A new car from Honda that's been in the news is a Japan only rwd s660 and it looks a hell of a lot like the crz. Some arrivals have been referring to it as the baby nsx. I was wounding if we will have our crz with a rwd rear engine add on lol

uhhh are you talking about this?

2015 Honda S660 Mid-Engine Roadster First Drive – Review – Car and Driver

cuz im sorry but that looks nothing like the crz to me aside from maybe color, and yeah no we wont get that drivetrain. if im not mistaken it would be a serious loss in power as well. the s660 makes us look heavy and i believe runs under 100hp.

just checkin if were talking about the same thing here. did u read the link by op or have you read on the baby nsx? completely different cars. buuut the dream of having a rwd crz certainly is one to reach for..it is suggested that a next gen crz might come with more hp and possibly drop the hybrid drivetrain. i personally hope that doesnt happen. while i welcome more power, the hybrid portion, for me, makes the crz what it is..

Yes that would be the one. Not by body panels or the out side do they look the same but by the bones as if they are using the same frame. And to the baby nsx yes I should have read threw but was just looking up the s660 and came across the post.

The hybrid system should be scraped and either have more displacement or a turbo.

Sadly, these are all discussions we've had here on the forum.

- Honda won't drop the FF layout of the CR-Z to change to a MR / FR layout.
- Anything is possible with enough money.
- Honda S660 is an amazing car, and I hope we get it here in the US.
- There have been rumors of future CR-Z's not having a hybrid drivetrain, but who knows.
- Want a fast CR-Z? Boost yours or KSWAP it.
- The S660 and CR-Z won't be using the same frame, as they don't really have a "frame" as these are unibody cars, just specific points that are strengthened to provide rigidity (including what we call "frame rails" on these cars. Very far off designs to have so many future similarities.

Happy tuning!

Yeah the S660 is in Japan's Kei series cars.

..sssooo that baby nsx...i know id be happy if they made one. Way more realistic option to say I might one day drive/own an nsx. I can only dream about the real one, but a baby nsx at a much lower price range just makes the dream more possible
