While there have been concepts floating around for small Japanese roadsters it has never looked more likely that we are about to see a return of the kei sports car. Both and look likely to show small roadster concepts at the Tokyo Motor Show in November.
The Tokyo Motor Show always throws up a few surprises and one of these for 2013 is that the discontinued S2000 Roadster will be on the Honda stand. The car branded as the Honda S2000 Modulo Climax is fitted with a range of new aftermarket modifications from the company’s Modulo sub-brand.
Production of the much loved tiny Daihatsu Copen Roadster ended earlier this year and there has been speculation for some time as to what (if anything) will follow it. Daihatsu seem unlikely to disappoint having shown several concepts over the last few years. The latest of these is the Daihatsu D-R Roadster.
The Daihatsu Copen is to finally end its production run with a 10th Anniversary Edition. The long lived roadster has an enthusiastic following thanks to it’s cheeky personality and fun but frugal handling. The final edition of this convertible car is limited to just 500.
Nissan’s Crossover convertible Murano hits problems with production in the aftermath of Japan’s natural disaster causing delays in getting enough cars to customers.
