    Default Honda plans for s1k

    If this actually happens, would it be a flywieght contender - or just cannibalize Miata success with the gay demographic?

    I read that article and kept on thinking "RWD Honda Del a Sol". 126 bhp at 2000 lbs. Isn't that kinda like the NA6 Miata?

    You can't turn off the nanny aids as the car currently is. Deal breaker.

    If this is a Kei class, it will be way smaller than any Miata. Visualize a 5-10" driver being able to touch the pax door with out stretching out of his seat. Teeny.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    And the Capuccino. Hard to do much with the shape when the entire car would fit under you desk.

    Yah, that will be a killer autocrosser. Problem has always been US crash standards. It seems that with modern design, engineering and materials, they can get these matchbox cars to pass them.

    For those of y'all not familiar with Kei car's. they are a Japan market specific class of micro cars built to meet a particular tax tier.

    I hear they can do 0-60 in under 12 hours if the wind is favorable.

    It's a little turbo car that weighs less that 2000lbs. Considering how well honda makes engines I bet you can pump out close to 200hp by just turning up the boost from that little motor and still weigh close 2000lbs. The body is being enlarge for the US version. This little car has tons of potential.
