2000 S2000, or a 2004 350z

I am interested in both and am looking for another car as soon as I get rid of my current one. Anyone who owns either of these have an opinon on these cars? Im really leaning towards the S2000 but still am in love with the 350 .

Thanks

If you type 350z vs s2000 in the search you'll come up with a few threads about this.


I'd go the s2000 as well.

The S2000 looks like a penis. The 350Z is actually attractive. Your call.

I think it's the other way round....the S2000 looks like a proper sports car IMO, and revs to nearly 9,000rpm......when you have whining like that, who needs a turbo? lol

A little bit, but the RX-8 has some shape and style too it.

S2000 - best car in Top Gear survey so you're not gonna be dissapointed by it.
350Z has a bigger engine though so if you feel that the lack of torque in a S200 is too much then go for the Z.

Hmmm... I'd probably go with the torqueless wonder on this one... the S2000

Although, both cars are pretty good. I would say its your call.

This one's tough, I love both of them. If it were me buying one, I think I'd take the light high reving sports car as opposed to the Japanese muscle car.

350z. Looks better and is quicker.
But more importantly, in order to achieve decent acceleration in an S2000, you have to launch it at about 5000 rpm. Ridiculous.

Real world acceleration (5-60 mph...rolling starts) are terrible for the S2000. VERY terrible. 7.2 seconds. Almost 2 seconds slower than the 350z.

Away from the track the S2000 is a stupid car. VERY tight interior, NO real hard top, and SLOW acceleration numbers.
And for all the S2000 supporters claiming track superiority, the 350z is consistently faster around a track.
