Honda announced today that the 2009 Honda S2000 will be the final mode year produced of the award-winning roadster. Honda said that the roadster was originally created as a limited-edition tribute to Honda’s 50th anniversary after which production was extended due to customer demand

“The S2000 is a sports car designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “It raised the bar for all future roadsters, and it’s already considered a classic by many Honda fans.”

Honda has sold over 65,000 units of the S2000 in the U.S. since 1999. The Japanese automaker sold the roadster in 64 countries around the world with a total of over 110,00 sold since its introduction.

The news kills speculation of a next-generation S2000 based on the Open Study Model Concept shown at the 2008 London Motor Show.

    No way – this really stinks… with Volkswagen coming out with the BlueSport Roadster… honda should reconsider

  • zermatt

    It is my hope that they will come out with a replacement (rear wheel drive) that will be similar in price and performance, but not require your right foot be into the gas so much to keep the revs up.

    I have always thought that the S2000 was a good value.

    It should read the “news kills speculation” not “the new kills…”

    The S2000 is a solid car. I'm hoping they will come out with a replacement rwd performance model too…if they dont then Honda will be left with civic Si's and TL type S's as their highest performing cars.

    I'm guessing this will be temporary due to global economic revision
