The plan for the Honda CR-Z is to lose the hybrid system and add some serious punch under the bonnet. Therefore, the upgrade includes a lot less weight and a turbocharged petrol engine developing some 160 up to 200 horsepower.

In that power range the Honda CR-Z will probably see many rivals shaking in their boots. If the Honda CR-Z comes to existence it would offer Civic Type R power levels while weighing in about four passengers less if not more.
