The current trend in the car industry is reviving old legends and producing cars that to customers look like its predecessors. There were many different models revived from the past and if the rumors are true, the 2016 Honda S2000 is in the works. First S2000 was unveiled as a concept car back in 1995 and it entered production four years later – in 1999 and it was produced until 2009 with no major updates. No one is sure why the Japanese manufacturer didn’t make a successor right away and for a long time it was not certain whether we will ever see the second generation of the popular S2000.
Exterior of 2016 Honda S2000
When it comes to the exterior, we will have to rely only on rumors and reports, since there are no official images of the upcoming 2016 Honda S2000. Reports suggest that the new S2000 is going to be very similar to its predecessor in shape and size – and it will most likely be a convertible, but with a hard retractable roof – which should improve the sound insolation on the inside – which was one of the biggest problems of the first S2000.
Since the 2016 Honda S2000 is going to be a sporty roadster, rumors suggest that it is going to have lightweight body – one report even suggested body panels made out of carbon fiber. Furthermore, the 2016 Honda S2000 will surely have headlights similar to the current Honda NSX – the headlights that are called “jewel eyes” and the big front grille will surely be used. There are no information yet about the back and some details of the interior – like what are the key details are going to be or what the size of the alloy wheels is going to be.
2016 Honda S2000 Interior
At this moment, no one can tell for sure whether the new 2016 Honda S2000 is going to be a two-seater or is it going to have another row of seats in the back. One thing is for sure, though, the interior will be based around the driver and it will surely have bucket seats, that are going to be both comfortable and supportive at the same time.
Another thing that we can expect is a big touch screen display that can be used for the control of the infotainment system and for the satellite navigation. There have been some concepts that could be a sign of the upcoming 2016 Honda S2000 but the Japanese manufacturer didn’t confirm or deny any of the rumors.
Engine of new S2000
The first S2000 was available with a 2.0l and a 2.2l engine and the interesting thing is that the both engines produced similar amount of power – around 240 horsepower. However, according to the reports the 2016 Honda S2000 is less likely to get those engines. In fact, one report suggested the only thing that seems logical at the moment – that the new S2000 is going to have the same engine as the current Honda Civic Type R – 2.0l and around 300 horsepower.
One report suggested that the Japanese manufacturer plans to offer the 2016 Honda S2000 for around $35,000.
Release date of 2016 Honda S2000
The 2016 Honda S2000 should get unveiled in the first part of the 2016.
