Default 2024 Acura Integra Type S: 320HP

The 2024 Acura Integra Type S will have 320 horsepower
That's 5 horsepower more than the Civic Type R
https://www.autoblog.com/2023/03/20/...20-horsepower/

Quote:
The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is launching this summer, but the teaser and information drip campaign is officially in full swing.

Acura just let on that the Integra Type S will produce 320 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. For reference, thatís 5 horsepower more than what the Honda Civic Type R makes ó its 310 pound-feet of torque figure is the same as the Type R. We make such a comparison, as all the information Acura has dribbled out so far about the Integra Type S has us thinking that itís going to be very similar to the Type R.

The second bit of information Acura revealed today is an approximate reveal window. The final car and all the specs we want are expected to drop at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. The race takes place over the April 14-16 weekend, and while we donít know exactly what day the Type S will be revealed yet, our bet would be for Friday or earlier that week, so Acura can show off the car in person to race fans all weekend long.

The teaser photos and teaser video (see directly above) give us a little design and sound preview for the Type S. Just like the camouflaged car, the undisguised version is rocking massive fender flares in both front and rear. These will allow Acura to fit the big 265-section-width tires it has in store for the Type S in addition to giving it a super-aggressive look. The photos also show off a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon mirror caps, a glimpse at the large rear diffuser and a prominent Type S badge on the front fender.

As for the sound preview, the Integra Type S breathes through a triple-outlet exhaust and sounds far more menacing than the Civic Type R does from the factory. There are even some loud pops and bangs on the overrun that you can hear. For those going frame-by-frame on the video, youíll also notice the car is painted in Acuraís Tiger Eye Pearl paint. Weíve seen this shade on both the TLX Type S and MDX Type S, so it looks like the trend is continuing for Type S models.

Look out for more teasers as we approach the final reveal for the Integra Type S, but you wonít have to wait long because the reveal is well under a month away now.

Yet another desirable vehicle that will be unobtanium due to limited production and ADM. Screw this market.

Considering this is like doubling the CTR production, it will make it easier to get one. Also the impending financial crisis that will most likely shake out around the 3rd/4th quarter this year will make things easy to get if you still have your job.

I hope you're right. Regarding the economy - we'll see. We're in uncharted territory and predictions swing wildly from "soft landing" to "smoking crater" on a daily basis. I've given up trying to predict what will happen and I'm hoping for the best while preparing for the worst. If things go south, I'll be focused on how to deploy dry powder and make money instead of buying cars.

You think it's obvious as to what is going to happen? I'm not sure what you mean by MSM's.

I think the Federal Bank has stated they won't stop raising rates until inflation is at 2% and the only thing that is going to get us to 2% is a recession. That's how I see it anyway.

I don't think these will be hard to get. When's the last time there was an Acura car that was hard to get? Even the original Integra Type R sat on dealer lots for a long time.

but now they sell for a huge premium. There's a generation of kids that looked up to cars like the integra type r that can now afford an integra type s, and might just jump at the opportunity.

Exactly. Demand for cars like the CTR/ITS is high, supply is low and prices reflect that imbalance. Like I said earlier, I'd love to be wrong.

I agree with the sentiment about the main stream media, BUT the underlying data is inconclusive and paints a confusing picture. Specifically, we're seeing inverted yield curves at the same time as historically low unemployment and strong consumer spending. It's possible that those are leading indicators and folks are hesitant to leave the club despite the lights being turned on and the music being turned off. JP sez - "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here". FWIW, I've hedged my bets by pulling a large amount of money out of the market and agree that there will be a downturn sometime in the second half of the year, but I don't have the hard data to back it up.

Regardless, it's going to be interesting.

Agree.

The car is likely going to sticker above $50k and like all of the other limited production, fun cars on the market right now, they'll be rare with a price jacked up to the moon.

shame really... these use to be affordable fun cars. My first new car was a 1999 integra GS-R. What an awesome car that was.

I remember when I was in high school, Integras were everywhere. Every form, shape, and trim. Coupe, sedan, LS, GS, GS-R, you name it. Now if I see one on the road, it's on its last legs. Feels sad man.

My second car was a 2006 RSX Type S which is technically an Integra in other parts of the world. I loved that thing. I really wish I could find a decent condition one, but that ain't happening in this used car market. They're either beat to hell or asking well over five figures for an almost 20 year old car.

I recently saw an integra running around with the jdm headlights, thing was in pristine condition, sounded pretty nice too. I feel like it'd just be a huge theft magnet to own something like that though. Gotta keep that garaged all the time.

I have a big soft spot for those older hot honda cars. I had a 90 accord so my introduction to car forums was on the honda stuff. I'm still really considering buying an s2k. After my recent snowboarding accident, I'm in this phase where I'm evaluating the physically risky things I do in my life and the motorcycle might be on the chopping block, but I'd want something fun to zip around in as an alternative. Probably would keep the cycle around for a year or so to make sure I was happy with my decision. Too bad Honda/Acura will probably not re-invent that car any time soon...

Not a Honda, but have you given the ND2 Miata a test drive? ~2,300lbs w/181hp vs. ~2,800lbs with 240hp in the S2000. They are going to feel very different, the Miata is what, 15 years newer? You'll probably spend similar or more money on a clean S2k that you would on a new Miata.

I really don't see Honda making another S2k either, which is too bad.

I have a soft spot for the Prelude too which seems to be the forgotten child out of the bunch. They had some models putting out close to 200hp which were good numbers for the day and age, although they were considered porky at the time compared to their siblings (2900lbs is nothing in today's weight though).

My parents' first luxury car was an Acura Legend that had a V6, power leather seats, a moonroof, and a telephone all of those things blew my mind at the time.

All of this is spot on. I enjoy my S2000, but I'd replace it with a ND1 or ND2 miata if something happened to it. I've owned at least one of each generation miata, some of which I've modified extensively (aftermarket FI, etc). The aftermarket for the miata is huge, providing everything from mild (asthetic stuff) to wild (V6/V8 swaps). I've been contemplating getting back into a modified ND, but I haven't been able to bring myself to sell the S2000.

My inlaws have an NC miata that I've driven around a bunch when we visit. It's okay to drive around, but just kinda felt meh to me. Not really a fan of the steering feel or pedal feel. Before I pull the trigger on an s2k, I'll definitely give a miata another shot to make sure I have a good comparison, but the honda fanboy in me says to get the s2k...

how many of these people are looking at inflation as an excuse though? the money they have in their pocket right now will never have the buying power it does today, so spend it while you can.

inflation corrected, 19,500 in '97 is about 37K today. Then consider the added performance and tech, and honestly the cars aren't that much more expensive than they used to be...

If you did contemplate selling the S2k, definitely take an extended test drive in the ND2, see if you can rent one on truro or something for a weekend to see how it feels to you. You could get really good money for your S2k, but if you really enjoy it, then why move on if you don't have to?

I was never a fan of the NC, it's probably the most livable & comfortable Miata to date, also the heaviest. NB used to be my favorite, ND was a return to form and might be my favorite now, would have to drive an MSM & ND2 back to back.

Good luck in your decision, if you do get an S2k post some pictures here, goes for an ND2 as well.

of course. I still can't walk, let alone operate a clutch pedal, I'm a solid 6 months minimum away from that, but hey, that'll put me to end of summer when convertibles start dropping in demand.

That's a great point and one of the reasons inflation is so difficult to bring down - it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.

I owned a ND1 Club (Brembo package) for a while, so it's a familiar platform. I drove a supercharged 2017 RF club last year and REALLY enjoyed it. It was more fun than the S2K, but the Honda feels special in a way that the miata doesn't. I've owned both at the same time and it's hard to describe unless you drive them back to back. The S2000 is very much a garage queen - it was only driven 1500 miles last year and hibernates 5-6 months of the year. Conversely, I throw winter rubber on the Miatas and drive them year-round. As a bonus, someone makes a receiver hitch for the ND, which would enable me to use it as my mountain biking chariot to/from the local trailheads.

First world problems.

Great example of turning lemons into lemonade, hope your recovery is smooth.

Do you have room for both? I mean the S2K is getting close to classic car status, it's value is likely to increase. Keep it in the garage, take it out for a spirited weekend drive every now and then, for everything else there's a Miata to pile the miles on and hoon in the snow.

There are cars I've had that I regret selling, I feel like the S2K would fall into that category.
