is Honda bringing back the S2000???? Cool if they are..That and the Prelude were the only Honda cars I liked prior to the 2016 Civic coupe and Accord coupe..Way cool :)
Yes, there were quite a few rumors over the past couple of years regarding what sort of sports car Honda would slot in between the 6-figure NSX and the S660 roadster only in Japan, but more of them are lately focusing on a new roadster like the S2000. Cool indeed!

Waiting on info about the Si myself (I'd go Type R but I prefer coupes, and Si's more likely to possibly have an automatic transmission option this time around). A rendering like the above would be fine by me...if it excludes Cosmic (or some other dark) Blue, I could always have it vinyl-wrapped if that's what I pick, so no big deal.

That S660 was sharp..To bad not for here. Yeah I wish the Si was already out..Hmm might have to switch into it if I think it's worth it..But I love the 1.5turbo. Very fun to drive..Had mine about 5 weeks :)

If for whatever reason I stick with a Civic, and the Si remains manual only, the 1.5T is honestly a tempting option -- mainly after having watched Hondata's comparison vids with a 9th gen Si and seeing that the 1.5T is as fast (if not faster) with sleeker looks and way lower fuel costs. Would only need stickier rubber to be a sweet corner carver! :drive:

Not to go off-topic, but do you notice much/any turbo lag on yours? The car mags didn't seem to (mild if from a standstill, that was about it), but the more sources the merrier!

just a slight lag when first out the gate but then quickly really picks up speed...I haven't had this much fun driving since I had my 2.8L BMW Z3..If haven't tried I definitely would and not listen to the cvt naysayers. It works really well with this 1.5 turbo :)

Yes there are talks and sources online about the return of a Honda roadster a possible remake of the ILX as well.

I really hope the SI get a new radio apart from the new generation radios with no knobs. I was looking at the Europe type R and their new radio has buttons at least ( see below) I think i could settle for this. I know everyone wants the knob but this sleek look doesn't look that bad. Make it happen Honda!!!!

I understand people's frustration with not having any knobs, personally I've gotten used to it, but that's the previous gen of Honda's infotainment - I kinda doubt they're going back to that.

The knob thing is not an issue for me
