What's up with the Honda S2000?

I've been checking out the reviews for convertible sports cars. The S2000, 350z, z4, Miata, Corvette, Boxter, and so forth. It seems to me that the S2000 is the best choice when you consider handling, mpg, build quality, and performance for the buck. But Honda only sold around 5500 units in 2006 and I rarely see any on the road. How come the S2000 isn't outselling it's competitor's??

I just got an S2000, awsome, you'll love it at first sight and when you take it for a ride, you'll absolutely be thrilled. This performs to its promise, you will not be dissapointed. Get black color with red seats; that is hot.

Love the haters, by the way.The Honda S2000 does not sell more because it is an Icon for the company.What that means, in a nutshell, is that Honda essentially hand builds these cars, and then sells them for an extremely low profit. These cars are better than the Z4 convertibles, but sell for a lot less. They are more than the Miata or the Solstice, but they are miles better than either one.Honda simply does not have the capacity to sell more than that. If you ever notice, Honda never advertises the S2000. You may see one in a Honda add as part of the group, but it is never advertised by itself.In order to sell more, Honda would have to automate more of the assembly line, which would reduce some of the quality features of the car. If they could automate and maintain quality, they would have to consistently sell 100 times more than they do, or they would have to stop production.The bottom line is that to sell volumes of two seat convertibles, you have to make them very cheap and low powered, like the Miata, or make them very expensive to make up for sales fluctuations, like the Z4.
