We’ve been hearing that Honda will revive the Beat sport roadster for quiet some time now. Reports first started showing up in late 2009 that Honda was planning on a successor to the Beat as a front engine car using the platform and 660cc engine from Honda Life.
It was later reported that Honda was would fuse the Beat and S2000 into one model as a new compact roadster.
New reports now suggest that Honda will take the best of its cars and motorcycle technology to create a front-wheel-drive, two-seater sports car as a successor to the Beat.
Power is expected to come from a 1.3 liter or 1.5 liter VTEC unit that will be mated to the company’s first dual-clutch transmission adapted from the Honda VFR1200F motorcycle.
Expect the Honda Beat to arrive sometime in late 2013.
