No I don't think it does. unless you give it a new name. It's been known as Plelude till 2001. Since then I don't think honda came up with any replacement for it. ie: Acura Intrega Coupe Acura RSX, Intrega Sedan=TSXDon't ever compare Honda with Hyunda, you are comparing Japan with Korea. Just use an original logo "H" or costom make one or use the "Si" symbol for any of the latest Honda models. or there's always an option to make your own symbol that represents yourself...

Actually the Tuscani badged Hyundai Tiburon is a performance upgrade you could buy here in the states until last year, now that upgrade has become the SE I believe. Most vehicles are sold in other countries under different names ... the Toyota Hi-Lux in Japan is a 4Runner in the US, the Nissan Frontier is called the Navarra in Australia, as for your Prelude I do not recall weather it was badged differently when it was sold in the US but I think I saw the Prelude badge on cars in Japan so I would have to say no. BTW: Chevy Cavaliers are sold as Toyota Cavaliers in Japan.

Nope. The JDM model was called the Prelude also.

There is the chassis name. If your Prelude has not had any sort of an engine swap, then it should be H23A1. Typically, people who race on the streets of Japan refer to cars by their chassis name, rather than Prelude or S2000 or Civic, etc. That's because it gets straight to the car. If you just say Prelude, people will have to ask an additional question: "What year?" because there are five generations of Preludes to consider, each generation having a slightly different chassis name.But don't go out and say "I own a Honda H23A1." It's just too many syllables for America.

Sorry omg, the chassis code for a 95 would be BB4. The motor code would be H23A1. Prelude has never been known by any other name, in any other country. Actually for the BB4 (92-96) model and the BB6 (97-01) model seem to stay pretty faithful to one uniform appearance too, regardless of the country it was sold in. Unlike Civic, a Prelude is a Prelude is a Prelude, whether it's euro spec, jdm, or usdm.
