Default Linian Roadster (Honda's 'Scion' for China) gets s2000 sucessor?

Guangzhou Honda surprised everyone at the Shanghai show with this tidy little roadster, its second Linian concept in as many years. While the 2008 Beijing show concept was a more pedestrian five-door, this two-seat droptop has us wishing for a proper S2000 successor.

Oh, one can quibble over some of the design details (oversized grille element, the showcar-only airplane yoke-style steering wheel, etc.), but fundamentally this is an interesting package.

Sadly, according to our compatriots at Autoblog Simplified Chinese, Honda's domestic partner was mum on specifics, including driveline configuration, powerplant, and so on. That said, the shape does look quite production friendly. Add in a stronger windshield header, some larger mirrors, and do away with that Knight Rider steering wheel, and the rest seems plausible enough.

Rest assured, we are angling for more information on this car as we speak, but for now, enjoy the possibilities... and the gallery below.

Linian is currently China only

Why is Honda China less stupid than American Honda? I swear, some of the **** coming out of that company is sickening. A FWD V6 TSX, the ridiculous ZDX...

i love it if they get rid of the stupid vents, the over the top front grill, and throw some better wheels on it

that and the steering wheel.
