S2000 CR Club Racer Edition CR stands for "club racer," conjuring up the good old days when guys drove their sports cars to the track, raced them, and then, if the racing gods were smiling, drove them home again

The CR reminds me of the time when I picked up my ITR, awesome feeling!
Ditto ! Of all of the cars I have had thus far, the feeling of the first time driving each one of them was unforgettable.

To clarify, the production # is the last 3 digits of the VIN right? If so, I'm #20.

Nope, if you look at the first post... you can use the link to find the conversion.


You're number 4!

Good thread i like it. I would also like to see some stickys on CR threads like maybe our own subforum. We could all post any problems we had with the cr any mods we have done to make it faster. Like me my vent borke honda replaced it for free of course. And i would like to see a badge just for us as well. We have a very rare car weather people would like to admit it or not 668 cars in a year is very rare

I started having all these thoughts and questions after all these "what price CR" buying threads...

Some of my thoughts:
How cool would it be to know whose car came off the line next to yours. Especially if there were manufacturing issues that came up.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to trace the history and heritage of CRs as they are sold over the years?

What conclusions can we make about CR owners vs. "regular" S2000 owners that may impact resale in the future?

In talking with people, there are quite a few current (non-CR) S2000 owners that would only pick up a CR if they needed to replace their cars. There are also quite a few that are "waiting" a little longer to pick one up. When the current owners are looking to replace their off-lease, high mileage non-CRs with used CRs in a few years... things may get tight.

I think with the CR not having a soft top, it prevents some of the casually interested new buyers from picking up this car compared to a "regular" S2000. This may also decrease the turnover we see with the other S2000s.

I'll run some stats in the future, but there are a lot of repeat S2000 owners who are unlikely to ever get rid of this car. That may impact the turnover and availability of these cars on the secondhand market.

The only people I've seen purchase and resell so far are first-time S2000 owners that didn't quite know what they were getting into.

My personal hypothesis is that the CR won't follow the trends of the "regular" S2000 resale market. I'm doing the Internet "research" to support my hypotheses...
I completely agree with your theory Ckit. I used to own a MY01 S2000, and know what it's like to have to one. This time around, I am planning on keeping this one for a long time.

Although, I did have some 2nd thoughts a one point.. Because, some requirements for transportation changed after having a baby. The main thing, is that resell value really hit for those of us that bought the CR brand new for $35k +.. Now, it's barely pushing 21 in the used market.

I figure I should just keep this one..

21K for used CR? Where are you getting this number?
