We know it’s only a matter of time before Honda drops first details on an all-new upcoming Civic Si. But it seems that those details just can’t stay confined for long. New rumors are circulating regarding Honda’s hotted-up Civic—and they sound promising.

The rumors come by way of forum CivicX.com, and suggest that a new Si won’t be ready until late 2016 as a 2017 model. But wait, there’s more. Under the hood will be a detuned 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo carried over from the Civic Type R. Expected horsepower is somewhere near 220-230, and a six-speed manual will be the only option.

The rumors are very much in line with the Si’s lineage and Honda’s continued push to revive the Civic as the fun, affordable, front-wheel-drive vehicle that it is. There are still a few questions, though—specifically regarding the arrival of the Type R.

The rumor goes on to suggest that the Type R will be shown in early 2017, but may not be available to all markets per previously suggested. We do know that the Type R will be available in the U.S., so likely a very small portion of the market won’t receive the hotted up new vehicle.
