Car magazine Road & Track has unearthed a rumor involving Honda and a possible convertible sports car in the company’s future. Before you go shrieking and jumping up and down about a possible return of the S2000, you need to know that it won’t be happening. Instead, Honda is looking at making a droptop version of the CR-Z. Weird as that may sound considering the CR-Z is a hybrid, but Honda may be in the process of giving the car a major upgrade in the engine department with a more powerful powertrain that could qualify it as a sports car.

We don’t know whether there’s any validity to this rumor, but we are curious to see how Honda plans on turning the CR-Z into a sports car. We’re not doubting them in the least bit, but at this point, we have more questions than answers on whether Honda can successfully transform the CR-Z into a sports car that can give a car like the Mazda MX-5 Miata a run for its money.

Yeah, I think this would be the successful hybrid version of Honda. And I think with the impressive performance of this car a lot of aftermarket company wants to modify this car.
