Great points Dylan. I'm a Lotus nut. I have owned 4 over the years. However, they have all been 15 years or older when I got them. In other words fully depreciated. They are awesome value. It is just way more acceptable to me to fettle away on the cars and fix this and that when they are 15 - 47 years old than when they are 0-5 years old. This IMO is where Lotus needs to improve. It's a bit shocking the little annoying things that went wrong with the Elise and Evora out of the gate. This is what makes them less appealing to the mainstream and revert to a true enthusiast's car.
