Honda initially produced the Integra nameplate, known as the Acura Integra in North America, from 1985 to 2006, quickly achieving major cult status through the quirky grandeur of the three-door liftback coupe.
Imagine the surprise of most die-hard fans when Acura announced the revival of the Integra nameplate based on the eleventh-generation Civic compact.
Initial excitement turned to shock and horror when enthusiasts too discovered that the new Integra would skip the lifestyle three-door liftback coupe for a more practical five-door liftback.
Naturally, many were devastated and considered the 2023 Acura Integra to be a horrible successor compared to its predecessors.
Or, worse, they saw it as nothing more than a rebadged Honda Civic Si, destined to meet the same terrible fate as the ILX sedan it replaced.
Hopefully, there’s a glimmer of hope for the reborn Integra, as Acura is preparing to floor the pedal with more aggressive introductions of the Type S.
One is for the upcoming 2024 Acura ZDX electric SUV, while the other is for the Integra Type S, as both sporty variants were recently officially launched by the Japanese automaker.
Of course, the imaginative realm of virtual automotive artists doesn’t care, at least for now, about the 2024 Acura ZDX and its Type S performance variant being paired with GM’s Chevrolet Blazer EV and Blazer SS EV.
Instead, they only have digital eyes for the 2024 Acura Integra Type S, complete with some color body options.
That’s also the case for influential automotive virtual artist Jon Sibal, who’s back in the Acura mood and going through another attempt to make the Integra Type S cooler.
Acura Integra Type S 2024 rendering
Better known as jonsibal on social media, the pixel master initially envisioned the 2024 Acura Integra Type S, based on the official camouflaged prototype, which should come complete with over 300 hp to ensure it has the chance to surprise all reluctant Integra aficionados.
This rendering is equipped with a set of ten-spoke Rays CE28N aftermarket wheels and completes the tuning styling package with a bespoke rear wing of author design.
This is just wishful thinking for now, but we sincerely feel that Jon should go ahead with the plan to make the rear wing himself if Acura doesn’t provide an OEM option among the Type S’s official accessories.
After all, right now the five-door liftback needs all the help it can get to escape the three-door shadow of its predecessors.
