Worth noting Honda dealers struggled to sell S2000's and the numbers declined sharply, I wouldn't be surprised if you could drive off the lot in an S2000 in 2009 for less than the average FRS in it's first year of sales.

I still haven't quite digested that there have been more Toyobaru's sold worldwide than S2000's...
I'm not surprised. The S2K was a pricey 2 seater convertible, and there was a cheaper convertible alternative (mx-5). Also the recession probably really hurt S2k sales starting around 2006.
