    He made no mention that the surge you get above 6,000 rpm is VTEC yo. Disappointed.

    But I do like how he compares it to the MX-5, which some like me might say is a better car.

    mx5 was a game changer. I personally love the BRZ. And with the STI version going on show this month the extra power would make it a even better package.

    Bit sad that a 18 year old car (s2000 first produced in 1999) is still the car that modern affordable sports cars get compared to (and often not favourably). Seems the game never really moved on from 2 decades ago.

    That particular segment is more on the niche side but still highly important for brand recognition & aspiration.

    But I get what you are saying.

    Imagine a modern golf being compared to a golf III gti (1999) and not really coming out on top... Even wanting to compare a new mx-5 or BRZ/GT-86 to a 18 year old car is a sad indictment on how little these cars have advanced compared to other segments.

    Honda could launch successor to S2000 sports car

    Honda boss Takahiro Hachigo has not ruled out the firm launching a successor to its S2000 sports cars.

    “As of today, I cannot say clearly that S2000 will be reinvented as further studies are necessary,” Hachigo said at the Tokyo motor show.

    Honda has launched three new performance cars in recent years, each a reinvention of a previous mode: the S660 kei car in Japan, the Civic Type R hot hatch and the NSX supercar. At this year’s Tokyo motor show, Honda has previewed a future electric sports car with the Sports EV concept.

    Hachigo was surprisingly open in discussing whether or not a new S2000 would join that stable of performance models. He said the firm always wanted to “pose new models with the joy of driving”, and had a strong history of doing so. Autocar reported in 2015 that the company was developing a new S2000 as a Mazda MX-5 rival.

    He said Honda’s priority was to create “evolutions of all three types of performance cars we have now for next generations”.

    Beyond that, he appeared open to the idea of an S2000 making a comeback: “I’ve already heard many voices expressing they’d like a next-generation S2000. Honda development engineers are quick to develop sporty cars if the requests are there.

    “All over the world – in Japan, North America, Europe, China – more and more voices are expressing the desire to reinvent S2000. However, it has not matured yet. It’s not time yet. We need time to decide if S2000 is reinvented or not.

    “If the sales people investigate, look at it and they’re really enthusiastic, maybe we look at it.”

    The S2000 roadster was produced by Honda from 1999 until 2009.
