How would the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe look without all that tacky chrome? Much, much better.

A little bad photoshop on my part was all it took to take the Middle American conservativism out of the Civic and put a little Japanese earnestness back in to the design. To replace some of the Ohio in the car (American Honda is based not far from lovely Columbus) with a bit of Japan. That’s the part that made everyone love Hondas and reject their bloated American rivals in the first place.
