When AutoGuide shared a story Monday with the headline that the Honda S2000 is “definitely never coming back, Honda exec says,” it seemed like a bold and foolish move by Honda to shut the door completely on one of its most iconic cars. But Honda isn’t, and those ideas appear to have come out of nowhere.
It’s cold, snowy and icy outside for a lot of us, so we go and swap our summer tires for the winter ones. It’s the safe thing to do... on ice and snow. Things are a little different on pavement.
Are you excited for a new Honda S2000? Well don’t be, because who knows when or even if that will actually ever happen. Another patent showing off a weird, expensive-looking mid-engine Honda has come up, though, so who knows what this could be.
Honda, a company best known for producing oddly-styled crossovers and front-wheel drive economy cars, may have once also sold an exciting rear-wheel-drive two-seater sports car, according to some historical documents and contemporary research.
I’ve always had an irrational fear of mufflers and exhausts, which I guess I can attribute to frequently losing the hair and skin off my leg from the hot pipe of my dirt bike growing up. This fear carried over to cars though, and now I get to see my fears rationalized with the use of a thermal imaging camera.
A strange yellow Honda S2000-shaped Ford Mustang crashed while leaving a local car show in Connecticut over the weekend, mystifying car experts everywhere.
Doing a burnout is about the most knuckle-dragging thing you can do in a car short of jump it while running from revenoors. That’s probably why it’s so satisfying to see one shot with a $40,000 Flir T1K thermal camera.
Now that there is a mid-engined Corvette on the horizon, all our long-awaited, long-rumored and long-demanded sports car dreams seem on the table. Even Honda might be jumping on the bandwagon of making things happen that we never thought would happen by reviving the S2000. Some sources that claim the roadster will…
In case you needed any more evidence that that Land Down Under is a strange and mysterious place, a man was able to purchase a new—yes, brand new—Honda S2000 from a dealership last month.
Honda released the S2000 in 1998 as part of a “celebration” of its 50th anniversary. Do the math and the automaker’s 70th anniversary is looming in 2018, which is apparently reason enough to validate the years of rumors of an S2000 successor.
When you track your car, you know that stuff will break. Parts fail, structural components snap, and things succumb to the extra stresses of being run at the limit. So, you might as well appreciate how hilariously awesome your own wheel looks as it skips through the grass.
This morning somebody decided the internet was going to talk about a revival of Honda’s dearly departed rear-drive purist sports car, the S2000. Maybe the prevailing malaise about the new NSX has Honda fans desperate for redemption but there’s no real reason to discuss this right now.
Think the trademark boxer rumble of a Subaru is all about the boxer engine layout? Listen to this Honda and think again.
Put this number in your head - 150. That's how many times the crank in this S2000 revolves at full tilt, every second. Not only is that absolutely mind-boggling, but it's a figure that can be repeated ad infinitum without the risk of breaking, because Honda. All this textbook hoonery can now be yours for a criminally…

Regular Car Reviews had a Honda S2000 about a year ago, but they couldn't stay away from this tiny roadster's happy face any longer. This love story has some potential.
Tires squeal. A cloud of dust gently rolls over the car at its point of impact. Bits of grass and dirt fling into the car. Ladies and gentlemen, the track "off." Here's over eighteen minutes of offs for your viewing enjoyment.
The great Carroll Shelby used a very simple formula to make the Cobra one of the fastest roadsters of its day...take a big engine, cram it into a small car. The Honda S2000 is one of the best handling cars to come from Japan, so I'm not sure how a Viper V10 improves the balance, but I like it.
The S2000 comes to us from a time when Honda was on top of their game. With an original specific output of 120 hp/liter and a near 9,000 RPM redline, some described this roadster as "a motorcycle with doors." This 2004 with only 25k miles can be yours for $18k.
You there! Do you sit alone all day in a darkened room, softly crying because the Honda S2000 is dead? I have great news for you! No, it's not coming back. The news isn't that good. The news is that even though Honda won't make us an S2000, you can make your own for free. Out of paper!
