Default S1600?

This is how a brand new s2000 should be created.


2000 lb, plus 300 hp, 1600cc turbo, 2 seater and baptise it s1600 Zero!

That definitely would be the anti-Miata. Getting 300hp out of a 1600cc engine would require heavy boost. I'd rather have a naturally aspirated engine or a larger 4 cylinder with a lower boost turbo.

Probably the new 2.0 Civic Type R Turbo would lend itself. Whilst very quick as a car, I read initial reviews claiming it's not up with the best 2l Turbos in terms of power delivery (though close), however it lacks the eager "happy to rev" character that the S2000 was known for.

Altogether I'm afraid a lightweight 2 seat roadster with an average engine would end up been seen as "another Miata" (even if it is more powerful), recreating the S2000 will be difficult as it's major asset was heavily relying on being a NA engine, something out of fashion today...

Default "s1600 zero"!

If it's 300 ps or 260 ps really does not play into role here. What i should have mentioned, is that a carbonfiber chassi would be a "must have item" on this car. The price would go up a bit, about €2500-3000 per unit (If Honda would create 1000 unit each month).


I do think ~2000 lb or at most 2100 lb would be very realistic. I know for facts that there will be a brand new Honda s2000 replacement. But there is a big but... Which enroute they will take on this matter is a different story! We just have to wait and see.

If Honda is going for 300 HP, then they will use the Civic Type-R engine. There is still some confusion on the baby NSX as that is also being called the S2000 replacement in the media. I think the S2000 replacement is the socalled S1000 as I think Honda has made it bigger to accommodate the larger engine, and is not a stretched and widened S660.

Looking like we might get a S1000 which would be the S2000 replacement and would have various VTEC turbo, on a transverse MR chassis, while the baby NSX would be built on the longitudinal NSX platform and would probably have a detuned NSX v6 or possibly a NA variant.

You might be onto something though it might be a 2+2, but it could take just one business issue or some tech innovation forcing them to start over. I now hear that Honda might build a Prelude that could have a platform to be shared with some future Acura's built in a brand new factory. I think the Japanese management is realizing that FF is not the way to build a high end product, though I would love to see Acura be some kind of Japanese Audi with the use of longitudinal FWD and AWD platforms. Perhaps, American Honda is taking over the development of new Acura platforms and there is a rumor that Acura might get their own platforms, as this could very well be a new Longitudinal RWD/AWD and possibly even FWD platform.

I've realized that there could be both a Prelude and S2000 off a new RWD Honda chassis. This could also be the basis for an Acura coupe and Sedan. This is to give Honda maximum ROI, but of course there could always be some advanced tech for FF platforms that could allow Honda to start all over, but Japan is starting to get the message that if you want to make a good car with sporting credentials then you should go RWD. S2000 would likely be a 2 seat car, though Honda was also interested in a S1500 which would have been a small RWD roadster, but that car was likely canceled as it does not make sense as that cars platform could not be shared with an Acura RWD sedan.
