Honda S2000 vs Cobalt ss?

Ap2 honda vs the turbo cobalt. Which one is faster? Which one would have lower insurance and which one would have a better aftermarket.(probably the honda) and is the s2000 live able since it only has 2 seats. I really want a 4 seater lik the cobalt but the s2000 is so sexy. So im torn between the too. Please help!

SRT-4 is faster
The Versa has the lower insurance
Aftermarket support for the Smart Car is through the roof
Also 4 doors are lame... get a 3 door!

Which one is faster?
- They're probably pretty close to even if you're talking about racing in a straight line.

Which one would have cheaper insurance?
-The Cobalt SS would probably have cheaper insurance, but that's a guess.

Aftermarket Support
-The S2000 has great aftermarket support. I'm not sure about the Cobalt SS.

I would say get the S2000.

From somebody that owns an 07 S2000 and my next doir neighboor owns a 2010 cobalt ss turbo. The cobalt will walk the s2k. Without trying. It has no lift shif function and never loses boost. The s2000 on the other hand is a way higher quality built car from the ground up with rwd and a very capable chassis. Both have aftermarket support. This is not to be confused with the older superchharged cobalts, they arent very fast.

Which one is faster? As previously stated, the SRT4

Which one would have lower insurance? There is something called the internet, use it to get a quote on each type or car. There is also a new website called Google that may help.

Which one would have a better aftermarket? I don't think either car has been out long enough to have aftermarket support - try seeing if there is a forum dedicated to them or something.

Is the s2000 live able since it only has 2 seats? This question is right along the lines of "are turkey sandwiches good?" - make up your own mind.

But which will you enjoy driving more? Probably s2000. My own opinion though.

My guess (and only a guess) is the s2k will hold value better especially if you don't trash it and put a ton of miles on it.

You have to make up your own mind though. Everyone is going to have a different opinion, but if you want mine, I'd say go for the s. That's the last of my cars I'd give up, but I also don't have any kids to worry about. Come to think of it I couldn't take kids in any of them anyways lol.

I'm sure those cobalts are always breaking. Can't see them being to reliable . The s2000 is built like a rock. One of Hondas most crowning achievements. I would get an s2000 over cobalt. But my opinion could be biased since I own a s2k
