Having owned or driven--some in competition--a number of "name" sports vehicles over the years, I'd have to rate the Honda 2000 as one of the all- time best. Fast, agile, responsive, SOLID, reliable and comfortable, the S2K is a modern classic designed for the serious enthusiast. Driven to its potential, the Honda 2000 rewards the driver with all that might be expected of high performance sports cars, including comfort. There's little to want in the S2K except for a bit less thirst, but even the average 23-26 mpg is little to gripe about in return for the outstanding performance.
Terrific engine, gearbox and handling. Good-looking solid, tight body with excellent panel fit and finish. Firm but not harsh ride and a comfortable amenity-loaded cockpit that invites long trips--you don't sit in a 2000, you wear it. There's also an excellent power top! The car's a keeper.
Prefer analog instruments, but "video arcade" display is definitely readable. Little trunk space when top boot is stowed there. Would like better mileage, but I'll take the performance.
