Acura has been laying pretty low with its products and unfortunately, some of the more recent models have been a hit or miss. It’s a shame too since Acura was one of the 1st Japanese luxury brands that prided themselves for being wonderful alternatives to the European industry leaders. Some examples that come to mind are the Legend, the original TL Type-S, and the phenomenal Acura CL luxury sports coupe.

But it’s been almost 6 years since Acura has produced a coupe of some sort and with their competitors continuing to lead in the segment such as the Audi A5, BMW 3-Series, Infiniti G37 and more recently, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and the Cadillac CTS Coupe, Acura is long over due for a coupe of some sort.

Now, I’m not here to get your hopes up as there has been almost no speculation for an Acura coupe. And reasons why Acura haven’t planned a coupe are unknown as us enthusiast know that they are very much capable of producing one.

Do you think Acura should produce a TL Coupe? Cast your vote below.


Either way, a member on Acura’s online enthusiast community spotted a photoshop of what a current Acura TL Coupe, or CL successor would potentially look like. And I can’t help but think that Acura seriously needs to get on board with this idea because well, look at it! While the TL is either a love it or hate it design, it’s almost guaranteed that chopping off 2 doors on any sedan can yield epic results.

Sure Acura’s controversial face could be reworked during the time it would take to research, develop and produce one. Not to mention, if they were to follow through, it would definitely make the mid-sized luxury sports coupe segment far more interesting.

What say you egmCarTech followers? The idea of a CL successor certainly does wet our appetites. And the idea of a new CL Type-S makes it even more enticing. If you Honda/Acura boffins are reading this, please do it!

i don't think there's anything wrong with making a TL coupe, just not for this generation TL.

wait for the launch of the next gen TL which will hopefully have all new, and better looking, design language, a new engine, and several trim levels which would include a coupe version.

I think any of these coupes would be nice..Acura just needs a shot of something nice and sporty before it's too late.

had a 2011 TL sh-awd today as a loaner.

I say scrap the car all together, not one thing about it impresses me.
they need to go back to the drawing board.

Why would anyone buy a TL coupe? It's the same car just a pia to get in and out of! Maybe Acura should try something similar to an s2000 setup, rwd, turbo or supercharged, which would come with a soft top and hard top. Price it around 35-40K?

How about an all new V6 SH-AWD CL? But unless they price it very competitively I doubt it would sell well competing against ze germans. All you know Acura wont bother and just add another goddamn crossover.
