Regular Car Reviews: 2000 Honda S2000

Published on Nov 17, 2014 922,559 views

The Honda S2000 is the Final Fantasy 6 of cars. The S2000 is the car you are to like if you want to be cool. Braggers like the S2000 because all the power lies at the top end where they never have to reach and face-facts. This car isn't as fast or powerful as everyone says it is.

Comments
  • Mike Tython
    Mike Tython 2 года назад I love the fact that Honda made ZERO automatic versions of this car. Plus, the S2K never made Honda money, by most accounts it cost them a lot of money to keep the it in production. This thing is like a gift from Honda to their enthusiast fans. You'd be a fool not to accept it.
  • Stig Msr
    Stig Msr 4 года назад The creepiest thing about owning an S2000 is other S2000 owners. They take the "Jeep wave" too far. You see the wave then they make a U-turn and follow you to talk about S2000's. It happened all the time. Friends that didn't believe me I'd let borrow my car and they all experienced it. 
  • PapaWheelie
    PapaWheelie 3 недели назад Stig Msr - I don’t believe it, can I borrow it for a while? 😉 If I was building my own Jay Leno garage I would definitely have one of these. Probably not in red though

  • CrazyLegsMcGee
    CrazyLegsMcGee 4 года назад Lol it's like a little club. I experienced the same thing when I had my AP2. It's like motorcycles, I can pull up to a red-light and have an insta-buddy lol.
  • shaft9000
    shaft9000 4 года назад It depends where you live. Around here s2000 drivers are mellow on the street because you can always take it to a track or the canyons to get yer jollies. And in L.A. there are much more "wow" cars for people to geek over, visually. I really like the wolf-in-miata-clothes factor :)
  • Yea Right

    ssonsk 4 года назад That never happened to me when I had my s2k. :/
  • GammaLoo
    GammaLoo 4 года назад I have experienced the exact thing before, for a very strange car, an old 1989 Acura Integra R, my first car. Strange dude had one much like it and ran up beside me on the highway and tried to have a conversation about them at 55. Same dude managed to come across me at my retail job weeks and miles later, tried to start up a conversation again. He quickly realized how creepy it was, never saw him again.  Luckily I only get nods and revs from my fellow Pontiac G8 GT owners, we aren't assholes... yet
  • Stig Msr
    Stig Msr 4 года назад #S2K2014 I actually live in NC. I have a buddy in upstate NY and it's happened to him too but not as often as me maybe it was my black color over his silver. Not saying everyone with an S2K is like that but y'all have some crazy love for that car.
  • George Castanza
    George Castanza 4 года назад I've never experienced anything like that... you must live up north. because that's def. an up north thing to do.
  • TrickStatus
    TrickStatus 4 года назад Yeah I was at a gas station, sweating my balls off and this dude walks up to my car as i'm about to leave and sticks his head in the window and starts talking to me about his s2000.

  • Commander Hale
    Commander Hale 9 месяцев назад zach miller that’s also true, I could do that, but I already swapped it with a BMW M3 series engine with a K26 turbo setup.
  • zach miller
    zach miller 9 месяцев назад @Commander Hale you would be better off with a k series. There are more parts availiable and everything is cheaper, and with basic bolt ons they make just as much power. You could probably use a lot of the Miata swap parts too.
  • Paths GFX

  • C~GT
    C~GT 2 года назад They do get looked at that way if u leave em stock, that's y u see alot of engine mod's of them. S/Charger kits are popular here for s2000's. MX5's have tonnes of stuff going on there from stock motors with turbo's to 13b's (na and turbo) to toyota 1uzfe v8's. I'd imagine the LS is popular today but I havn't being paying any attention to that part of the scene for a few years now.

  • LowFlyin'

  • MrGovenator1
    MrGovenator1 4 года назад The most important thing about this car though is that its suppose to be fun to drive. This car doesn't need to be fast in a straight line. It follows the same line of thinking as the Miata, not a fast car, but fun and rewarding to drive. 
  • Digi tal
    Digi tal 3 месяца назад It's fun. But don't commute in it, especially in traffic. I used to commute in my 2001 for a while... (bad idea). I'd be so tired after driving it for an hour... the S2 is bit tricky to start off and drive smoothly in traffic. and the center tunnel gets hot as hell.
  • T Series

  • 177SCmaro
    177SCmaro Год назад (изменено) Mr.PetrolHead Specific output is one of the least important aspects to a performance engine. If you don't believe me let get two identical cars, you take the "efficient" 220HP K20 and I'll take the "humiliating" 500HP LS7 and well see which car performs better. Another fun thing to do might be to put both engine's on a scale watch you scratch your head wondering how them yanks managed to get that much power and displacement out of a pushrod engine only slightly heavier and much less top heavy than a DOHC 4 valve I4 with a 1/3 the displacement.
  • Ceteris Paribus
    Ceteris Paribus 2 года назад maninredhelm You know not everyone lives in the US where everyone and their mother has a V8 engined car ( with humiliating hp/litter)... right? Here in Europe we have high taxes on high cc engines, so a corvette is out if the question. The S2k is not a slow car by any means, 0-62mph in 6sec is not slow, and they hold value way better than any Corvette could ever imagine (except the C2). As an American you are obsessed with drag races, and view anything with less than 500bhp "slow". But the rest of the world disagrees. The S2k is a very good car and follows a wiser philosophy of momentum, agility, lightness and not big power, shit interior and plastic body panels that are made out of plastic worse than that of legos.
  • Stonefate
    Stonefate 2 года назад MrGovenator1 Yeah, I think it was a great car and IMO it was fairly quick, not extremely fast, but quick enough to not be slow.
  • Myan K
    Myan K 3 года назад I can't imagine the S2K being so unpleasant to drive that you'd prefer being seen driving a Miata.

"OH YEAH, BABY, YEAH YOURE SUCH A BAD GIRL, OH ILL MAKE YOU REV TO 9000, ILL RIDE YOU LIKE A MOTORCYCLE THAT YOUR ENGINE IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN, OH AHHH MY V-TECH IS ABOUT TO KICK IN.. OYYYYYYYEEE"

  • maninredhelm
    maninredhelm 4 года назад @philip lee The C6, S2k and MX-5 are all front engine, rear drive, two-seat convertibles with naturally aspirated engines. (The C5 and C7 are not contemporaries of the S2k.)  Using asking prices of 5 year old models as a guide, the price jump from a MX-5 to a S2k is roughly the same as the jump from S2k to C6.  Each has about 60% of the power and 90% of the weight of the next most expensive car.  Why wouldn't they be comparable?
  • Bill Kerr
    Bill Kerr 4 года назад I test drove an S2k then bought a Miata back in '06. The Honda felt just like a civic in traffic, where we drive most. the Miata was a hoot at track days and on regular roads.

    MrGovenator1 4 года назад @philip lee Obviously there is more to it. But you said "How the fuck can you compare an S2000 to a C6?" Well, convertible is comparing them. And if you were cross shopping used convertibles, these two would obviously come up. 
  • philip lee
    philip lee 4 года назад @MrGovenator1 That's it? LOL come on now. The C6 and the Honda S2000 are complete different cars. 
  • MrGovenator1
    MrGovenator1 4 года назад @philip lee Does the top come off? Yes, simple as that.
  • philip lee
    philip lee 4 года назад @maninredhelm how the fuck can you compare an S2000 to a C6? I'd take an S2000 over a C6 anyfucking day. 
  • MrGovenator1
    MrGovenator1 4 года назад @CaliPatriot88 Yes, I feel the same exact way.
  • CaliPatriot88
    CaliPatriot88 4 года назад @MrGovenator1 Yeah the C6 felt cheap in a lot of ways, the C7 however made my jaw drop. I still can't believe it's a Corvette.
  • MrGovenator1
    MrGovenator1 4 года назад @CaliPatriot88 Its more so the quality. The exterior looks awesome, and the interior is finally some nice materials. 
  • CaliPatriot88
    CaliPatriot88 4 года назад @MrGovenator1 C5s are better than the C6s in my opinion. 
  • MrGovenator1
    MrGovenator1 4 года назад @maninredhelm I don't know if I could get a C6. With the new C7s, I don't think I could ever look back at the previous generation. 
  • maninredhelm
    maninredhelm 4 года назад That's the other direction you can go in.  You can C6 or you can MX-5.  If you S2k to its potential, you might as well C6.  If you don't, you might as well MX-5.

  • Fake Name
    Fake Name 4 месяца назад Sorry kids, but as the only other adult in this comment section, and as someone who currently owns both cars, I'm gonna have to give it to Sean, the Miata corners far better than the S2K
  • wuz beast
    wuz beast 4 месяца назад @Sean Kurth you ever watch hot version?? miatas get dusted by s2000s and fds on there whenever theyre racing. Top cars on that show are the js racing s2000 and the feed rx7 fd. the js s2000 has 350 hp and a 4.1 final drive where as the feed fd has 450 hp and a 4.77 final drive and yet the s2000 still keeps up, they end those races with tie almost everytime and that just goes to show how great of a car the s2000 is.
  • BASITH PH
    BASITH PH 11 месяцев назад Paul Tiplea S2000 is better than Miata
  • Mike Tython
    Mike Tython 2 года назад Sean Kurth Bro thats crazy, if they're both stock, the s2k obliterates the miata, especially on curves. I own a miata, and driving it through corners is all about keeping up your momentum. Since its so slow and well balanced, its easy to take corners and keep your full speed, but if you lose any of that speed, it takes a looooooong time to get back there. But the S2000's also well balanced, and has more power to show for it thanks to that DOHC VTEC which keeps up the power as you downshift into a turn. So its ability to power though corners will beat the momentum riding miata any day of the week.
  • Alejandro Ochoa
    Alejandro Ochoa 2 года назад +Sean Kurth You have no valid points here. Stop. Stop Now.
  • Adam Locsi
    Adam Locsi 2 года назад Comparing a car and saying the miata is faster in the corners is talking about driving it at the limit and us blantently wrong.
  • Paul Tiplea
    Paul Tiplea 2 года назад Adam Locsi Why does that make one ignorant and why is that even relevant? These are consumer cars meant to be driven on the street, not track cars. Over 90% of people who drive either of these cars will never compete or take them to a track. You're saying that pretty much almost everyone's opinion is invalid and ignorant?
  • Adam Locsi
    Adam Locsi 2 года назад Ignorant people really shouldn't talk about what car is better for what. You probably have never even driven a car in closed enviroment competition.
