Is the car in these spy photos the next-gen Civic Type R, or an ALL NEW ACURA INTEGRA??

By now you've likely seen these photos on Car and Driver or Autocar or somewhere in one of your social media feeds. All of these outlets have guessed that this is the next generation Civic Type R, and this seems like it would be a very good guess. When we first saw the photos, that's what we thought as well.

BUT, we've put out some feelers and there's an interesting twist. At least one of our sources came back saying that they thought it was actually the new Acura ILX replacement RSX/Integra that is seen in these photos undergoing testing. For some back story: in the not too distant past, we have been assured several times that there is a vehicle coming to the Acura lineup that will fit into this slot (hatchback, big power, possibly AWD). The vehicle seen in these photos could very well be the next generation Civic Type R, but we think this would be a great time to revive the Integra name. The possibility also exists that this is a next-gen Civic body or simply a cobbled together mule (like the FR V-8 TSX Mule we saw over 10 years ago) testing the Acura powertrain.
