>>14234221 oh i already have myself convinced not to get one, because there's plenty of superior post 1990 c4's available. but i still wouldn't mind owning an 80's c4, it's mainly the styling though that i'm drawn to
>>14234308 Personally I prefer the earlier ones simply because of the 80's interior. That and I never liked the rounded-out backside of the 90's C4s. 90's are superior in pretty much every other way though.
>>14233994 I hate Honda owners as much as the next guy (I drive a pigfat ohv monstrosity with actual torque) but c'mon man >liveable roadster >no automatic >5 something second 0-60 >revs to 9000 rpm >handles well >available at a very reasonable used market price >easy to find in good shape Sure the fan base might be bad but unlike S13s or civics or what have you at least it's a very solid package out of the box.
>>14235727 >liveable roadster Not really any more or less "liveable" than others >no automatic Doesn't affect me >5 something second 0-60 Fair point >revs to 9000 rpm And has zero torque below 7,000 which gets old fairly quickly >handles well Other roadsters handle better >available at a very reasonable used market price Which is still 4-5x the cost of aforementioned roadsters in similar condition >easy to find in good shape No.
>>14235733 >no torque below 7000rpm have you seen an S2000 torque curve? it is fucking flat with only a small bump when vtec engages. it is extremely linear and the reason people give it shit is that they are used to cars with very regressive torque curves.
>>14235733 >Other roadsters handle better >Which is still 4-5x the cost of aforementioned roadsters in similar condition Yeah right bud. Care to tell us which roadster you can get for $4k that handles better than an s2k?
>>14233994 I'm not sure what a fan base would really do for you with an S2000. You dont need any real help. The engine is already built as high as it will go naturally aspirated, and the suspension and chassis engineering is spot on. There's really nothing to make better on the car for the average person except maybe adding a turbo if your a horsepower freak. I mean seriously, people swap F20C's into other cars so there's no real reason to do a swap of any kind or to touch the internals.
The S2000 is a god machine, albeit short lived, just like most of Hondas god machines. It's a very good demonstration of what Honda can do, but sadly, they are interested in making money so they couldn't be fucked to make another one.
Cars like the miata have a huge fan base because while the car has great potential, it's no S2000 from the factory, and so you need some help from others to test, design parts and swaps, and point out flaws in the car.
Why don't you buy an S2000 and be one of the non cancerous people of the fanbase if you really care what they think?
>>14236609 Well said. As shitty as the fan base can be for any car, it's a fallacy to let it affect your idea of the car too much. It's not like getting a s2000/wrx/bmw will instantly turn you into a douche. That decision is in your hands
>>14235780 are you looking at the hp or the torque? cause the torque stays pretty flat exept for the vtec changeover
also little known fact but the point of gears multiply torque if you didnt know so i dont understand this "doesnt have enough torque argument" when torque at then wheels is dependent on the gearing. which is stupidly short on the s2000 hence why im running at > 3500 rpm on the highway at 60 mph in 6th.
>>14238317 >Major step down in terms of comfort I don't know about you but the 200 Land Cruiser is one of the most comfortable 4WDs i've ever driven. Toyota 4WDs (sans 70 series) are uber comfortable, even the Hilux
