Rabid lovers of Honda's rapid S2000 roadster can relax โ€” their beloveds won't be changing anytime soon. UK's Autocar today reports Honda won't be replacing its S2000 roadster with some tarted-up V10-powered monster quite yet. In fact, though rumors (and April Fools' stories) indicated some manner of S2000 replacement was at hand, Honda says they're still eyeballing preliminary sketches, meaning a finished product won't emerge from the studio until next decade โ€” likely around 2011. A less-comprehensive overhaul could shorten that timeline somewhat.
