I agree! The S4 wheel always seemed a great look for the era. It was very ferrari-ish in design, perfect for what lotus was going after.....making the esprit a competitor to the 348 and 355. Not sure why but the S4 wheel looks great on the SE, great on the S4, but weird on the S4S. Almost like the wheel is not bold enough for the giant S4S hoop Spoiler.

they only made the Esprit with the JPS badging on the Early Guigaro cars....I think it was only 1 year and they were all serialized.

I JPS styled stephens or Thompson Esprit would look amazing....especially with wheels like these:

This JPS themed Esprit was built by Cam-Shaft as a tribute to Ayrton Senna.

Just to keep things going on this thread -- here's a couple from this month's Houston Coffee and Cars. This has got to be one of the largest events of its type in the country with probably 2000 cars showing up.

Someone caught my Esprit on a cool video:

Jacket is a C9 from Target that I ripped the C9 logo out.
Had my ESPRIT nameplate scanned at the local embroidery shop and auto-stitched on the jacket.

Atwell/Carbuff sent a 'lozenge' Lotus patch courtesy of a gentleman in Hawaii - not visible but on the right sleeve of the same jacket.

The emblem on the 88 Esprit is the 'lozenge' Lotus patch, not the yellow/green round emblem on the 89 onward (or earlier 86 I believe)

OK - I didn't get that one at first - I wasn't expecting people to check out the other photos on that 'miscellaneous' site -

The toenail photo was for my Doctor to review, not Lotus Talk folks. I'll take that down, but don't look at the other folders on that site - not all Lotus-related
