If you want a fun two seater. I would recomend the S2000 over the RX8. I have owned RX7's and drove a loaner S2000. They are compatible in handling/power but you get almost twice the MPG in the Honda.

Top Gear had it on one of their episode and as per remarks of Jermy its one hell of a car to own for fun but not a daily driver probably. Guess what they do to it in Pakistan?? install a kit and fuel it with natural gas! That low compression pathetic torge engine on natural gas isnt even good for drill machine yet it still drives on the road albeit in the lane reserved for donkey carts!!
All I can say is WOW. CNG? WTF?

The car is supposed to be almost perfectly balanced. I'd bet it would be a blast to drive left and right and up and down.

My Son had loaners for 2 weeks, an S2000, and an S2200. Both fun and incredible revving little rockets, I liked the 2000 better.

P.S. Doesn't Drewprof have an RX?

Just had a little earth quake. Welcome to California.
I think, I'll have another scotch. Won't need a stirrer.

Yes the car does handle very well. I wonder if it is reliable and if it can be used as a daily driver. I enjoyed the very high revving engine but the torque sucked even though the car will get up and go.

Actually, it was just a joke to wind you religious freaks up. Looks like it worked...

Now, shouldn't you be on your knees, like a bitch, praying to an imaginary man in the sky? Or, is it not time yet?
