Should Honda have produced the Sport concept, it would bear the logo in a very unlikely place: at the bottom of the windshield, between that glass piece and the hood. Amaral said that it had such dramatic proportions that no production vehicle could work as a basis for his work: the rendering artist had to design everything.
In 2012, the Sport would probably have used a combustion engine placed between the axles. Clarke told Car and Driver it was conceived to be a low-cost, lightweight vehicle designed to use simple, proven, and analog technologies. It is a pity it did not make it into production lines to replace the S2000.
If the Japanese company decided it was a good idea to produce it right now, we’d bet it would get the same battery pack as the Honda e and probably the same motor in the rear axle. It is not unlikely that it would get an extra one for the front axle to make it an AWD tiny beast. Considering Honda did not even try to sell the Honda e in the U.S., such a sports car would only live in other markets if it had a shot after all. Thank Amaral for allowing us to see what we will probably never have in Honda dealerships.
