Honda is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2023, and there’s no better way to commemorate a milestone in automotive history than to build a car that deserves it. The first S 2000 marked the brand’s 50th anniversary. What better way to celebrate 75 years of Honda. With the exception of the Civic Type R, Honda hasn’t built a large performance car in a long time. The timing would be good.
Nothing since 2009
The S2000 ceased production in 2009, leaving a gap in Honda’s lineup. The high-revving roadster was first introduced in 1999 and showed the world that Honda could compete with sports cars from Porsche and BMW. Rumors of an S2000 revival have been swirling for years, with some suggesting a replacement will arrive in 2024. Last year, the automaker announced two new electric sports cars that could arrive in the coming years. It could be a battery-powered S2000 (which might upset enthusiasts) or even an all-electric NSX. Although unconfirmed, Acura officials have said the next NSX will do away with the combustion engine.
Hopefully the Japanese automaker will see fit to introduce the S2000 and NSX into the electric future. Let’s just hope that Honda will think of the enthusiasts and decide to go with an internal combustion model.
