2005 Honda S2000

If you are able to find a 2005 Honda S2000 that the owner is willing to sell, you can probably get it for around $27,000 according to recent prices. People looking for a sporty, efficient, powerful, and smooth-handling roadster have found it in this car - for a fraction of the price they would pay for an equivalent ride.

The 2.2L, 4-cylinder engine still packs a punch and, when combined with the rather minimalist design, attracts a lot of gawkers - and plenty of drivers.

The 2005 Model keeps all the improvements added the previous year, which includes a relatively smooth ride for a roadster. While building the power "race" car, Honda still manages to keep it affordable for the quality, and economical to maintain. Consumer ratings are very high in every category with virtually no complaints (rating 9.4 / 10.0).

There is a hardtop option, but it's costly. But if you wanted a hardtop, you could find an old Prelude instead, and still get the speed.
