Who can we believe anymore? Reports surface that certain vehicle programs are dead and then days later differing reports come out. Earlier this week, Autocar claimed that Honda had killed the V8 engine program and RWD Acura’s. Now Jeff Conrad, Vice President of Acura as informed dealers that the Acura “tier 1” program is still in the works.

According to Conrad the NSX program is officially dead, but the much needed V8 engine and RWD programs are still moving forward. It’s rumored that Acura is working on a large RWD, V8 powered sedan to go head to head with the Germans.

It’s still not known if the other reports about the death of the S2000 are in fact true.
