Patent for mid-engine Honda sports car – Image via Autovisie
Many are hailing this as being the successor to the gone-but-not-forgotten Honda S2000, and while that might be the case, it will be vastly different than that dear, departed sports car.
The S2000 was a two-door convertible powered by a high-revving, naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine.
According to patent images, the new sports car will be a small mid-engine coupe. Reports claim it will feature a hybrid powertrain that pairs a turbocharged inline-4 with an electric motor for a total output between 300 and 400 horsepower.
The latest rumor has it debuting in concept form at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show wearing an Acura badge with the ZSX nameplate.
Today, we ask you via our latest Twitter poll: What should this possible Honda S2000 successor be called?
