    Rumorpile: Return of the Honda S2000


    • Another S2000 Rumor Comes In

    From the 'We Can Dream' file, Auto Express is reporting that Honda is planning to bring back the S2000 nameplate for a new mid-engine coupe. Quite the departure from the front-engine roadster that was the S2000. The model is expected to be the middle of a trio of sports cars from Honda; the top being the NSX and bottom being a small roadster named S660.

    The reborn S2000 is expected to be powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder producing somewhere in the range of 350 horsepower. There is talk of using a simplified version of the NSX's hybrid powertrain as another option.

    The model is expected to arrive sometime in 2017, two years after the arrival of the NSX.

    Funny that they want the smallest to be an S660, poaching the stupid name from MB.

    All in All, I think they should use the NSX hybrid power train in all 3 cars making it a family of performance sedans that covers a wicked range from say 200HP/250LBS of torque to 600HP and 600+ lbs of torque. It would be awesome and would lower the cost since most of it is programming / detuning.

    This actually is a pretty good idea.

      A new report from Auto Express says Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is putting the finishing touches on high-performance XE to take on the likes of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, BMW M3, and Mercedes-AMG C63.
      The XE SVR will boast Jaguar's 5.0L supercharged V8 engine with around 500 horsepower. This will be hooked up with an eight-speed automatic. The current SVR lineup - F-Type and Range Rover Sport - utilize all-wheel drive and there is the possibility the XE SVR could go down this route. There has also been some work done on the chassis with new springs, dampers, and a limited-slip rear differential. Expect a more aggressive exterior look to go with the mechanical changes. 
      Auto Express says the XE SVR "will arrive almost halfway through the saloon’s lifecycle," leading us to believe it could be next year or so.
