The Japanese based automaker Suzuki is planning to introduce a new Cappuccino roadster, which is expected to make its way onto the market as early as 2016.
With a car market with customers moving from expensive supercars to cheap sports cars because of the financial crisis and with vehicles like the Toyota GT 86 being sold quite well, the Japanese based automaker Suzuki is planning to introduce its very own rear-wheel drive sports car, which will probably be considered a new generation of the Cappuccino. The model in question will be a roadster, and it will probably rival the Mazda MX-5 and the upcoming Toyota GT 86 Roadster.
The carmaker didn’t announce anything official just yet, on the new Cappuccino roadster, but reports are indicating that Caterham might be involved in the project and it might provide some of the parts necessary for the car, considering the fact that the new entry-level Seven is powered by a Suzuki-sourced turbocharged three-cylinder engine. The new Cappuccino might receive the same 660cc unit as the new entry-level Caterham Seven. The roadster is expected to make its way onto the market by 2016. Additional details on the subject remain unknown for the moment.
