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.
