The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Honda S2000 is a purist's sports car, with the resulting compromises in room and refinement. The 2009 Saturn Sky looks great and in the Red Line trim is a blast to drive, but its ergonomics and quality keep it from truly competing with the Miata.
