Do you remember the Honda S2000 rear-wheel drive roadster? If you're a performance nut, chances are you do. And if you ever had the pleasure of taking a seat behind the wheel of one, chances are you can't forget it off your mind. Now imagine that you're a design student who has a big project due, and the only thing you can think of is what an incredible vehicle the Honda S2000 really was...
Where are we going with this We here at Diamond Honda of Puente Hills, serving the greater City of Industry area, are simply setting the stage for what's quite possibly our favorite design project in recent years. Specifically design student, Michael Mcgee has created a new concept of what he envisions a new generation of the Honda S2000 to look like in the year 2020.
Of course, at this point, we're guessing you're interested in knowing exactly what Mcgee's design looks like. And while we could bore you with our explanation, we figured we'd leave it to the master to outline his design process.
"The inspiration is an R/C car, shown by the structure design and the emphasis on lightness and plastics," explains Mcgee. "The yellow body sides of the car can be exchanged for other styles and colors based on the customers wants. These body sides also function as large doors."1
In other words, Mcgee's design is all about customization and individuality, while still creating a vehicle that's iconic at a glance. And if that's not the passion of a future car designer talking, we don't know what is. Of course, it will be some time before anything by Mcgee is ever found on a dealership lot like Diamond Honda of Puente Hills, located at 17525 E. Gale Ave. City of Industry, CA 91748. After all, not only is Mcgee's design meant for the 2020 model year, but he's also still a student.
