That's so awesome!!! Bet it's a ton of fun to scoot around in, and they still look great - looks contemporary even next to that ND. Is it agonizingly slow? Bravo, sir.

After I bought my E90 M3, I remember telling a friend that I don't want my next car to be any faster, but I do want it to be lighter. A year or two later I bought my Elise, so I definitely kept my...

It's been almost 4 months with the Lotus so I thought I'd give an update on living with it. I've put over 1,000 miles on it (which is 3x what the last owner added over 3 years), including a ~200 mile...

There are things you can do to improve the mediocre MT. Installing an F10 M5 weighted shift knobs made the throws shorter and more positive, a substantial improvement. They also have short shift...

Thanks, y'all. Thought I'd add some of the amusing quirks I've found and read about so far:

It's so light that it's recommended to use R-compound tires because there's not enough weight to press...

Drove an NSX V2 last summer and you are right - incredibly fast and big power at any revs and any gear. And it definitely looks truly exotic. The "sense of occasion" thing did leave me cold though....

S2000 is getting old. Some of us may just want a change, as well. Haven't driven one myself but definitely interested. Sure, the Miata doesn't have the S2000's awesome engine, among other things. ...

I don't see this at all. S2000 engine/trans isn't particularly expensive on the used market for a sports car. Plus most people don't daily drive these, and there are tons that have performed well...

Tired of waiting. 26 years between NSX v1 and NSX v2, and more than 20 years between the S2000's debut and something else (pretty safe to assume we have no chance of seeing anything before 2020) is...
