The common thought was that the Civic Type R wasn't coming to America, but we now have a clue that suggests otherwise. A New Jersey Honda dealer has said on Facebook:

"Coming 02.03.2015 here at Sussex Honda!

Sussex Honda is in Newton, NJ, and that is in the US. Is Sussex Honda lying through its teeth, or will it actually receive the Type R on the 3rd of February.

There is a weekly limit of 1,000 points, and every 750 points you get you’ll unlock another Type R milestone... and there may be extras along the way!
those milestones they mention just better not be some insignificant crap, which there's a good chance it might be.

So they are advertising the CTR but it still isn't being sold in America? Isn't that a little cruel of Honda?

I bet if they were later into the process with it, we'd probably see a superbowl commercial on it.

I'm still confused by this.
their bit.ly link redirects to the redline CTR site, which is a hub for the launch campaign...

I doubt their social media person (if they even have one, might just be a social secretary) bothered to investigate, or they were simply trying to insert themselves into the CTR hype machine...

So basically it was a mistake is what you're saying. Because I just don't see why you would advertise a campaign for a car that is not ever going to come to NA. That just doesn't make sense.
