Now, die hard enthusiasts of the top down car no longer need to wait for one more decade for a new variant of the S2000 to arrive.

The occasion was for Honda to reconnect with the car’s legion of loyal supporters as well as to happily inform them about their decision to develop the vehicle.
The rumored car is said to be sticking to the S2000 core which is basically offering a unique balance of power and control coupled with the sleek open top styling. The car will be sporting a four-cylinder VTEC variable valve engine that will be further enhanced to produced at least 180 bhp 25 bhp more than the higher end Mazda MX-5, which the S2000 will go head-to-head with shall rumors turn out to be ture.
