      Against my better judgement, I'm gonna subscribe to this thread. The E30 thread made me feel like I need one already. A few more S2k pic posts and I'll be needing one of those as well.

      DON'T BUY IT!! Only 153-162lb.ft of torque. You could die going uphill...

      Do you guys ever wonder almost no one hate S2000 like they hate BRZ/FRS??

      The same reason no one seems to hate the cars posted on here for being slammed or have huge wings mounted on them. S2000's are an exception to everything simply because they'r just that bad ass.

      Wait... WHAT?? How can someone be a member of TCL since 2000 and not remember that the low torque of the S2000 has been a point of raving mad arguments ever since the car came out? It has ALWAYS been a hot button topic.

      droptop, god himself created the shifter/clutch/flywheel combo, 20% more power, and comes with legitimate sticky and wider tires from the factory.

      And people hate the S2000 too, just not as much from what I can tell.

      The power is the big problem for some folks, at least the S2000 makes HP up top.. The S2000 would literally beat the BRZ by about 10 car lengths in the 1/4 mile for example, and the S2000 isn't even that fast going straight..

      That is what makes the car fun in my opinion. It's engaging. Honestly, the shifter is part of the magic of the car. If it had even an average shifter I wouldn't enjoy the car 1/2 as much as I do.

      People will find something to complain about with everything.


      It's funny because I actually like downshifting and rev matching, its a blast with this thing. My old Mazdaspeed3 made way more torque than the S2, but I prefer the S2000 power delivery.. It is not fun to rev to 5800 RPM and need to shift.

      the s2000 (in base non-CR) form was never this expensive. it should be noted that an AP1 without options was in the 32k range...which given similar equipment (leather seats) in a BRZ you're within 5k or less in price.

We haven't talked price, but KBB really inflates its value thanks to the low mileage. Last year of the AP1, which has its appeal.


      I recently picked up a first year model, 2000 with only 13k miles. As you can imagine, mint, 1 owner, never modified, even still has the original tires which need replacing asap.

      I'd say just pick up the best condition S2000 you can find.

      OH, quoting me out of context.

      S2000's were not 40K either, MSRP of $32K when they first sold.

      Anyway, you took my quote out of context and it means nothing. I was answering why perhaps more hate is geared towards the BRZ vs the S2000.

      Congratulations, maybe you have a future in politics.

      The test of the machine is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn't any other test. If the machine produces tranquility it's right. If it disturbs you it's wrong until either the machine or your mind is changed.
