The news being reported by Road & Track is that Honda is considering a new convertible version sports car. If you're thinking that it'll be like the beloved S2000, you're wrong. Instead, sources are stating that Honda is considering cutting off the roof from the CR-Z. In order to do this it would call for the platform to retain its fron-wheel-drive, though a more powerful drivetrain would be fitted to counter the increased weight from the folding top.
If Honda does go through with this not so novel, and maybe it would be best if it didn't, the drop-top CR-Z would be going head to head against the long-reigning Mazda MX-5. If the CR-Z is successful, then Honda would then look into building a more potent, rear-wheel drive hybrid sports car. Photos displayed are of the 2011 Honda CR-Z
