Honda Might Relaunch the S2000

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onMay 24th, 2016


With the recent successful relaunch of the all new Acura NSX, the Honda company has turned their attention to their smaller two seat roadster, the S2000. Since the S2000 went out of production in 2009, enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for the company to bring out the next evolution of Honda’s highly capable roadster. There have been a few concepts here and there over the years to wet our appetite, but rumors are now surfacing that Honda might plan a relaunch to coincide with their 70th anniversary.

Acura’s NSX project used a large number of internal resources during it’s development through production phases. Now that the NSX project is finished, it is likely that Honda will have a lot more time to focus on other special projects like the S2000. Fittingly enough, a 70th anniversary relaunch would line up to plans that Honda had for the original S2000 which debuted for the automaker’s 50th anniversary.

No other details have been leaked to the public on the potential S2000 project. However, based on engines available in today’s Honda lineup, and staying true to the heritage of the S2000, the next evolution of the car will likely keep to a 2.0L four cylinder, but utilize turbo and electric technology, similar to the NSX.
