Insiders have informed British publication Car that Honda has a special sports car ready to stun the world with its launch.
With 2023 marking 75 years since Honda's establishment, the company aims to capitalize on the occasion, similar to Porsche's 75th birthday celebration when it revealed the Mission X concept.
The only known detail about the upcoming sports car is that it will be an electric vehicle (EV), representing Honda's commitment to electric mobility.
The sports car may receive the prestigious Type R moniker, known for its association with high-performance, racing-oriented vehicles.
Honda's Type R models symbolize the brand's performance ambitions and distinguish it as a manufacturer dedicated to delivering driving pleasure.
Thanks to Honda's upcoming e:N architecture, the sports car might offer rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and possibly all-wheel-drive (AWD) options, enhancing its performance capabilities.
Honda is reportedly preparing to unveil an electric sports car later this year, possibly as a spiritual successor to the S2000.
Honda is likely striving to keep the vehicle's weight and price down, with a focus on innovative design and materials, such as carbon fiber, to achieve this.
