What ever happened to the CRX?

I remember about a year ago everybody was talking about the CRX concept for late 2004 or early 2005, now all of the sudden everybody dropped it. It's coming on late 2004 and i haven't heard any news or press releaes from honda. Did they just abandon the idea of bringing back one of their most brilliantly engineered cars?

Sure the stock CRX was a lump of crap that could barely keep up with corrola wagons and mini-vans. But they are Hondas, and because of that it is ridiculously easy to do an engine swap and put some power into the 1800 pound chasis. Not only that but its a cheap car, you can find one in decent condition for $800 and swap a ZC(the stock engine in japan with 135 horse and 120 torque)for only $600. not a lot of power, but a pretty fast daily driver that you can take "pep boy tuned" civics with. Also 2nd gen rex's came with hondas legendary dual wishbone suspension that allowed for easy and cheap suspension mods, this all allows for a Cheap, reliable car that could waste a lot of those Auto-zone-upgraded-wannabe-racers-that-watched-the-fast-and-the-furious-and-went-to-buy-a-civic-put-colored-windshield-wipers-on-and-said-they-were-street-racer types out there.

But anyway, back to the topic. Does anyone know what happened to the CRX concept? thanks.
