The 2015 Honda S660 is getting ready to go on sale in Japan.

A photographer there spotted the Honda S660 at a shipping port. The Japanese automaker’s new compact convertible looks similar in production form as the 2013 concept, but does have slight changes to its exterior including the headlights, tail lights, front grille, smaller wheels and overall more mild body lines.

On the inside, Honda made bigger changes, getting rid of the futuristic steering wheel seen in the concept for something more fitting in a production car. The seats have also been redesigned and the touchscreens shrank. The Honda S660 is powered by a small 660cc, three-cylinder turbocharged engine with around 63 hp and can be paired to either a CVT or six-speed manual. Rumor has it that a more powerful S1000 will make its way to other markets, featuring a 1.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood but don’t expect it to arrive in the U.S. anytime soon, if at all.
