Well, it's been awhile since the S2000 went out of production, but I still think the design looks fresh. What does TCL think.
I think it still looks good. Not in a modern, could-be-a-brand-new-design-today sort of way, but it is aging gracefully.

The car has a timeless, angular design.
I hesitate to say this, but I categorize it similar to a 1967 Jaguar XK-E, in that it will always look the part.
2000 BMW M Roadster - 5-speed
2005 Lotus Elise - 6-speed - R. I. P.
2012 Mini Countryman S - 6-speed
2013 Subaru Crosstrek XV - 5-speed
2013 Honda Civic LX Sedan - Nannymobile
I love the design but what will make it stand the test of time is everything else that makes it up
Every time my neighbor see's me he tells me how much he likes the car. He also thought it was brand new and had to sit down when I told him it's an '02.

pardon my 'merican
I think it does. I routinely get asked if my car is a new or newer car. It's got some really classic body lines with the long hood, sharp top crease lines, and smoother sides. I have also always liked the look of the tail lights, which look sporty without looking like craptastic altezza's.
Does the design stand the test of time? No, not really
Does the car overall stand the test of time? Without a doubt, especially with where Honda is right now

DBP MkIV .:R - Gone but not forgotten
I think the Headlights kill it. It looks in whats the word....Sedan-ish
In fact ever since pop up's where banned I think most car companies strugged to make their head lights look Sport-ish in sports cars . I think even the new GT86/BRZ looks tooo sedan like to me from the front
Now if you want to know how to do it right just look at the Murcielago
I think the S2K has aged very gracefully, the Ap2 configuration fixed some funny design bugs IMHO, I used to have an 02 S2k, what a superb car, now, headlights old vs new ...
ON the NSX case Honda did a good job refreshing, but the pop ups look better IMHO
On the S2k case, the Ap2 looks overall much better

i'll have to throw my favorite pic of my s2000 now...
i will say the bigger AP2 white wheels make it look a lot "younger" or more sporty. i do like the appearance of the AP2 nose a little bit more as well though. otherwise i see them as equal.
Saw one on a motorcycle ride Sunday. Thought to myself, "that's still a sexy car"
