The Honda S2000 was one of the most appreciated models in the Japanese carmaker’s history and now it looks like the company is pondering a successor for the sports car, with the model being its response to the Toyota GT86, SUbaru BRZ and Scion FR-S triplets.
It looks like Honda US product planners are asking for the car to be built, while their counterparts from Japan don’t see the project as being so important. This is because Honda has a much bigger plan that will see multiple models be facelifted or receive new generation in the following years, as the company wants to completely transform its range.

It all starts with the new Civic, which will be revamped this fall following negative test drive conclusions, with the car set to receive multiple interior changes. In the fall we’ll also get the 2013 Accord, a new generation that will use two new Earth Dream units: a 181 hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and a 314 hp 3.5-liter V6.

2013 will see Honda launch a new generation of the Crosstour, which will ,of course, be closely related to the Accord. One year later, Honda will introduce a new Ridgeline and Pilot, which are expected to lose the angular styling cues of the present generations. In 2015, the automotive producer is scheduled to give the world a fresh Insight, as well as a crossover that will use the Fit as a starting point.
