Yes chabbu, it would have been the 4 door since as far as I know there never was a Civic saloon. Also a 4 door would also be what the Chinese people would want to buy, and I guess the people of the USA too. The 4 door is the red one I posted pictures of above.chabbu said:I thought that I read somewhere on the MG-Rover.org forums that Nanjing would be able to build either the 4 or 5 door (I can't recall which) 45/ZS but that Honda had all the rights to the other bodystyle. Does anyone else (Windy?) remember this?
I don't know if that story was true though - seems a little unlikely to me.
Once again, I have seen a report containing a statement from someone important at Nanjing saying that they have talked to Honda and there is no problem.
And by the way Real_I_Hate_China, Honda didn't take the drawings from Longbridge - they burned them!
SAIC spead a lot of gossip about who owned the IP, most of it was untrue.
