Yep, sports cars are definitely making a comeback. Honda too is working on a new sports roadster based on the EV-STER concept revealed at Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year.
Honda CEO Takanubo Ito confirmed that to German magazine Auto Motor Sport and also hinted at a possible petrol-powered version of it. The EV-STER as its name suggest, is an electric roadster.
They will probably change the name as well, and come up with something more pronounceable!
The EV-STER is a compact, light and nimble sports car with an EV drivetrain. CO2 reduction is Honda’s main focus in its long-term plans, and cars like this will help with that goal. Granted, an small EV doesn’t sound like a charmer, but a petrol-powered version of this car, or at the very least a Mugen version, will be plenty fun to drive.
