Lovely! I sold my Nurburgring/Suzuka Blue S2000 to buy the FL5, would've been great to keep it and have the pair together!

All I’d want is a gen 1 NSX to make it a trio. But that ain’t gonna happen.

Y'all just wait until I clear out enough space in the garage to park the FL5 and Del Sol side-by-side.

That's when the real envy will start! 😆

I've wanted an S2000 for way too long, and missed the boat when they were readily available. I've been looking an found a mint condition, all original and original owner AP1 with 73K miles! The family was selective on who they wanted to sell the car too and luck was on my side! The car feels so raw compared to the FL5, and both will be enjoyed equally! As you can see--even back in 2002, markups were a thing.

Great pair! Inflation adjusted, that sticker price would be $55,889 for the S2000 today!

Geez, even in 2002 they had $8k markups?!?! :eek: I don't remember that.

Seems we're on the same wavelength...:)

Do you have spacers on your CTR? Also, is that stock height? Looks great. Thanks!!

I could have bought a nice new 08 for $29.9K or a nice 07 with 5K miles for $27 but instead I bought a used Boxster S. Had I known they were going to quit making them :bat: I would have sprung for the new red and black 08.

When I was looking for the s2k recently, I also entertained the idea of a 987 Boxster S. Driving them back to back the s2k just suited me better plus, I don't like the idea of having to fix something on the boxster.

The boxster shifter was not that good and the car despite having hydraulic steering rack, did not compare to the directness and sharp feeling of the ap1 steering. The boxster motor had far more power, but straight line speed wasn't what i was looking for.

I chose the Boxster S just because it had a lot more torque and practical storage. It wasn't a bad car BUT, it did have some potential and expensive issues that I wasn't aware of when I bought it. It led to an 80s 930 which was a good thing. By that time though, the S2000 was out of production and prices shot up so I missed my chance. Maybe I'll find one in the future... hard to say.
