Default Honda to start producing business jets

Now we know what they are going to do with the aluminum fabricating technology of the Insight and NSX.

(via nytimes.com) – Honda announced its plans to produce the twin-engine HondaJet at an air show in Oshkosh, Wis., on Tuesday. It will be a fuel-efficient twin-engine small jet. It will be built in the United States, and is expected to go on sale by 2010.

So much for my conspiracy theory.

Does this suggest that Honda might consider using composite structure in future cars? ( another wildly speculative theory )
