  • Honda Sports EV unveiled yesterday


    "Honda Sports EV: there is nothing about it that makes my heart (or any other body part) whisper, 'I want you.' At the end of the day, that is what makes me buy a sports car."

    I watched the unveiling. It does nothing for me. In fact, I thought it looked more exciting with the sheet draped over it.

    I didn't watch because I knew it was going to be a let down. This probably destroyed some conspiracy theories about next gen S2Ks.

      I dunno man. Conspiracy theorists are dang near impossible to convince even when they see it in plain light of day. Heck, some still say the birth certificate was forged. But I digress.

      Most of the general populace S2000 owners I know reacted in disgust (or at least disappointment). But if the headlines are any indication, the motoring press appears to be experiencing a generally pleasurable bodily function down both lower appendages over this thing, and I'm just not joining them in that.

        I never viewed the Sport EV as a potential replacement of the S2000, so in that aspect it was not a let down. As a completely new sporty EV, it didn't excite me either.

        I did see see the Urban EV that was revealed earlier this year and I liked it as a potential daily driver. However, all the articles said it was "too small" for the American market and was not likely to becoming here if it actually gets produced.

          I don't see the point of the grille opening for an EV. There is no functional use for it, so the car might as well look like a flattened egg for efficiency sake. The compromise between "it looks like a normal car" and "we've maximized efficiency" seems to have fallen short. At least they're getting back to curves, and the little halo headlight rings are cool. Contrast this car against the awful angular abomination of the new Civic and I think I like this better.

            Hideous. Please do not import it.

            I know for a FACT that the last year of production of the S2000 is 2003!!!!!
            After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

              All of the grill openings look like they're covered in plexi or polycarbonate. They give the look of a traditional car styling without creating additional drag.

                Yeah I saw that in some other pics, along with that horrid bubble top.
