7: Honda S2000
The S2000 was designed and sold by Honda at the start of the new millennium. It’s no slouch on the track and gives the Nissan Z a serious run for its money. The roadster is precision designed to conform around the driver. The engine is bulletproof, and its reliability is in line with what you’d expect from a Honda model (via Motoring Research).
The later models were scarce, and there was a refreshed design. The S2000 isn’t as expensive as you’d expect a Honda from this generation to be. Its build quality is top-notch, and the parts are cheap to replace. On the heels of a new Acura Integra hitting the market, there has never been a better time to check out the S2000.
