Last of the pure sports cars
By Chicane on
2006 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible (2.2L 4cyl 6M)
With its few creature comforts and emphasis on the driving experience, the S2000 is probably the last of the modern "pure" sports cars. This is a car that is light and tossable like a Miata, but large enough to live with. Its as fast as the more expensive alternatives like the Porsche Boxster, but comes with Honda reliability and a smaller price tag. For me, it came down to the S and the Boxster, bat after driving the two, the S's light, effortless abilities won me over. Truly a great car that you just don't see everywhere.
Automatic top - 7 seconds from coupe to convertible at the touch of a button is why you see this car topless on sunny days and Miatas and Solstices with the roof still up.
Better cupholder - the placement of it on the arm rest is useless and interferes with shifting.
