fathom Hanks’s nostalgia. Carbon paper, correction liquid, spools of inky cloth unraveling in the desk drawer. The best day of my scholastic life was the day WordPerfect came out.

And yet typewriter swap meets draw thousands every year, as a new generation discovers its parents’ lo-fi, analog and mechanically actuated pleasures.

The 2024 Acura Integra Type S—equipped with a six-speed, three-pedal manual transmission, and nothing but—makes a bid for these old souls. By the stopwatch, the very same car with an automatic transmission would be quicker and faster around a racetrack, more versatile and more efficient. In fact, during my weeklong stint, the observed fuel economy was quite dismal. That’s on me. Flogging the Type S around town, I would often leave it hanging at high revs, trumpeting off- and on-throttle, lagging and surging, merely to amuse my reptilian brainstem. GRRRRRRrrrr.

Acura reintroduced the Integra sedan to the U.S. in 2022 after a 16-year absence. The Type S is the top-spec street-performance package, swapping the standard-issue 1.5-liter, 200-hp four with the devil’s own sewing machine: a turbocharged 2.0-liter, 320-hp inline four (aluminum block and head with iron-sleeved cylinders) running at 9.8:1 compression ratio, and a 7,000-rpm redline. The torque curve bulges at mid-tach (310 lb-ft between 2,400-4,500), giving the Type S a delightful lack of linearity.

This engine loves the lash. A lightweight forged crankshaft and connecting rods, mono-scroll turbocharger, electric wastegate and low-mass flywheel all help minimize turbo lag and rotational inertia.

There’s not a lot of back pressure to worry about, either. The large-caliber exhaust piping passes through a modest resonator and then the thoroughly immodest center-mounted triple exhaust ports (with sport-exhaust bypass valve) below the license plate. If this car had hair it would be a mullet.

SHIFTING ALLIANCE The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is the only car in its class to offer a conventional manual transmission. It is also the only four-door liftgate in the premium sport compact class, with rivals including BMW M235i xDrive, Audi S3 and Mercedes-AMG C43. Photo: Acura
Weighing a trim 3,219 pounds, the Type S’s chassis bits include forged alloy control arms and coilover adaptive dampers, with big stinking wheels and summer tires, backed by Brembo two-piece front brake rotors and four-piston monoblocks.

The press release notes that the Type S is the only four-door liftgate in its class without observing that the class itself has gotten less crowded lately. Acura sees the Type S being cross-shopped with heady four-door Eurotoys like the BMW M235i xDrive, Audi S3 and Mercedes-AMG CLA45. Maybe. In addition to its manual gearbox, the Type S audience is further self-selected by front-wheel drive, with no option for all-wheel drive. How many could Acura hope to sell?

The answer appears to be enough for now and perhaps for the balance of the decade, or until the costs of emissions compliance overtake the Type S’s returns. Built on the same line as other Integras, in Marysville, Ohio, and sharing its mechanical essence with the bewinged Honda Civic Type R, the Type S probably has a fairly attainable break-even in sales.

You’ll find it easily in the employee lot. It’s the one that looks angry.

It’s perhaps worth noting that the Type S is one of, if not the best-handling, hardest-cornering, raunchiest front-drive cars I’ve ever driven. Holy hell. This little skiff will tack hard enough to throw your gear overboard. The usual constraints that affect front-drive cars’ performance and handling—front weight bias (here 62/38), torque steer and understeer—are addressed, first and foremost, with magical enchanted rubber: Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 265/30R19s on 9.5×19-inch lightweight rims. With these tires I could have won the 1979 Le Mans in a Dodge Aries.

The front end’s dual-axis suspension geometry helps sharpen steering response and nullify torque steer; the helical front limited-slip differential puts the power where you want it. Zero-to-60 mph acceleration times, hovering in the fives, really depends on the driver. How are your speed-shifting skills, madam?

You’ll have no trouble spotting it in the employee lot. It’s the one that looks angry. The Type S gets a quartet of bulging fenders to go with its wider track and street performance rubber. The makeover also comes with a distinct front fascia—the hyper-focused physiognomy Acura calls the Diamond Pentagon grille—and the bulging, vented hood. The rear aspect is all about the center-mounted triplets.

You plop down in the deep-bolstered, tightly tailored driver’s seat. Out of habit you jiggle the stubby, leather-gaitered shifter knob, feeling for Neutral, then lever the clutch pedal to the floor and push the Start button.


SMOOTH MOVE The 2024 Acura Integra Type S interior includes leather-trimmed sport seats with perforated Ultrasuede inserts. Perforated leather trim with contrasting stitching wraps the steering wheel and gear shift knob. The Type S logo appears on the steering wheel, shifter boot surround and the front seat head restraints, seen here. Photo: Acura
Unlike the emotionally inert computer on your desk or even the Tesla Model 3 in your garage, the Type S blooms with syncopated mechanical energy, reaching you through your hands and haunches. As you rap the throttle, the vibrations quicken. Do you like that, baby? Huh, huh?

In other cars, you select D and drive off. In the Type S, you must judge many things all at once: surface traction, incline, surrounding traffic and the timely unweighting of the clutch pedal and reciprocal pressure on the gas. For many drivers, this monkey-work is fun, stress-relieving, even a bit hypnotizing, helping them to escape into the oblivious mindfulness of motoring. Long before ASMR meditation videos, there was the proverbial drive to the store.

There is also what might be called machine love: a scientific curiosity, even morbid fascination, with the behavior of tightly bound dynamical systems running at ultra-fine tolerances on the edge of calamity. Did I mention the 7,000-rpm redline? For people like us, life is one big failure-mode analysis.

My old Royal was a hoss. The damn thing could take your finger off (harder keystrokes meant clearer carbon-paper copies).

Like my old Royal, the Type S makes an impression"
