Honda S660 in the US???

Last Updated:

Now it looks like Honda is actually considering the al new S660 roadster for the US.

Even thought they said “no way” just a few weeks ago when it came out in Japan.
They had even mentioned a slightly larger “export” version with a 1000CC engine.
So which is it?
Who knows?

I really like the design of this. It looks very retro in a good way (as well as modern)
Somehow it reminds me of old Hondas. Small, simple and really cool looking. Like the CRX used to be.
So I really think they should have something like that back in the US.
But this is really small. I mean REALLY.

It is about 134 inches long.
Which is 20 inches LESS than the new Miata! That’s small!

It is even smaller than a Fiat 500 by 6 inches. Imagine !
The only thing smaller here would be a Smart.

Not sure there might be many takers in the US.

What do you think?
Would you get one? Should Honda get us something a bit larger?

  1. I think this is a fantastic design and I would love to see this on US roads, but no, I would never buy one myself.

  2. I could see takers of this. It looks way better than a MB smart car. Maybe Honda should consider an EV version for the USA.

  3. The market is flooded with convertibles that are too small to comfort real Americans. The minute a hardtop convertible is available that's COMFORTABLE for FOUR FULL-SIZE (240-lb, 6'5" people) I will buy one. Even those who are short and thin have big &/or tall friends in America. I mean, this is America we're talking about, right? Not China?

  4. An alternative to the Mazda Miata by some inches. Still it looks fun and zippy. Honda desperately needs to make small cars again…that are not BORING.
