Short overhangs, a pure roadster design, a pretty girl by your side and the sound of your... electric engine turning away?! Somehow that doesn’t work out the way it’s supposed to, but sometimes automakers have to think outside the box in order to survive.
We were really impressed with the lines of the EV-STER that Honda showed at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show earlier this month, but we never saw it as being anything more than a regular old concept, meant to preview some other car we haven’t heard about yet. But no, they are actually going to build it.

Honda CEO Takanubo Ito confirmed that to German magazine Auto Motor Sport, and thankfully also hinted at a possible petrol-powered version as well.

The EV-STER is powered by an electric motor and a 10kWh lithium-ion battery drivetrain, sending all the power to the roadster concept’s back wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 5 seconds, while the top speed is 160 km/h (100 mph).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
