Is Honda bringing back the S2000?

The popular roadster was introduced in 1999 to celebrate Honda’s 50th anniversary and discontinued in 2009, but Car and Driver reports that it could make a return for Honda’s 70th anniversary.

"Expect something special," a source told C&D’s Peter Lyon. "Size-wise, it’ll be similar to the Mazda MX-5 Miata, but the Honda will have a lot more power."

That power will come from "a slightly detuned version of the Civic Type R’s 2.0-liter turbo" engine, Lyons writes, made along with the car at Honda’s Performance Manufacuring Center in Ohio.

"A large complement of R&D staff from Japan are already in Ohio working on the car," the source told Lyons.
