    Default Honda's S2000 Reprise?

    Not likely, but fun to think about . . .

    We Hear: New Honda S2000 to Retain Front-Engine, Rear-Drive Layout

    and it could be an in house antidote to this:

    If it's anything like the NSX, we now hear about the possibility, first prototypes will circulate in 2020 and be shown way too many times.
    Then Honda will promise these will be on the road by 2022, that is until one of the protos will catch fire lapping the ring.
    They will then show an almost production design a year later in some car show, do donuts at the superbowl half time and keep teasing with it until 2024.
    By then the car will look old and there would still be a few bugs that will keep it off the dealer lots.
    Finally in 2026 they'll have the car that everyone yawns at already at the dealer lot and it will have some stupid hybrid nanny that no enthusiast care for, so they wouldn't buy it and Honda will stop production after just 3 years and go back to making boring econoboxes.

    Save the money Honda!
    Don't do another NSX!

    Honda is still lost.

    - Journalists hate the new NSX
    - Euro Civic Type R has gotten mixed reviews
    - Embarrassing F1 engine program so far
    - Honda has no RWD platform, a 'baby NSX' aimed at the Cayman/Boxster would be more logical
    - Global recession looming on the horizon, makers will axe/postpone low margin sports cars projects

    However, the CEO ultimately responsible for all of the above was ousted half a year ago. Hopefully the new CEO steers Honda in the right direction to make the next Civic Type R/Baby NSX/S2000 true drivers cars.

    Was he behind the CRZ too?

    Previous CEO took over in 2009 and CRZ came out a year after, so probably not his baby.
