A New Honda S2000 Rumored For 2024 With Type R Engine

One of the best driver's cars ever could be returning to the Honda lineup in 2024

  • Honda marketing is apparently seriously considering bringing the S2000 back

  • If the rumor is true, the car would return in 2024 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Honda S2000

  • Moreover, it would use the Civic Type R’s engine that delivers 306 horsepower


The legendary Honda S2000 could be making a comeback as early as 2024. Better yet, it could pack over 300 horsepower.

Every driving enthusiast knows the Honda S2000. Small, light, and capable of revving up to almost 8,000 rpm, the S2000 was produced from 1999 to 2009. When it retired, the Honda roadster was powered by a 2.2-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that delivered 240 horsepower.

The Honda S2000 slotted in between the much less powerful Mazda MX-5 and the big German Four comprised of the Porsche Boxster, Mercedes-Benz SLK, BMW Z4, and Audi TT. It was in the middle in terms of pricing as well.

Now Honda may be looking to revive the S2000 for 2024 according to a source who spoke with Forbes. Oddly enough, the same report surfaced around the same time five years ago in Autocar.

Odd? Maybe. But we are still going to run with it because the idea of a new S2000 should be talked about every year. Especially one that would be powered by the Honda Civic Type R’s 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 306 horsepower.

Indeed, both stories report that Honda would use the Type R’s powertrain in a new S2000. That would give the roadster enough power to compete with the Z4, 718 Boxster, and SLC if they keep the weight down which they hopefully would.

We’ve seen a ton of old legends come back recently. The Toyota Supra, the Land Rover Defender, and the BMW 8 Series to name a few. We hope Honda decides to buck current marketing trends and bring back their own fabled roadster.
