I like both cars, but man for some reason during the 24hr Nurburgring racing event last year in SP3 class, the 86 just beat the S2k by far. LOL
That tell something the 86 can do.

ERMAHGERD, someone just traded a Rio Yellow Pearl '07 S2K with 6,000 original miles into my dealer for a WRB Limited 6MT. If that's not tempting I don't know what is!! If only it were a different color; I'd never own a yellow car, not even a Lamborghini

If it was black I'd ask you for the dealership information so I could buy it. Unusual seeing one with very low miles. Still kicking myself for not buying a 2008 CR brand new for $29K. Yes, I worked down the deal that low. CR's weren't moving when they were available.

29k? Damn. They're going for 28k still with 50k miles over at s2ki.

What did the CR retail for, $35k?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we're gonna have the highest-priced non-CR in the U.S. NADA says retail on this car is $25,825. Oh well, at that price I'd rather just get a BRZ.

The CRs were selling for $28k new back in 07/08. No one wanted them at the time & they were just sitting on the lot.

Damn, that's a steal. Wish I wasn't still in school during that time.

They were down to 24.5k new at one point....

Kinda like how the MKIV Supra wouldn't sell, and are now worth their sticker price if clean...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my friend. I don't like yellow cars for some reason. I don't think I like the color yellow in general. I could tolerate this yellow but that's about it:

Damn I was so over my 06 S2K at the time I wish I would have known that.. I would have bought one. Probably would have sold it a year later, but still
