The Type-S is coming...

Two data points reinforce that we'll see the Type-S:

1: Acura's Type S Trim, NSX Supercar Set the Brand's Performance Bar

Jon Ikeda, the Acura Brand NA GM, said outright to MotorTrend that all future Acura models will get the Type-S treatment and that they're investing in the Type-S sub brand.

MT: Will all future models get a Type S?
That's the plan. The Type S is the sports derivative of all of our lineup. We need to focus on them. The equity we want to put on Type S is huge. Yes, we want to put Type S on everything, starting with the TLX.

2: The Temple of VTEC - Honda and Acura Enthusiasts Online - Articles - Thanks Jeff!: 2023 Acura Integra Rebirth of an Icon?

The Temple of Vtec has all but confirmed with well placed internal sources that a Type-S is on the way.

My question is, will it be Type-R based, or just bigger brakes, upgraded suspension and the Accord/TLX 2.0T with a 6-speed manual and 10-speed auto?

It's also what they had listed for 2022 in this leaked product roadmap.

That roadmap was from June of 2020. A lot has changed since then. So idk how hopeful I should actually be but if there is a Type S and it has a manual transmission I will definitely be trading up for it.
