Lotus Elise for sale in Texas

Found this Lotus at Pruitt Ford in texas.
Did this belong to anyone? I’m super interested in it, but want to know more as I’d be flying out from California to check it out. Looks like it has a supercharger and a number of other mods.

Start with the listing on the site saying the exterior color is Aspen White, then shows an LRG car.

Not saying it's a bogus listing, looks like a real dealer site, but it speaks to the dealer not really knowing what he's working with, less so if you ask him about mods like a supercharger.

Sure bet he'll make no guarantees that with the supercharger, it will pass CA smog inspection if you buy and get it home.

If I were you I'd look closer to home. Lots of cars in California.

Ha I noticed this one, from their CL listing:

https://wichitafalls.craigslist.org/...661409951.html

It's interesting to see one of these at a dealer, out in the country.

Hey if you fly in to buy this, you can swing by and pick up my LSS wheels!

because racecar

Hah, that would work perfectly. I was actually in your area just 3 months ago to pick up an STI. The 4 LSS wheels would have fit perfectly in the trunk!

I e-mailed the dealer today to try to get more info, although I'm doubtful that they'll know what mods have been done to the car. Anyone local here kind enough to check out the car for me?

Agreed. It's unlikely that I'll fly out there unless I have someone inspect the car beforehand. The dealer seems to not know much of the car and this car is definitely heavily modded. (rear panel delete, aftermarket exhaust, intake, catch can(?), supercharger, rota wheels, front and side aero, gauges, etc..)
