Honda's Smallest Sports Car Has A New Lease On Life

Sports Cars / Comments

You thought the Honda S660 was dead? Think again!

Honda is absolutely massive and sells tons of different models all across the globe, many of which we never get to experience. For what feels like ages, we never got to enjoy a true Honda Civic Type R, instead we had to settle for the Civic Si. On Japanese soil, Honda fans get to enjoy all kinds of oddities, and one of our favorites has to be the Honda S660. This little two-door drop-top is not only awesome-looking, but it's turbocharged as well, and is the true baby brother of the legendary Honda S2000. Even though we'll never get to officially purchase these in the States, we can't help but follow the story of this intriguing little car very closely. The latest from Honda is that, despite production officially ending in March this year, the automaker will be restarting production for one final run of 650 units.

These little city cars have proven to be so popular that Honda has been forced to produce more, with the new allocation being made available on a lottery basis. The statement from Honda explains why the final run has been made available: "Immediately after announcing the end of production, the S660 received orders from many customers and sold out much faster than expected. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to customers who could not purchase because they were sold out during the negotiation."

Honda will be accepting orders for 600 S660 vehicles, with another 50 units going up for lottery by applying on the Honda Japan website. Honda will give preference to buyers who were in the negotiating stages when supplies ran out, and the lottery allocation will be announced from November 12 to December 5. The winners will be announced on the website on December 15 2021. The Alpha trim sells for 2,321,000 yen ($20,384), and the Beta trim sells for $17,843 Unfortunately no Americans will be allowed to enter the lottery. Bummer.
