Introduction

I test drive a S2000 and put down a deposit immediately after. A day later I changed my mind. Thrilling car, not practical right now. But in a year or so I will get one once I've paid off my daily driver.

Why the 2007 Honda S2000?

Exterior styling

Sits much lower than I expected when I saw it in person. Classic sports car profile, long front and wedge shaped. Looks great.

Interior styling

Great ergonomics for focused driving. Minimalist cabin deign, no bluetooth, obvious cup holders, or GPS screen, just a stick shift, steering wheel and great driving position. The seats are great if you have a small to medium build, I loved them. Overall, it's a really nice, driver focused, no fuss interior. You feel like you are sitting in the car, wearing it. Great with the top down and the engine roaring. As close an experience in a car that I've had to riding a motorbike.

Color choices

Primary colors plus black, white and silver. All look great. No longer manufactured so you can only find used examples to own. I'd focus on the condition of the car and not worry about color. The blue car I drove did look terrific, and if I could, I would buy that color.

Powertrain performance

Excellent once you get above 5000 rpm. Engine sounds so good and gears shift so effortlessly that I didn't mind working to get to the peak power range of 5000-8000 rpm! Very rigid frame, no flex, great in corners

Reliability & durability

Honda's in general are great. Originally this was a 30k + vehicle. Honda really took great care in putting it together. If you can find a gently used model it should go forever. Speaking as a former honda owner.

Why Not the 2007 Honda S2000?

Safety & braking

You can't defeat the passenger airbag, so the car is dangerous for little passengers. I Wouldn't put a child in this car.

Price or payments

Hard to find one in good condition at a reasonable price. From an owners standpoint, thats good for resale value.

Interior styling

I've heard that the seats are easy to remove, a target for thieves. You can buy aftermarket locking bolts and etch the vin on the bottom of the seat frame to discourage thieves. Note: this is not my experience, only just what I've read from other owners.
