Sounds like a bunch of journalistic speculation to me. Still, I'm intrigued.

Its not an S2000 anyway, just feeding on the S2000's fame.

2014 is fine with me since I'd just picked up my CR 3 months ago. I probably won't consider getting a new car until then anyway. I'm definitely interested to see what Honda's plans are for the S2000 replacement or any sports car.

My source tells me we'll see it as an Acura. 2014 might just be a date off into the future, with the actual release coming when the economy turns around.

Anything relating to the s2000 might be too much conjecture at this point as the S2000 didn't sell nearly as well as hoped.

The S2000 was never made to sell in large quantities.

that concept actually doesn't look that bad. Hopefully if they make it, they'll keep it close to this concept. I like it.

:ponder: I though the S2000 hung around for 10 years basically unchanged because it sold better than anticipated.

Sales only started to really drop after the 7th year of production.

S2000 is nothing so much as a legend in its own time. If you don't like it, than you haven't driven it hard enough.


Honda is dead.  ...and it's going to take nothing less than Jesus standing outside the tomb asking for it to come out for it to be resurrected.
The S2000 was the last good design from Honda in almost 2 de

Sales only started to really drop after the 7th year of production.

Peaked in 01/02 and slowly fell every year, except a spike in 05. 110,000 units is a small production run. Hard to justify it when the 2009 sales were cratering. Compare this to their other cars and this one was a poor performer. Got the axe a few years after the nsx suffered similar sales issues. I imagine there is a certain number of units they have to produce to hold a given price. Sad to see her go but my point that it DIDN't sell but it didn't sell as well as it should.

This is a true roadster yet the bmw z4 for example sold 30,000 in 2006 while the S was a fraction of that.

In the United States, the largest market for the S2000 worldwide, the suggested retail price of the base 2009 Honda S2000 is $34,995.[35]  The CR trim's base price is $36,995 with a $1,000 option to add air-conditioning and stereo.

In the United Kingdom, the 2009 model is offered in two trims, Roadster and GT. The GT trim features a removable hard-top and an outside temperature gauge. On-the-road prices of these trims are £27,300 and £27,850, respectively.

After several years of steady production, sales of the roadster began falling dramatically starting in 2006, and the trend accelerated during the 2008 U.S. recession. Honda sold 7,320 units in the U.S for 2004, the first year of the AP2. In 2008, only 2,538 units were sold in the U.S. - a 74% decline from the 2002 sales peak. In November of that year, for the first time since its launch, fewer than 100 new S2000's were sold nationwide during a calendar month.[36]

That looks well...not too good. It's too narrow and high. Not sleek enough. Even though the s2k is a 10 year old body it still looks amazing. The looks are timeless. It's so free flowing and clean, there is nothing offensive about the styling or anything you can really point out as out of the place. They need to keep the shape relativly the same...Just a little more power maybe

Obviously none of us have access to Honda's business plan for the S2000, nor the actual returns on the car. But the story we were told when it first came out was it would be a very limited production run. It was built in the same low-production facility as the NSX and original Insight, after all.

The fact that it went on for as long as it did, and sold as many as it did, is probably a heck of a lot better than what Honda was originally expecting, regardless of what other roadsters were doing.

It's interesting you mention the Z4. I noticed that for all of 2009, sales were down to 3523. Only 11% of the 2006 total you quote. So the S2000 hasn't been the only car to have sales drops. Also, of that 30,000 Z4s, how many of those were manual transmissions? That's a huge factor for car sales here in the US.

If they are serious, it will remain a Honda . An Acura sports car would be like a Lincoln Mustang or a Cadallac Corvette. The true sports cars almost always reflect the basic model in the company line.
