Being a fan of this site, I have to ask this question; What is the most Hoonworthy Honda sold in the past decade? With the exception of the Honda NSX (Which was really an Acura in North America) the answer would probably be the Honda S2000. Would you believe three brand new Honda S2000 models were sold this year?
Can you imagine how lucky it would be to be able to purchase a brand new Honda S2000 with a new car warranty? These cars were discontinued after the 2009 model year, and according to all things Wikipedia, Honda is still clearing out inventories throughout the world in 2010, where there were 85 sales logged in the US. I guess three more found buyers this year, but at what cost?
There was one more surprise buried deep within the Honda numbers, as there were two Honda FCX Clarity models delivered to customers during the 2011 calendar year. These cars are on short term leases, similar to the GM EV-1 from the late 90s, and have to be returned to Honda at the end of their lease. These cars are only available to a select number of California residents because of the proximity of Hydrogen refueling stations. The first Clarity models were delivered to customers in the US during the 2009 model year. It has been reported that there are 50 available here in the US.
So, what would you sell off to have the ability to purchase a brand-new Honda S2000? And is the Honda FCX Clarity a model that remotely peaks your interest? I’m sure you all have a lot of opinions.
