According to actually latest info, the yank department of Honda company lobbying to produce a new model that could e utilizing Honda S2000 Roadster. Unofficially new S2000 ought to hit the market in 2015. What will surely be name as to the future S2000 equivalent decision isn’t known, and just what hasshi-san confirms : “to be honest, there extremely is no comprehensive arrange. ” though, it looks that there’s positively a ambition to remain set against the best-in-class driving enjoyment and driving dynamics.

There are a handful of terribly optimistic statements that say we simply can positively see 2015 Honda S2000, and they actually conjointly mention a hybrid system during this car. The new S2000 ought to have electrical power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes with abs and an integrated antiskid system with traction management.

2015 Honda S2000 2015 Honda S2000The 2015 Honda S2000 would probably use a 4-cylinder gasoline engine somewhat larger than 1.5-liter Insight/CR-Z unit, fitted to a center frame, which means mid-engined and rear-wheel drive. This engine will doubtless be tuned to balance fuel economy and emissions with all-out power. In terms of total net output, including the electric motor, we guess the new sports car will fall somewhere between the “old” S2000 and the CR-Z, meaning about 160 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. Transmissions should logically duplicate the CR-Z’s 6-speed manual and continuously variable transmission (CVT) that behaves much like an automatic. That powertrain, with the electric motor geared more towards performance than economy, could yield 0-60 mph acceleration of just under 6 seconds, particularly if aluminum is used to reduce the curb weight.

With its rear/mid-engine layout and enthusiast-oriented appeal, the 2015 Honda S2000 will almost certainly ride a unique independent rear suspension instead of the CR-Z’s simple twist-beam axle. The coupe’s MacPherson-strut front suspension may also be swapped out for a more-compact arrangement that would allow a lower nose to reduce power-sapping aerodynamic drag. As on other hybrid Hondas, the new S2000 should have electric power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and an integrated antiskid system with traction control.

There’s no telling what the price will be, but it won’t be too far upstream of the discontinued S2000, which stickered between $35,000 and $38,000 in its last season.
