For general information, the "2000" in Honda S2000 was for the engine displacement not the model year. When they changed the displacement in 2004, they did not change the model name. Below is a pic of my 2000 Honda S2000.
Hmm, a chopped VW bug or a mini TT, not sexy for sure.Based on the size dimensions they were given, they should have used a Daihatsu Copen as their photoshopping base. Makes more sense for what Honda is clearly after.
It's nice though to see new, fun models that would hopefully be affordable, and potent, and light.well, I could care less, Im not trading either one of my Solstices. However, it's neat to see how much different the car looks with a different bumper / front. I like the look of the Honda version and if I was going off road, the kia look would grab me. I still say the GXP grill looks the best though.
Which vehicle do you like better?
I had a 2000 Honda S2000 and currently have a 2007 Sky Redline. The S2000 handled a little better but was gutless until you hit 6000 + rpm. The max torque was 153 ft/lbs at 7500 rpms and 240hp at 8300 rpms. The quality of materials and fit & finish were superior in the S2000, but I prefer my Sky due to the larger interior (I am 6'1"), overall size and more powerful motor. Here is a pic I found on the net showing the two cars together:Which vehicle do you like better?
I remember when the Hondas were coming out, those were good power numbers, but it was rediculous how people were paying over MSRP for one, if you could even get one. I remember when Pontiac/Saturn started showing the convertible, wife and I loved the look of the car, and the price was very fair.
Combined to sell what? A small sports car should be offered by GM, but GM doesn't need Pontiac or Saturn to do that.Agreed Pontiac and saturn should have maybe combined? Removing them entirely left a big hole in the GM line up. Even now with the cobalt being gone, what " cheap" 2 door car does GM offer? screw the spark and the sonic. What GM needs is something to compete with the Focus ST, Veloster Turbo, Impreza WRX, and yes even the next generation Miata. If i didn't get this car, i Cobalt SS was the next option. I'm not asking for a 300 hp fwd / awd, or even rwd monster. Just give us a Convertible Sports car on the Kappa Platform. I was a huge GM supported, but i don't see a new car that i would purchase. If anything i would have to search for a low milage older GM vehicle. It's upsetting. The corvette and the Camaro are both " flagships" but they are literally telling customers to buy other manufacturer cars. I took my fiance' car shopping, and they told me to check out the genesis for her..... with that being said we left the dealer without making a purchase.
The Genesis R spec is pretty potent, I just can't see my money going to Hyundai, but it is nice.You should at least drove the Genesis coupe V6 2013 with 348 BHP.
Is not bad looking.
Let's see what happens with the sales of the 2014 Vette in the next 6 to 10 months.
If they start to go soft maybe GM will go back and resurrect something similar to our Solstice.
