Civic Type-R, S2000-successor rumors from across the pond

First up, Autocar (UK) has spy photos of a new "high performance" version of the European Civic. A basic wing crudely affixed to the hatch (of an undisguised black Civic) is the sole tipoff that this is the "high performance" version of the car. The "grassroots" nature of this fitment might lead one to believe that a "high performance" version of the Civic was never considered during the development cycle of the present model. Autocar doesn't even seem to be too sure about what is seen in their 7 exposure set of spy photos:

These spy pictures could be the first evidence that Honda is working on a new version of the revered Honda Civic Type R. Our photographers spied two test cars near Honda’s technical center at the Nürburgring, both wearing a large, unsubtle spoilers over their rear windows.


You can see all the photos and read more here:

"Next Generation S2000?"


Across the chunnel from Autocar, a French automotive blog is talking about Honda developing a successor to the S2000. The blogger claims that the source comes from Honda France, which doesn't exactly inspire too much confidence in the rumor itself. There have been rumors of a new Honda Beat or a petrol powered EvSter for a while, so this could very well be what our French friends are referring to. Our guess is that a proper S2000 successor would surely rekindle the withering flames of Honda enthusiasm, so hopefully there is an inkling of truth to this latest rumor. Sorry, this link is in French but you can read a somewhat workable machine translation via http://translate.google.com.
