Will a new S2000 ever happen?
Honda unveiled its S660 kei car concept at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show and clearly it was too small for the North American market. Well, it was a kei car, so it’s too small for pretty much every market aside from Japan. But still, Honda previewed a two-seater and many hoped it would lead to a potential S2000 successor in the US. For now that’s not happening. But what will happen is a production version of the S660. These newly leaked images show what the final car will look like, and it’s not much different than the concept.
The also leaked spec sheet reveals a total of 63 hp that kicks in at 6,000 rpm. Peak torque is 77 lb-ft at 2,600 rpm. Total curb weight, depending on the options, is between 1,830 to 2,116 pounds. The 660cc engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual or CVT. Exterior colors include orange, red, purple, and yellow. We’ll know more later this year from Tokyo, and we’re still waiting for that US-bound S2000 successor, Honda.
