Not a comment on price. More a question about the change in ownership. Previously you would see Elise/Exige that had changed hands many times in a few years. Now I'm wondering if they have found their way to owners who are more long term. I see two types of sports car owners. Those who get a new and more interesting car every few years, (such as Porsche owners who continually move to the latest model) and those who just find a car and stick. I'm wondering if the Exige has become one of those cars that now attract long term ownership, and if so, is that unique to NA as we no longer get new models. I'm sure many more pre-2012 would change hands if Lotus opened up the market to new cars again.
I think this is exactly what has happened. I'm lucky to be an owner, but there are no other cars (that I could afford) that would bring as much enjoyment.
