The latest pretender to challenge the Tesla Model S is this underwhelming Honda S2000.

Honda's sporty roadster is no match for the Tesla.  Not on paper, nor at the strip.

The S2000 is unique in that it redlines at over 8,000 rpm.  However, its max horsepower rating is right at redline, meaning you've got to really rev it to get access to the power.

On the other hand, the Model S produces max HP almost immediately.

Here are some of the vital specs:

Honda S2000

  • 2.0-liter
  • 237 hp
  • 162 pound-feet of torque
  • Curb weight: 2,864 pounds
