Honda's new CR-Z has been met with mixed reactions since its release earlier this year. One one hand it's a fine reincarnation of the original fun-loving CRX, but it's eco-friendly hybrid engine doesn't quite get the enthusiast blood pumping.
Apparently Honda is looking to change that. Word is that starting late next year, Honda will produce non-hybrid versions of the CR-Z powered by 1.6 liter turbocharged four cylinder engines. Autocar UK reports that two versions of the turbo CR-Z will be available, including a Type R model that makes 200 horsepower. While past Type R models were known for their high-winding NA powerplants, the idea of a turbocharged non-hybrid CR-Z is something to get excited about.
