The Daihatsu Copen is a 2-door roadster with an aluminium retractable hardtop built by the Japanese car company Daihatsu. It debuted at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show as the Copen concept, based on Daihatsu's front-wheel-drive light-car platform.

The Copen was originally designed with a 660 cc turbocharged engine in order to meet Japanese kei car regulations. However it no longer meets environmental emissions standards in several countries, so in these markets the Copen is fitted with a more powerful 1.3 L powerplant.

At the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, Daihatsu revealed two new models of the Copen, a 1.3l and the 'ZZ'.
