Rumours that Honda has plans for a CR-Z convertible

Some heavy rumours hit the motoring world recently hinting that Honda may be intending on building a new droptop sports car to revive its sporty image for dedicated fans. Sources have suggested the new model is likely to be a convertible version of the CR-Z. To achieve this the platform would retain its front wheel drive layout, however a drivetrain with a bit more power would be needed to coincide with the extra weight needed to reinforce the convertible vehicle.

If this new convertible were to leave the workshop it would be up against established roadsters like the Mazda MX-5. Theoretically if this convertible were to be successful, Honda’s next step would be to build a more powerful rear wheel drive hybrid sports car. Now that’s something worth gossiping about.
