Critics have been longing for a successor to the S2000, but Honda has different plans as a new report is indicating a Beat will be launched in 2013.

According to Auto Express, the roadster will be based on the CR-Z and feature styling influenced by the OSM concept.

Engine options remain a bit of a mystery, but sources suggest power will be provided by a 1.3- or 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol. More interestingly, there is speculation the car could offer a dual-clutch transmission which is reportedly being adapted from the company's VFR1200F motorcycle.

Regardless of the final details, the Beat is expected to be offered internationally.
