You remember Honda’s famous tagline, "The Power of Dreams"? Well, as far as their ambitious HondaJet project is concerned, it’s looking more and more like they’re going to need more than the power of dreams to get it off the ground.

According to Automotive News, Honda has once again delayed the release of their new plane, saying that a number of component issues will keep the HondaJet grounded at least for another two years. What those "component issues" are is anyone’s guess and when asked about the specific delays, HondaJet spokesman Stephen Keeney could only say, "Regrettably, we’ve experienced delays in some components."

This is now the second delay by Honda with regards to producing those $3.9 million jets and there’s no word as to whether there might be more postponements in the future. One thing we can count on is that the Japanese company’s plan of taking to the skies this year will have to be pushed back yet again.

He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
