I second Dippy at that. Its the S2000 for me too.

Eagerly awaiting the M roadster for the Z4 series. With 400 hp, it will annhilate the SLK55 for sure.

BTW why no SLK? It pretty much does need mention here.

Porsche Boxster S for me. If by any chance, that's not available, I might think of the Honda S2000.

Porsche Boxster : Naah, its a chick car (stuck with me from the US days). And I will never consider it a true Porsche.
Audi TT : Lack of RWD, Teady bear looks,
BMW Z4 : Couldnt ever live with the looks
Nissan 350Z : Second best of this list.

Honda S2000 : Now we are talking. Awesome handling, F1 style driver seating position, great brakes, great after-market support for mods. Butttttttttt

Have you ever high-revved a Vtec? At 9000 rpm?

S2000 for me too. As close as you can get to a motorcycle!

Boxster never really appealed to me from day one. Too bath-tubish for my liking and its stuck with a "cheap Porsche" image.

Audi TT: Really like it a lot, however I much prefer the coupe to the cabrio.

350Z: Again, love the shape, but prefer the Coupe here too.

Z4: Ugh...don't want to drive something with a Baboon's rear!

Even if the SLK was there, my choice would remain the same, though I the SLK would be a very close 2nd and actually the one I'd buy if I were living here instead of dreamworld!

YES !!

So, as the link above suggests, obviously i am gonna go with the S2K as top choice as well!
None of the other cars in the poll do it for me. The S2k is such a little pocketrocket....

I think a tough poll would be the 2L 9krpm s2k VS the 2.2L 8krpm S2k.....hmmm

The S2000 for me too. Though it looks too plain.
Second and very close comes the 350Z.
Never liked the Boxster.

S2000 all the way. Nothing can beat that high revving engine, which has been brought down a bit in the 2004 version. Max revvs is come from 9000rpm to 8200rpm, but they say the car is faster than the older version, due to the increased cc and torque.

it is kind of outdated, but still looks hot, i will try and find this awesome kit a friend of mine got put on his car..and with full FI...you have to see it to belive that the car can do...awesome stuff..(s2000)

another net pal tuned a Z to 650+ along with a G35c tuned to 800+ can you belive that and the handling wouldnt depreciate much..these are awesome handling cars man..

you could go wrong with either an s2000 or a Z and if you want killer looks, luxury and power then have to be the G coupe..but we are talking about roadsters so S and then Z
