Amazing how many errors you can get in one article.
1. The CR was produced in 2008 and 2009.
2. That "squat little black hardtop" is the OEM top
3."With the hardtop removed the CR weighs 100 pounds less than a stock S2000," No, it weighs 88 lbs less than a stock S2k. (The hardtop weighs 44 lbs, the soft top and mechanicals also weighs 44 lbs)
4. "the racecar-firm brakes are stiff and cantankerous and seemingly uninterested in doing their job. The clutch has long throws, at odds with the placement of the other two pedals—alas, that doesn't change with warmer temperatures." Not in my car. Not sure where they got the car they were driving.
5."Neither do the seats—suede, with a weird yellow cloth like what they use on Jansport backpacks". The seats are Alcantara which is NOT suede and that "weird yellow cloth"? Isn't cloth, it's a plastic, just like the soft top in other S2ks.

Other than that, it's an okay article.

I also disagree with the comments regarding the brakes and clutch/shifter. The rest was ok.
