When the EG Civic hatch was discontinued in 1995, many people were waiting for a Civic Si based on the new EK platform. These people waited and waited. Then they waited some more. Then they waited a little longer. In fact, these people are still waiting as Honda never built an EK hatch-based Civic Si.For 3 long years, many Honda fans were under the impression that Honda just didn't care about the U.S. market. Japan got an EK-based Type R Civic -- which many people argue is the best Civic ever built - while all the U.S. got was an underpowered, under-appointed budget hatchback. However, as the EK was still related to the old EF, the aftermarket for this car was plentiful, and kept the EK hatch "alive" among enthusiasts. As if we need to say it, the B-series VTEC engine also bolted right in to this car.But then Honda came out with an announcement: this 6th-generation would finally get a Si version. It appeared as if Honda finally took notice of what people wanted in their sporty Civics - namely a DOHC VTEC powerplant.So in 1999, a B16-powered Civic Si was unleashed on an anticipating public, only this one was a bit different: it was a coupe. This was the first time that the iconic Civic Si was sold in coupe form, which turned off a few die-hard Civic nuts. These people, however, were in the minority as this EM-1 Civic (code name for the coupe chassis) is probably the most popular Civic Si Honda has ever released. The 1999-2000 Civic Si coupe has everything that makes a Civic Si truly worthy of the name; the car had the 160 horsepower B16, four-wheel disc brakes, a strut tower brace and all sorts of suspension tuning. These days, when someone says "I want a Civic Si", this is the one they are talking about.The car was discontinued after 2000.In 2002, the Civic Si received a complete redesign, and once again, came back as a hatchback.

You copied that from IGN and posted it on here. I just read that article earlier today. IGN: History of the Civic Si
