My Honda tech, who is also a SiR owner and fan, suggests that we'll see this in the show rooms by the end of the year. Perhaps he has advanced service manuals?
He's not let me down before and he knows his stuff and my interest in the CR-Z. He suggests waiting.
Whatever happens, I hope Honda keep the same shape for the CR-Z.
If you look at all the rumors floating around on reputable sites, you'll find that the next gen of crz is planned for like 2017/18. Now, who knows, it could come sooner than that, but there's no way it's coming by the end of the year. That'd just be ridiculous given the information that's been floating around or lack thereof more specifically.
