2008 Honda Accord
While Honda is working on its new Accord other cars in its class like the Toyota Camry are booming in sales. Toyota’s new Camry has been accepted by sports sedan lovers and the hybrid version is being applauded by enviromentally concious drives. That being said and competition from the new Nissan Altima (with a coupe version on the way) the new Honda Accord has a lot to live up to. So far there have been some photo renderings of the 2008 Honda Accord but the official production design is due in 2007. The car will have a larger wheel base with some design elements of the new Civic. Other then that the car is expected to be close to these photo renderings you see here. There will also be a new coupe launched as well.

There are also rumors of a new Honda Accord hybrid due out by 2009

That's a RL/TL with a Honda badge. Bland.

By 2009 nobody will give a crap about hybrids. Even Toyota admitted that hybrids have very little future when they bought stake in Isuzu last week to gain their diesel technology.

Looks good. Has elements of the IS350 and A4.
:werd: It looks good though. If it has some goodies that the TL and RL have and can maintain the concept look and be affordable, I think it may be a good competition for the new gen Camries.

I know some people in my company have seen the new Accord Coupe...apparently it looks A LOT like the G35 Coupe
Well, if the Altima rumors are true then I guess there's going to be two Japanese coupes that resemble the G coupe, but with two different badges.

Are you talking about the '07 Altima? Cause it doesnt look like a G at all imo.

Motor Trent just ran a preview article about it that says its basically the same look, although the panels might all be different. Tailights are the only easy way to discern it from a current gen altima

Honda Accord Coupe Concept @ 2007 NAIAS

Honda Accord Coupe Concept to Debut at North American International Auto Show
A bold new look for the next-generation Honda Accord Coupe will be unveiled at the January 2007 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The Accord Coupe Concept will convey exterior styling cues and design features that provide a first look at the direction the next-generation Accord will take and it promises to set a new benchmark for Accord and for the segment. The Accord is Honda's best selling model in North America, and this vehicle's debut at NAIAS will mark the first time an Accord concept car has ever been shown at a major auto show.

Car and Driver magazine recently named the current-generation 2007 Honda Accord as one of the winners of its prestigious and highly competitive annual "10Best Cars" award. The Accord has achieved "10Best" status 21 times in the 25 years that Car and Driver editors have been conducting the competition, more than any other vehicle in the award's history.

I agree, but it still looks cool to me.

I love concept cars! Too bad they never get built. Imagine this car raised up higher than Steve Erkel's pants and the roof line 50% taller so people can see out, and that's what the production car will be like. Just take the 2007 Accord, make the trunk lid joints vertical, chop the pointy ends off the tail lights, make four holes in the rear bumper and voila! (Not that that would necessarily be a bad thing - man those tails are fugly!) --> http://automobiles.honda.com/images/banners/2007/accord_coupe/exterior_gallery/large15.jpg
