Perhaps you’ve been there yourself: You show up to a track day in your affordable, humble sports car, maybe even something that’s also your daily, and then the stars align and the universe opens up to shower you with SPEED that lets you blitz a $1 million hypercar.
I’ve owned countless used cars that have been abused by the Northeast’s terrible winters, that have suffered from bizarre mechanical maladies and have been downright horrible decisions on my part. But none have made it out as well as my recently purchased 184,000-mile Honda S2000.
Jalopnik got bored earlier this week and decided to hit up the Bear Mountain Car Cruise, an enthusiast event that meets every Wednesday in the summer about an hour out of Manhattan. What we saw changed us forever, including an Alpine A110, Slantnose Porsche, Saab Sonnett, and a Toyota Sera that our hearts won’t let us…
I had a 2006 BMW M5 with more than 180,000 miles dialed up in my possession the past four months or so. Well, until Sunday. It was fast, loud, fun to drive, and honestly, in pretty desperate need of repair. Instead of doing those repairs, I decided I’d trade the car for a much better car, a 2002 Honda S2000, that…
I was so overwhelmed by the presence of this Montana sky blue 2009 Honda S2000 CR that I first fixated on an oddly trivial aspect—“Is that a yellow trimmed interior?” Yes, and there are a few other details that make this special version of Honda’s roadster pop. But when you’re driving it, it’s still all about the…
When AutoGuide shared a story Monday with the headline that the Honda S2000 is “definitely never coming back, Honda exec says,” it seemed like a bold and foolish move by Honda to shut the door completely on one of its most iconic cars. But Honda isn’t, and those ideas appear to have come out of nowhere.
It’s cold, snowy and icy outside for a lot of us, so we go and swap our summer tires for the winter ones. It’s the safe thing to do... on ice and snow. Things are a little different on pavement.
Are you excited for a new Honda S2000? Well don’t be, because who knows when or even if that will actually ever happen. Another patent showing off a weird, expensive-looking mid-engine Honda has come up, though, so who knows what this could be.
Honda, a company best known for producing oddly-styled crossovers and front-wheel drive economy cars, may have once also sold an exciting rear-wheel-drive two-seater sports car, according to some historical documents and contemporary research.
I’ve always had an irrational fear of mufflers and exhausts, which I guess I can attribute to frequently losing the hair and skin off my leg from the hot pipe of my dirt bike growing up. This fear carried over to cars though, and now I get to see my fears rationalized with the use of a thermal imaging camera.
A strange yellow Honda S2000-shaped Ford Mustang crashed while leaving a local car show in Connecticut over the weekend, mystifying car experts everywhere.
Doing a burnout is about the most knuckle-dragging thing you can do in a car short of jump it while running from revenoors. That’s probably why it’s so satisfying to see one shot with a $40,000 Flir T1K thermal camera.
Now that there is a mid-engined Corvette on the horizon, all our long-awaited, long-rumored and long-demanded sports car dreams seem on the table. Even Honda might be jumping on the bandwagon of making things happen that we never thought would happen by reviving the S2000. Some sources that claim the roadster will…
In case you needed any more evidence that that Land Down Under is a strange and mysterious place, a man was able to purchase a new—yes, brand new—Honda S2000 from a dealership last month.
Honda released the S2000 in 1998 as part of a “celebration” of its 50th anniversary. Do the math and the automaker’s 70th anniversary is looming in 2018, which is apparently reason enough to validate the years of rumors of an S2000 successor.
When you track your car, you know that stuff will break. Parts fail, structural components snap, and things succumb to the extra stresses of being run at the limit. So, you might as well appreciate how hilariously awesome your own wheel looks as it skips through the grass.
This morning somebody decided the internet was going to talk about a revival of Honda’s dearly departed rear-drive purist sports car, the S2000. Maybe the prevailing malaise about the new NSX has Honda fans desperate for redemption but there’s no real reason to discuss this right now.
Think the trademark boxer rumble of a Subaru is all about the boxer engine layout? Listen to this Honda and think again.
Put this number in your head - 150. That's how many times the crank in this S2000 revolves at full tilt, every second. Not only is that absolutely mind-boggling, but it's a figure that can be repeated ad infinitum without the risk of breaking, because Honda. All this textbook hoonery can now be yours for a criminally…
