Insight to CRX?

I think everybody has thought it once or twice since the Insight came out, when is somebody going to make it a CRX? There's been photoshopped pics, and people have been talking, but nothing more than idle "yeah, it'd be cool" chit-chat. Does anybody know of anybody doing it? And I really don't know how hard it would be to swap a civic engine in or something, but I think with a body kit and loss of fender skirts, it could be a really nice looking CRX. What does everybody else think?

If I was gonna mod an Insight, I'd keep the outside stock. I remember something about the Insight having the lowest coefficient of drag of any car out right now. Other than that moddin' out an Insight would be sweet.

Yeah, it would be nice to have the low coefficient of drag, but I think I'd pay the few extra cents in gas to get rid of the goofy side fender skirts. And to get some nice wheels.

You guys think the insight looks like a 5th generation crx too!?! It resembles it greatly. I want to see one with the wheelcover thing off and with a b16a and some nice rims.

Thumbs up CRX to Insight and Del Sol to S2000

What i personally think is that they wanted to bring the CRX back but with a different name(Insight). I also think they wanted the del sol back but named it the S2000. Both of the cars look like they could be a newer version of each other. I mean, the Insight looks like a newer CRX and the S2000 looks like a newer Del Sol.....Just a thought though.

For the hassle of making the Insight look nicer, I'd prefer to get a CRX. If I had the money to afford an electric car, and run it than it would be an option, but not in that disgusting green snot colour

CRX and insight look the same but actually the del sol and S2000 are all descendents of the CRX.
