6 Cars on death row!



http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/auto...-on-death-row/

interesting article. Saddening to see the S2K go (not a huge fan of it tbh), the rest can die, especially that terrible looking Lexus.

I think the S2000 and the Viper would be missed.

not fond of any of those vehicles... so couldn't care less, and frankly, the world will be a better place as the ratio of bmws per other makes slowly rises

The Viper was my first favorite sports car back when it came out... though I can't say it'll be missed, I've sort of lost interest in it.

The S2000 is a shame, I like those...

I've been debating picking up a low miles, original Integra Type-R to hold on to, but maybe the S2000 might be another choice.

Nah, I wouldn't want a bmw when they become as popular as civics n toyotas . . . . Although they are already becoming pretty common these days.

Would be collector's car if S2000 and Viper die.

When I was looking for a Roadster, S2000 was a choice, ended up buying
a Z3 3.0 I

Dont debate.. Just Do It > S2000, I bet you will enjoy the car.

The Type R feels better to push the car to the limits then the S2K. Truly does. The S2K feels way louder and honestly, pushy..the limits aren't as easy to detect like the Type R. I thought the Type R was fabulous, and all said and done, I'd almost take one over an S2K. Would ultimately depend on the S2K and how it was maintained.

S2000 is the only one that doesnt deserve to be on that list, a really good piece of engineering.

Call me old school but the Cadillac XLR is a great alternative to the Corvette.
