    He's right. Cars are getting 'better', but less interesting.

    Eventually one day in the not-too-distant future, people are going to look at car enthusiasts like we look at train enthusiasts now.

    This is why I want to own a few different cars before the inevitable “everyone is a Tesla fanboi” timeline happens, sadly I think even s2000’s are now well out of reach. You can get an e9x m3 for less than most s2000’s now, think about that.

    Checks out; I'd rather have the S2000.

    E9X M3 prices are way higher than they were too.

    I get why people like them, but I'm not that interested in them.

    And Rob.

    S2000 were awesome when you could buy an ok one for $12k. I can’t bring myself to buy another with prices then last 3 or so years.

    I loved my S2k. The only reason I don't still have it is because it's a great third car, and I don't yet have garage space for that many. I definitely get why some people wouldn't like them though. Loud, slow unless it's being driven at 11/10ths, overpriced.

    It checked a few boxes for me, the primary ones probably being 'as close to a motorcycle without being a motorcycle', and nostalgia. I don't think I can name another car that so closely aligns with the intersection of those two things (for me).

    I rather maintain an S2K than an RX7. I probably could maintain 5 S2Ks for the same price as one (functional and running) RX7.

    Sure, but it fits the bill of nostalgia and motorbike feel

    That's a good one actually, but disoblige nailed it. Not only is it overpriced (even more than S2k), maint would be a killer. I value Honda reliability, even more so on a car that would be rarely driven.
