Production Green-Light: Mid-Engine, RWD Honda S660 Roadster

But it’s definitely too small for America.

What could be cooler than a sleek, mid-engine, rear-wheel drive roadster from Honda? Maybe one that would be big enough to make it to America. The Honda S660 kei car was presented as a concept at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, and was recently approved for production at Honda's Yokkaichi Works plant, the same factory that manufactured the Beat roadster in the 1990s. But with a 660cc 3-cylinder engine making 67 horsepower, don’t expect to see it in the US in the near future.

Which is a shame, because the S660 looks great, and weighing in at less than 2,000lbs - it should also offer an awesome power-to-weight ratio. Sure, this may not be your first choice for a drag race, and it obviously won’t be the next S2000, but it could just be the coolest city car we’ll never see in America. Have fun, Japan.
