I have mixed feelings about active safety measures like this and things like automatic braking systems that seem to be slowly replacing driver attentiveness and common sense.

More importantly Chris, how about coughing up some news on a replacement to the S2000?

My lips are sealed about future product, hypothetical or otherwise. Personally, I'd be the first to cheer if we could announce a new S2000.

As a huge fan of what Honda did in the past any explantation as how the enthusiast side went into the ditch . For years we had CRX,Integra Type R , RSX, Prelude, then S2000 and NSX now just like 10 or 12 years later we have the Crosstour? WTF?
It is like you copied the GM playbook having great product in the past and now we introduce the "VEGA" . From my eyes you are in the Vega,Cavalier,Chevette era of Honda right now . Thanks but no thanks!

The difference is that GM alway made a Corvette (even the slow 1980 vette counts to some degree) and the early Cosworth Vega was at least an attempt at something fun. Granted their products have not always be made with the highest quality in mind, but there was always something for the enthusiast at the GM store. Great quality aside, Honda now prides itself on people movers that have electronic doohickys that help inept drivers pay less attention to their surroundings.

Maybe I need more fiber in my diet.... but I digress.
