Default comments from a porsche driver

Just wanted to let all you s2000 fanatics know that I rented one on a recent trip to Las Vegas and it was the most fun I've had in a car in a long time. If I wasn't already driving a '95 911 I would be ordering a 2002 model immediately. I had driven with a friend in his 2000 version but he has never taken the car over 5000 rpm. What a waste. Just like driving an Accord with handling. Great interior and very comfortable. The look is just aggressive enough imho.
Waiting for spring...

Did you just hear that noise?
That was me screaming in pain at the mere thought of owning a S2000 and never getting up into VTEC.

Honestly, if I could find a dealer that would offer me fair tradein value for my 911 I would consider trading for a 2002 model. Note that I said consider. It would be a tough call. Obviously I was very impressed with the s2000

I've said, since the first day of owning the car, that I would only trade the car in for a Ferrari 355. Anything else, no. (and I don't want to hear any "You could see such and such car and buy 2 S2000"). The point is, I do not feel there is a better car out there and although I would never pay retail for a Ferrari, it would take a straight swap on a 355 for me to give it up. (The Z06 is a damned nice car, but they're big, use up tires, gas and don't come as a convertible)

That said, I'm considering selling the Stook for something that isn't a replacement.

You are entitled to your opinion no matter how misdirected it might be. If someone would give me a 355 for a s2000 I would sell the Ferrari then buy a 911 for myself and a couple of new s2000 in different colours to suit my moods.
Btw on the aforementioned trip to Las Vegas I also drove a C5. A big hunk of plastic that goes very fast in a straight line. It got around the corners fast enough but I never felt like I was in control. The s2000 felt like a fine surgical instrument and much more enjoyable to drive.
You would tire of the 355...imho
