Honda May Have a Baby-NSX In The Works

Good news for Honda fans- there may be a baby NSX on the way, if these trademarks filed by Honda are anything to go by. Courtesy of GoAuto, we see that Honda has submitted Intellectual Property trademarks for the name ZSX- a name that has had trademark in the US up until 2012, but has become free for ownership. An unnamed Honda engineer told French publication Automoto that Honda is slated to debut this ZSX in 2017 at the North American International Auto Show. 

Information is scarce, but there is heavy speculation that the car will be hybrid in the same vein as the NSX, with either a 2.0-litre turbo VTEC motor at its heart, or the 1.5-litre turbo VTEC motor instead- with twin electric motors in tandem. Trademark filing in Australia for the ZSX name reflects this move, as well as reports that the spiritual successor to the S2000 will be something in the sub-NSX class.
