Honda S2000 roadster tipped to finally have a successor

Honda S2000 roadster tipped to finally have a successor

In 2009, Honda's two-seater sports car was supposed to have a second generation model that would have kept the car maker in the running as one of the more recognized "enthusiasts" brands. Sadly, that day never came to pass. Apparently it would take more than half a decade for a real Honda S2000 to come along, at least according to insider sources. But intention and execution don't always go hand in hand, and Honda still has to iron out a few details before it could even proceed to production.

The new car will be offered with either a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine or Honda's new 1.5-liter turbo engine, which so impressed us in the Civic sedan, along with lashings of tech.

2016 Honda Civic Coupe to debut at LA Auto Show

We already know what the 2016 Honda Civic sedan looks like, in fact we spent hands on time driving the car back in October. At the time only the sedan debuted, we still don’t know exactly what the coupe will be like. Odds are they will look very similar. The official unveil is coming this month at the LA Auto Show.

Testing Honda’s tech for its 2020 self-driving car

Testing Honda’s tech for its 2020 self-driving car

The ultimate goal, Honda says, is a car you have the choice to drive, or to be driven in. That's the end game in the Japanese firm's ambitious autonomous vehicle plan, which by 2020 includes a milestone of a car "that can drive you to your chosen destination" according to the engineers working on the project. Several things have to come together for that to happen, mind, and I tried some of them out during my visit to Honda's R&D center in Japan this week.

Driving this electric Honda was more fun than the new NSX

Driving this electric Honda was more fun than the new NSX

You know something is up when a Honda engineer giggles while he's talking to you about his car. Turns out, the Honda "4-Motor Electric SH-AWD with Precision All-Wheel Steer" prototype - a clunky name for a heavily modified CR-Z - is enough to cut through the usual restrained enthusiasm of Honda Japan's handling experts, and turn them into squeaking fanboys. Then I drove it myself, and instantly understood why.

2017 Acura NSX First Drive Preview

2017 Acura NSX First Drive Preview

We've been waiting for the new 2017 Acura NSX so long, I was starting to worry I'd find it passé even before I drove it. It's been three years since Acura first showed off the NSX Concept, and only a little less than that since their abrupt about-face on the powertrain that turned what was shaping up to be a relatively mainstream sports car - albeit with an iconized nameplate - into a complex hybrid.

2016 Honda Civic first drive

What do you expect from a mainstream car? If you're talking about the 2016 Honda Civic, then those expectations vary hugely, with what's considered a "must-have" proving just as broad as the age range of the car's audience. It's no small issue, and one Honda can't afford to ignore. Some drivers prioritize economy above all else; others demand space and luxury features; style is vital but potentially divisive; and even in this mass-market segment, driving feel can't be ignored.

P-51 Mustang Replica plies the skies with Honda Odyssey V6 power

P-51 Mustang Replica plies the skies with Honda Odyssey V6 power

One of the most potent and sexy warbirds from the WWII era was the infamous P-51 Mustang. The real deal had a massive Merlin V12 under the cowl and was festooned with cannons to destroy the enemy. What you see here looks a lot like a P-51, but it is actually a replica aircraft called the Titan T-51. The idea here is to get propeller aircraft fans into the skies in an affordable military-style aircraft.
