2020 Honda S2000 Rumors, Specs, Price, and Release date. The fans have been waiting for more than a decade to see the return of a roadster that certainly marked one period in the past. Well, it seems that the well-known Honda S2000 will not actually come back and it will stay there in the 2000s. We are all aware of the fact that crossovers and other models have been way more popular than sports cars nowadays. Some like Mazda MX5 Miata have found their way to the top, but it seems that the 2020 Honda S2000 will not.
The amazing roadster is about to come back, according to the latest reports. This sports car was in production for about ten years, between 1999 and 2009. During a decade-long production, we have seen two generations of it. Latest reports suggest we are finally about to see a successor as 2020 Honda S2000. Several renowned car magazines suggested this comeback, though we are still waiting to hear some official statement from the company’s management. Far, we must rely on speculations only.
The last model of the Honda S2000 has been seen with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This probably wouldn’t change for the upcoming model and it has been estimated that it could hit more than 320 horsepower. Such an engine in the Honda Type R delivers the output of 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
The recent rumors and predictions say that if the next-generation Honda S2000 actually hits the market, it certainly won’t happen soon. Yes, it has been speculated that it could surprise the fans as a 2020 model, but it seems that the arrival of this popular roadster might not happen at all. Be that as it may, the 2020 Honda S2000 would probably keep that recognizable exterior design that many have been comparing to its rival Acura NSX. It means that it would appear as a two-door convertible with a longer hood and a shorter rear end. Following the fashion of next-generation vehicles, the carmaker would probably use some lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber in order to save as much weight as possible. That would additionally boost the overall performance of this sports car. Other significant updates could involve a redesigned grille, bumpers, LED lighting system and larger air intakes, but we can only guess at the moment. It will go straight ahead new Toyota Supra.
The new 2020 Honda S2000 carry on with a familiar design philosophy. It should come as a small roadster, which offers plenty of dynamics and amazing performances. Among car enthusiasts, this potential model is colloquially known as “baby NSX”, which indicates that the new model should borrow many design solutions from Acura’s supercar. This includes the styling. The new 2020 Honda S2000 should feature similar styling philosophy. Expect similar shape, just in a smaller package. When it comes to body style, this will be a roadster. Some reports suggest a Targa rood. We would say that some coupe version also seems possible. In terms of mechanics, expect a lot of racing approach. Most likely, this roadster will share many parts with Civic Type R, including suspension.
When it comes to interior of the 2020 Honda S2000, this roadster should apply some innovative design here. The fans would probably find two seats covered in leather. The seats should be comfortable and supportive, especially at high speeds. As it has been the case with most of the next-generation sports cars, the new Honda S2000 should also pay special attention to technology. The driver could get an information display as well as some larger infotainment touch-screen in the center console. Its standard and optional safety systems and driver assist features would be upgraded.
