Honda has several reputations include the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, fourth largest auto manufacturer in the United States, second-largest auto manufacturer in Japan and the world’s largest producer of internal combustion engines of all types. Aside from their core businesses, they also manufacture garden equipment, marine engines and generators, among other consumer and industrial products.
As its first roadster, the S2000 made its debut during the company’s 50th anniversary celebration. The high-revving roadster S2000 convertible top proved popular around the world as a higher performance alternative to Mazda’s MX-5 Miata. Initially based on the AP1 platform, the later 2004 S2000 models were set on the AP2 body style that featured several updates.
Winning many design and safety awards, the S2000 is considered by many as one of the most successful sports car in automotive history. Its overall consumer satisfaction help maintain Honda’s long held reputation for quality and affordability.
