A little while back Japan’s Best Car Magazine reported that Honda is working on an AWD (Honda’s Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system) successor to the S2000 that will be powered by a powerful 4-cylinder engine mated to a hybrid system similar to the one found on the Honda Insight.
In its latest report, Best Car says that the S2000 successor will be offered with a front-wheel-drive option only and a hybrid driveline. The model will be a step above the upcoming Honda CR-Z hybrid due out next year and will feature a retractable hardtop.
Look out for the S2000 successor sometime in early 2012.
Until we have other solid details, we’re going to have to file this under rumors.
