It's been known as Honda's nature to market an extremely large amount of Civic coupes as well as sedans. One small thing, it's almost none to bring about. American Honda Motor Co. spokesman – Chuck Schifsky, explains to Inside Line :
“Civic sales are down for one simple reason: Low dealer inventory as a result of a shortage of small parts caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake earlier this year, which nearly halted production of the 2012 Civic… This is a supply problem, not a demand problem. There just aren’t any Civics on dealer lots.”

Not to forget to mention the interior concept, a driver cockpit centric, with some high-end finishes. From any point, it's not even close to any reality to be production ready. (more…)
Ferrari 458 Spider would be the latest foreign-beauty two-door to proudly wear the Cavallino Rampante. For you who haven't know yet, Cavallino Rampante is Ferrari's famous symbol, literally translated to prancing horse. As Wikipedia described:
The famous symbol of the Ferrari race team is the Cavallino Rampante ("prancing horse") black prancing stallion on a yellow shield, usually with the letters S F (for Scuderia Ferrari), with three stripes of green, white and red (the Italian national colors) at the top.
