Hey, it's a pleasure to join you fellow CR-Z fanatics. I'm a retired race driver and car collector currently driving a 2000 S2000. When I saw the photos from the 2007 Tokyo Auto Show and read about the concept, I went into the local Honda dealer in January 2008 and placed a deposit for the first CR-Z delivery. Of course they had no idea of what I was talking about but took my money anyway. I go by every couple of weeks to tell them the latest news about the CR-Z and show them the latest photos. I'm sure they think I'm some kind of nut (and of course I am) but they put up with me anway..
I look forward to the production release of the CRZ. I owned a CRX back in the mid 80's, I loved it. And I fully expect to own a CRX by this time next year!
I have owned dozens of really cool cars through the years, and have found the looking forward to owning them can be as much fun as the actual ownership. I remember first hearing about the Acura NS-X being developed back in 1987 when I bought the original Legend Coupe. For three years I devoured every piece of information I could get about the NSX. Then when it was released in September of 1990, I was devastated that the demand had set the market price at $80,000 to $100,000.
It took me another 5 years to obtain my first NSX, but in the mean time enjoyed some other really fun rides like the second gen RX7 Convertible and the MR2 turbo. I still own an NSX and also a 2009 Honda Fit which I consider one of the best engineered cars on the market today.
The CRZ will likely replace my wife's Mini Cooper convertible.
Here's to all the cool cars past present and future.
I hop that Honda expressed the CR-Z's sporty concept with the large radiator grill and sleek press lines on the sides, etc. Honda Motor Co Ltd has showcased the sporty design "CR-Z" hybrid car that focuses on driving at Tokyo Motor Show.
My name is Hege, and I'm a 26 year old girl from Norway!
I've been a Honda enthusiast since I got my first car, which was a 1984 Civic GL Sedan!
My second car, which is my daily driver, is a Honda CRX EE6 (a pretty rare model which has a 1,4 litre dual carb engine and automatic transmission!)
In the later years I've got myself a CRX ED9 (1,6 liter DOHC -D16Z5 engine) and the last i bought was a EE8 (1,6 liter DOHC VTEC -B16A1 engine).
I work shifts at a gas station to make enough money to buy parts and stuff for my cars
Off course, as a CRX enthusiast I had to fall in love with the CR-Z!
I love it's design, the fact that they've brought back and given new life to the old "pocket rocket" is just so great! Can't wait until the day I see it live, and hopefully having one on my own
Been searching the internet for CR-Z pictures and videos all night now, and when bumping into this forum, I knew I had to register!
Hi everyone! My name is Mike and I personally have owned 13 Hondas (including 1 Acura NSX) since I was 16 (I'm 46). What can be said about Honda that hasn't already been said. My first Honda was a 1974 Civic that I inherited from my older brother in 1979. We beat that car up pretty good, but it survived.
My daily driver now is a 2000 5 speed Honda Insight that has almost 250K miles. The Insight is a purpose built (mileage) car, but like most Honda's, is also fun to drive. I actually autoxed the Insight for 2 seasons in San Diego. The Insight did great, but I'm sure the CR-Z will do even better.
By the time the CR-Z comes out my California carpool stickers will be expired (January 2011), so that timing should correspond quite nicely with the release of the CR-Z.
I'm Chan and I'm very interested in this new CRZ, Im 23 and I currently drive an EP3. I do have to commute alot so this was sorta the answer to my prayers, I just hope that it is as fun to drive as my EP3 and is much more fuel efficent. I can't wait to hear about the test drives. GO Honda !

this is Dave from Germany. Never owned a Honda before, the CRXses were dream cars I could not afford at the time they were in production. Hoping the CRZ's looks will be matched by the drive, checkbook is ready .
PS: my workplace is next to the Honda R&D Europe site, but no CRZ sightings yet.
