Last Call: What about a little Honda e 2000GT?

I know we talked about the Honda e not that long ago and the consensus seemed to be that everyone kinda liked it but was bummed to hear it wouldn’t be coming to the states. Now, not that this is even being made but what do you think of this Miata-like Honda e? I personally love it just as much as the e if not more. The idea of a light electric sports car is very intriguing to me since they’re not particularly light. I don’t know if a front-mounted battery would be more beneficial than a low floor mounted one but hey I’m all for the styling. I really enjoy this vintage style that Honda has at least showed they are capable of. It looks great and I hope they continue with it. Thoughts?

My name is Colby Buchanan and I love all things car-related all the way from rusted 240sx's to McLaren Senna's and of course I have a soft spot for American Muscle. You can spot me in my bone stock '06 350z named MackenZ.

  1. Sign me up! An electric runabout with a long wheelbase, long hood, nice and low. So not SUV.
    Also: Round headlights! Goat eyes!

  2. I’m curious when we’ll get a more traditional EV sports car (non Lotus-Tesla or in-space Tesla roadster)? If they can work out the packaging (i.e. a bunch of batteries in a smallass car) it should be pretty rockin. Instant torque would fix most of the issues of the Miata.

    1. Well, there’s the New Roadster from Tesla. Although, a lot of people are curious when we’ll get that, too.
      Anyway it’s a 4 seater. Tesla’s trying to act like an established manufacturer by reviving a defunct model name and applying it to a bigger, fatter, heavier car.

    2. I am convinced that if Honda gets this ball rolling, others will follow. The weight issues with EVs can be overcome by offering a smaller, efficient battery pack, a philosophy the e already employs. Driving our Leaf like a sports car is like asking granny to twerk, but there are some weird situations were I can see the fun in it anyway.
