This Is The So-Called Honda S2000 Successor The US Won't Get

And maybe it's for the best.

We’ve heard all the rumors, which are apparently only coming partially true. A successor to the beloved but discontinued Honda S2000 is happening, but there are a few catches. For starters, it really won’t be a proper S2000 successor because, well, it ain’t going to be all that powerful. Try around 63 hp, give or take. That’s not a typo. Also, it’s not coming to the US. Japanese website Minkara has just uncovered these photos of the new Honda S660 in production form.

We’ve seen this car as a concept before and, while it doesn’t look bad, it certainly doesn’t have the S2000’s simple but forceful design. That aforementioned output comes courtesy of a 660cc turbocharged three-cylinder paired to a six-speed manual or CVT. Compared to the 2013 concept, the production-spec S660 has slightly toned-down exterior styling and a more conventional interior. According to AutoGuide, there’s been talk of a more powerful S1000 with a 1.0-liter turbocharged four-banger under the hood in development. Even that, however, likely isn’t US-bound. Maybe it’s for the best.
