Honda Beat was a rear mid-engined two-seat roadster car produced from 1991 to 1996. And how small cars will be the future Honda has plans to build a successor for it. In the latest number of the Japanese magazine Best Car there is an article about the future car, but how Japanese is not our language we will only speculate.
If the Beat does come back, it will likely share the platform of Honda’s other current kei cars, the Life and the Zest. This means it would be a front-engined car with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Expect the new model to debut sometime in 2011.
