Huet Brothers co-founder Paul told Dutch media the Coupe will be based on the next generation Mazda MX-5.

Back in September 2012 we saw Huet Brothers' HB Coupe which was supposed to enter production this year. However, since the model was based on the outgoing Mazda MX-5, the Dutch specialty marque has now decided to wait for the next Miata to come out in order to utilize the new platform. In addition, to kick off production they need 40 orders and so far they received only 21.

Since it will be based on the upcoming next-gen Mazda MX-5, the Huet Brothers Coupe will utilize the SKYACTIV-CHASSIS so it should shave off 100+ kg (220 lbs) compared to the previous version. Moreover, the vehicle will likely feature carbon fiber body panels which will allow the coupe to tip the scales at less than 1,800 lbs (816 kg).

Expect the production-ready Coupe to be unveiled in 2015 since the new Miata will probably see the light of day towards the end of this year.
