I suppose they could build the Civic Type R and on the next assembly line add AWD with different exterior/interior bits and sell it as an RSX. That way they sell enough combined to make it somewhat worth their while as well provide a reason for people under 50 years old to actually step into an Acura dealership. That way they can cancel the current NSX and pretend it never happened.
