Honda S2000 Cancelled, Trails 2010 Acura NSX Off The Track

Posted in Acura, Cars, Fast Cars, Honda, New Cars, Newsworthy by Suzanne Denbow | January 6th, 2009 | 2 Responses |

Blaming the dramatic downturn in the global auto market, Honda Motors has sent the Honda S2000 to join the highly-anticipated 2010 Acura NSX to that great ‘Ring in the sky. Implementing an aggressive new program aimed at avoiding a predicament similar to that which American automakers currently find themselves entrenched, Honda has begun to edge away from the performance car circuit in favor of focusing on the current fad: fuel-efficiency.

The most aggressively publicized hybrid edition to the Honda lineup will be the Honda Insight, which is scheduled to debut with a thumb of its redesigned nose at the Toyota Prius at the 2009 NAIAS later this month. Next year, Honda plans to introduce the world’s first hybrid micro car, the Honda Jazz, which Honda claims will average 80mpg and produce a mere 90g/km of CO2. Ultimately, Honda intends to have 500,000 hybrid vehicles on the market by 2012, but does not have any immediate plans to revive either the Honda S2000 or the Acura NSX.

  1. I have never really liked this model of Honda it reminds me to much of the front of the BMW Z4

    Sorry to see it withdrawn, but I already own a 2006 in mint condition, so mine will eventually be a true collectible. If you own one, you love it.

    Not utilitarian enough to be great every-day drivers. Also, not for long-distance driving. Great seats & ride, but too confining for someone 6+ feet tall to be in it very long.

    But… it’s the ultimate sports car for short-range driving. That’s why it was created, and that’s why I bought it.

    Shopped Boxters, Z4s, SLK 350s, TTs, 350Zs & Miatas, but they’re all too effete. I can’t fit into a Lotus, and if I could, it would beat me up too much.

    S2000 is the real deal… simply beautiful, with clean, taut lines; thrilling power when you turn up the revs, with matching sound track; impeccable handling; modest weight; smooth, powerful brakes; driver-centric instrumentation; Honda’s famous quality and reliability. Track-ready.

    No options to buy… superb close-ratio 6-speed, limited slip, HID headlights, perforated-leather seats all standard equipment.
