The S2000

I think the S2000 is the best roadster out there, thats why i have one, hehe, but i mean its faster than the Nissan 350 z roadster, and the Z4 and the boxster,and sure is alot faster than the Audi TT. The z4 is a lot of mony and isnt as fast as the S2000, so why spend all that money when you cean get a s2000 for 30, 000 and its faster. Also, The s2000 has the best handling out of all of them. It's a great car all around, and the redline is 9000 rpm's!


tell me what you think the best roadster is, this is just my opinion.

It also won't do 0-60 in 5.4. Let the boy play with his Hot Wheels now, okay?

Check your facts- the 350Z destroys the S2000...The S2000 doesn't have the HP or torque to touch the Z- I've smoked all the little S2000s I've come across in my Z...The 350 runs against the Porsche Carrera for competition, and while it doesn't beat that vehicle, it comes close and the S2000 is a joke compared to the Carrera...

I'd love to see this turbocharged 2.0 Honda engine...Interesting...And while we're pointing out how wrong you are, outhandles the Z my ass...I'd pay to see an S2000 owner outhandle my 350Z Track...Or my G35 Sedan, for that matter...The S2000 is a girl's roadster- it's there for looks...

yeah yeah whatever the s2000 is better than the Z, why dont you go read road and track, the z is not as fast, and does not handle as good, so what if it has more torgue, the s2000 is better in acceleration.

HAHAHAHA!! That's hilarious...

Not only do I own a Z, I worked for Nissan...You go right ahead and pretend you know what you're talking about, though...Go ahead and tell yourself that Honda's 2.0 can pull against the VQ35DE...I've ripped every S2000 I've come across...Since you're such an expert maybe you can tell Honda to correct their VTEC so it can get some torque...Where the Hell do you think acceleration comes from?? It isn't all about HP little boy...The Boxster can't hang, the Z3 and Z4 can't hang, and the pitiful excuse for a roadster S2000 gets dominated by bad auto drivers in a 350...If the S2000 can't hang with the Porsche Carrera but the Z can, how is the S2000 faster?? Thanks for the laugh though...

Well.... not actually. Let's look at the Aug 2003 comparison in Car and Driver magazine, a magazine that actually tests the performance of their cars instead of using manufacturers stats like R&T (find link below).

http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp?section_id=15&article_id=1938&page_num ber=1

While I'll agree that the S2000 stops and goes around a skidpad better, the 350Z is most certainly faster, quicker, and runs faster lap times at the track they tested on.

So where does this leave us. Well to me it's obvious you're well practiced in spewing misinformation, otherwise known as a bullshitter. If you're going to steal your "DNA" blurb from C&D, at least read the entire magazine, not just the part you want. Have a wonderful day. Comments?

Finally, someone who knows that R&T doesn't research their own stats...I'm really having a tough time finding a factory turbo under the hoods of any S2000s as well, VW...I'll concede the skid pad and the braking (although I believe the Track's Brembos clinch that category), but no way is an S2000 blowing away a Z...

Go right ahead and believe everything you read, "Boy"...Those of us who actually are enthusiasts and drivers make judgments based upon experience...Bottom line: the S2000 is a women's coupe that doesn't belong in the same breath as 350Z- it's not a true sports car...
