Default Best All-Around Sports Car: Honda S2000

Coming into this test, no one gave the S2000 any serious consideration. It was simply a car meant to fill a spot as Honda's sports-car representative. (The Acura NSX was left out because it's likely to be discontinued next year or be replaced by another model.) And since this head-turning 2-seater met all of the sports-car criteria for this test..."what the heck," we said.

"What the heck?" was more like it after a few laps in the S2000. This supposedly old car cut up the West Loop like a skilled surgeon with a scapel, posting a sub-70-sec. lap time. And its amazingly tossable, fun-to-drive nature put it among the favorites of the day on both tracks.

"The balance of this car is just great. You get mild understeer at turn-in, but it's so mild that you can be hard on the throttle early to get good exit speed. The car felt really light through the corners, and the brakes were good. Because of this combination, I was able to brake deep into a corner and get right back on the throttle," Millen said.

This isn't exactly a recent review. Here I was thinking "Oh wow, R&T STILL says this?"

That's a pretty random thing to post with no context, 15 years after it was published... But cool story, bro!
