Not for the Faint of Heart

2005 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)
After purchacing my S2000 in Anchorage in March, I quickly realized that a second car was needed in any area that required driving in the snow. That being said, this is the most fantastic car that I've ever driven. Though it packs quite a punch (240 hp), it is a very tame every day driver. But, when you want to unleash that horsepower, it's always there on command. It's handling is extremely precise, and there is little or no body roll in the corners. The chassis is extremely rigid, and the car feels as it is one piece. Having 6 speeds, the shifter is crisp and has short throws. The seats are firm and supportive. There is very little trunk room, though, so pack lightly.
Outside of the exhaust note that this work of art puts forth, the nimble handling is by far its best feature. Even in the rain, the car does precisely what you ask of it with no complaint.
More trunk room would be a benefit, as I frequently use the passenger seat as an additional trunk.
