  • A sports car that makes few compromises, the 2005 Honda S2000 is one of the more visceral cars sold in America. And yes, that's a good thing.

    Agile chassis, rev-happy engine, minimalist design, optional hardtop, high level of performance for the price.

  • Cons

    Could still use some additional low-end torque, shrill engine note at high rpm.

Lost 20 years at 6500rpm

Vehicle: 2005 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

I bought a 2005 S-2000 a few weeks ago. I keep hearing about the "middle age crisis" and the tendency men have to drop money on garish toys. My buddies got Harleys. I got smart. Suzuka blue. Flawless. Radio was OK, but I prefer the music generated by the engine. I will never sell. It makes a Vette feel like a bucket of bolts. I just drove in from Austin a few days ago. The only problem was a slight sunburn and my face hurt. Constant grinning like a loon makes that happen. Great cornering. The rear end kicks out a little when you goose it but straightens up in a hurry. She is very responsive and wants to play. She emits a high pitched moan @ 6700 RPM. Get one and grin.

I purchased my 2005 in February of 2006 with 11 miles on him. I ride a Suzuki sport bike, so I have a need for speed. I was flying down the highway with the salesman, & he told me I was only in 5th gear. This car is fabulous & I will never sell him. If you love speed, love looking great topless (top down, that is), this is the car you need. The most fun you can have on 4 wheels.

"Speaking of which, can anyone comment on driving a pre-2005 Boxster with a more recent S2000"...

I have also heard that 2005 is the last year for the Honda S2000, but that would not deter me from buying the car at all. Honda dealerships are not going anywhere and the company is likely to support...
