    The Best Car I Have Owned To Date! — I miss her... Everything about her was that of the AP1, which I currently own, and then some. The engine didnt have as much RPM (down from 9k to 8,200) but was bored and stroked to yield more low end torque.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Best car for the money..

    Cons: driving in the snow is tough

    Poor Man's Ferrari — Small passenger compartment, not fast enough in a strait line, it's only a two seater, but its affordable and so much fun to drive! The car turns heads impressed people on the race track. It holds up to all the abuse you can throw at it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun!!!!

    Cons: Small

    Honda S2000 — Amazingly fun to drive. You could hear Vtec stock. Backend kicked out stock if you side stepped the clutch, but handled great otherwise. Could use more low end power but it revs to 9 so that makes up for everything.

    Pros: Performance and Looks

    Cons: Low end power

    2005 S2000 Gpw — car is amazing and revs to 8k. 240 hp out of a na 4 cylinder is ridiculous. solid car with great steering response, road feel, turning radius, and maneuvering abilities. best 6 speed manual transmission with short, easy, and smooth shifts and a great clutch. cockpit is made for the driver with most controls right next to the steering wheel. not too many gadgets, race car feel with just what is needed including ac and decent radio/cd player and gotta love the digital tachometer and speedometer. dislike the clutch delay valve but it saves the drive train so its a trade off and the lack of low end torque but never had any actual problems. great gas mileage and awesome convertible that turned out to be pretty economical.

    Pros: extraordinary styling, convertible, best 6 speed gear box, mpg, economical, turning precision

    Cons: little low end grunt, not too many creature comforts

    Fun Summer Car — Just what I tell everyone. Drives like a go-cart. Has it's disadvantages but it's a a true sports car. It's fun, zippy. Not the fastest thing on the street but killer on a road track.

    Pros: Small, lightweight, 0-6 in 5.5 seconds. Fun to drive. Awesome handling.

    Cons: Small Trunk. Small all around.

    Fantastic Car -- Both In Terms Of Handling, Power, Looks, And For The Price —

    After having owned 2 MGBs, a 1964 Austin Healy Sprite, a Fiat 124 Spider, and a 1959 MGA, I bought a 1995 Miata off the showroom floor. After over 10 years and almost 150K, it came time to replace it, and I picked a silver 2005 Honda S2000 off of the showroom floor. It has been a fantastic car. One of the best handling cars I've driven. The engine allows 26 mpg wandering around the city and suburbs, economy and excellent handling at low revs. When the engine revs -- all 237 horses kick in, and the car comes into its own. Progressive power, excellent cornering, fantastic brakes, and all of the feedback you'd want from a sports car. For those of us who remember the Triumph GT6 or TR6, this may be the modern, handling equivalent. Fun to drive, fun to autocross, and as a Solo car, a delight. This is a driver's car, you do not have to take your hands off the wheel to adjust the radio volume or A/C-Heater fan switch. At over 6 feet, I am comfortable in the car. After a 12 hour drive down I-95 to Daytona for the 24-Hour, I got out of the car, without aches, pain, or discomfort. The SUV wears me out on I-95, but not the S2000. I've heard that Hondas are appliances, well this appliance just happens to be a lot of fun, while retaining reliability, solid feel and construction, looks, and intelligent design.

    Pros: Power, handling, brakes, steering feel, comfort, controls, seats

    Cons: Interior storage room,

    Engine Puts A Smile On Your Face Especially After 5.5rpm — Great car - although engine can sound a tad tappity - easy cure though - put your right foot down harder - I find that helps especially with the race exhaust cough cough and other mods

    Pros: Rev Range,comfort

    Cons: Standard exhaust is shocking - get a race on quick - you might also want to say goodbye to the cat :)

    It's Hard To Dislike An Engine That Has More Power Per Liter Than Any Production Motor On Earth. — While it would not be the perfect choice for someone who drives for an hour in stop and go traffic both ways to work, the s2000 is one hell of a car. With a 2.2L naturally aspirated in-line four making 240 horsepower, a gearbox that many say is one of the finest ever made, and amazing handling aided by the 50-50 weight distribution, the s2000 is the essence of Honda technology.

    Pros: Watching that new POS Ford Mustang shrink in the rear view mirror as you hit V-Tech as he sluggishly shifts into third.

    Cons: To be honest, only one thing has truly bugged me about this car, and it is easily fixed: The stereo system. With the top down it is nearly impossible to hear the radio, but for about 100 bucks and two hours on a Saturday you can put in two nice speakers right behind the seats that fixes the problem.
