Honda will launch the next generation S2000 next year to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary! The S2000 Roadster first launched in 1999 encountered a few changes in its short life time, but none of them being impressive.
The future S2000 will feature a more aggressive design, with a totally new front-end, with bigger air intakes and the high-tech optic units.
About the next generation S2000 there are two kinds of rumors. First one says the 2009 S2000 will grow in size and will be a four-seats convertible that will compete with models like Mercedes SLK and BMW Z4. Not very big changes for this to happen!
The second rumor, and the most plausible one, says the future S200 will be smaller, the same size with its biggest competitor Mazda MX-5 Miata. And we think this is the way Honda will go.
As about its engines, Honda will keep the current one: a 237 hp, 2.2-liter, 16-valve DOHC VTEC(R) 4-cylinder engine mated by a six speed manual transmission.
