Honda has announced their lineup for this year's Tokyo Auto Salon.

While there will be the usual assortment of vehicles, the centerpiece will be a specially modified CR-Z dubbed the TS-1X concept. Details are limited, but the car features a matte black exterior with a revised front fascia, extended side skirts, and a massive rear spoiler.

Besides the TS-1X, Honda will also display the Sports Modulo NSX and the HSV-010 GT which boasts a naturally-aspirated 3.4-liter V8 engine with upwards of 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) and 392 Nm (289 lb-ft) of torque.

The design isn't that bad. The execution is. A CRZ Si would still be cool, imo. and if the CRZ were nearly as efficient as the original insight, that would be cool too. The compromise kills the car, for now.
