With an announcement by Honda that it will debut a small electric sports car concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, rumors are swirling that more performance concepts are on their way.

According to a report by AutoCar, after the reveal of the Small Sports EV Concept (above) in Tokyo, Honda will then debut a Super Sports concept at the Detroit Auto Show in January. A spiritual successor to the NSX, it is expected to use either an electric or hybrid drivetrain, while all-wheel drive is possible.

Back in September Honda CEO Takanobu Ito first c onfirmed an NSX successor was in the works.

    It is about time Honda/Acura started to produce cars with excitement, for too long they have been the stodgy, but reliable Mom and Pop type people movers, I love my Acura TL TypeS, but for pure driving excitement I go for a blast in my 1980 Triumph TR8 convertible.

    Honda should have just kept the original NSX in production. It is still refreshing today to see one on the road as it was the first year of production. The styling is timeless, just as the 1995 Legend Coupe is.
