Okay, if someone dropped a 458 Spider in my lap for my S2000, I might bite.

Ditto as long as I didn't have to pay for the maintenance and repairs, cant afford it. The car would see 8-12k miles a year.

Ferrari or Aston's V8 really sound different from their V12 brothers; more vicious and fast revving. I wish Ferrari did more to make it sound like something on start up. Aston and Shelby has that one beat.

I got rid of my s2k effectively for a c5z which gas ruined virtually every 4 cylinder car for me. It didnt take a Ferrari.

Trq is nice and fun on the street. But its not everything. C5 is a worthy alternative for the money for any duty street or track though. Its a bit big for me personally, as I think the S hits the sweet spot for balance between high speed stability while great go kart flick ability and fun. Throw a Supercharger on it and its pretty perfect.

The c5z is definitely bigger than the S, and I prefer small cars, but the upside is that you get a good amount of room more than the s2000. And the c5z is absolutely no slouch in the corners, considering its power it's less twitchy than the s2000. And if you want to start talking mods, I mean LS motor.

Only letdown for me was its interior, bot so much the dash and ugly steering wheel, I got used to it, it's those God awful seats. Swap those, do a double din head unit conversion, and it's as good as a budget car gets.

I didn’t really like the sound of the Comptech supercharger on the AP2 I used to own. It reminded me of a cement mixer. Car sounded much better stock.

My ranking for S2k sounds:
ITBs >>>>>> N/A + intake + testpipe >> supercharger

Also, wouldn't trade my S2K at this point - since money is a factor....

If money wasn't a factor, I'd probably go with a different aircooled Porsche build that would be much more cost efficient

I agree, I heard a few superchargers that made more clanking noises than good noises, I never liked the sound of them.
