Revived Honda S2000 Could Feature Both A Supercharger AND Turbo


The new S2000's powertrain is slowly coming into focus.

Honda engineers must be jealous of . How else do you explain this new report from about a revived S2000? According to the outlet’s anonymous source, a new S2000 is set to debut in the fall of 2018. This jives with what another anonymous source—or perhaps it was the same one—told last year. The idea is for Honda to celebrate its 70th birthday with something special. How does a two-seater with a 320+ horsepower engine sound?

The engine won’t be the same one featured in the all-new Civic Type R. “Sure, the Type R’s 2.0-liter turbo is a great engine, but by 2018, that would be old news. We need to take things forward. As a celebratory model, the sports car must be special, so it must have a new powertrain and a unique chassis,” the snitch said. , citing Japanese magazine Holiday Auto, said that the automaker is looking to Mitsubishi for inspiration on its new engine. Yes, Mitsubishi. The plan is to craft a two-stage boost system that is electronically aided, think an electric supercharger and a normal turbocharger (among other components). That setup will power a 2.0-liter inline-four which will be mated an eight-speed dual-clutch transaxle.

Like the original S2000, the new model will not be cheap, with a sticker price that could approach $50,000. A debut is said to take place at either the 2018 Paris Motor Show or the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Is it OK to start imagining a world where Mazda sells a new RX, Toyota lots are filled with Supras and Honda will let Americans buy either a Civic Type R or S2000?
