We're bracing ourselves for the onslaught of tuned Honda CR-Z hybrids coming to this year's SEMA show. Honda has been hawking the hatch as a legitimate successor to the fabled CRX – a car that helped to push a whole generation of wrenches toward Japanese sheetmetal – and shops the world over have been champing at the bit to wring a little more power out of the seemingly anemic newcomer. The kids at Fortune Motorsports have been the first out of the gate with an up-skirt teaser for their take on Honda's hybrid hatch.

Not surprisingly, the crew hasn't released any details on their creation. We do know that the build will work in parts from the likes of ADV.1 Wheels, Falken Tires, Status Racing, Magnaflow and the neon fiends at StreetGlow. You can head over to the Fortune Motorsports site for a full list of the car's sponsors, or you can click over to Warren Shim-Quee's site to keep track of the build up.

      Autoblog, why do you bother putting any kind of article about a Honda product on your website. Nothing but paid Hyundai posters here.

      nobody cares about this...

      it's a Honda post and in 12+ hours I'm only the 11th post on it.

      Honda, you miserably failed with the CRZ, whether it was suppose to be a CRX successor or not (big debate on that), the car is just a shortened Insight.

      The best hybride Honda had was the Accord about 5 years ago, it was actually powerful, not that expensive, and had better MPGs than the 4cylinder.

      Unless a tuning company can lop off a half-ton of the weight, it'll never be a "legitimate successor" to the CR-X.

        Couple hundred pounds, getting rid of the underpowered IMA engine, having an independent rear instead of a torsion beam... in other words turning it into a completely different car =)

      Why are people even wasting time tuning this car ?

      Other some wheels I dont see the point to tune this car... give it a rest already. Just because is a Small Honda doesn't automatically qualify it for after market....
