Grey Elise at Whole Foods in Raleigh just a little while ago (about 5:50). Hadn't seen this one around before!

Orange Elise on Mallard Creek Rd at Mallard Creek Church Rd in Charlotte last Friday (12/15) at about 5:40. Hadn't seen this one around before! Not a great pic, but best I could do given the circumstances.

First Lotus sighting of the year for me went to a blue Elise in an office park at the corner of Ardrey Kell and Rea in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte on 2/9/18 at 11:45. Looked to be pretty well-driven. Also a Vantage and a couple of Quattroportes in the same lot.

Was driving home from work earlier tonight when I caught a glimpse of an orange Elise (possible Exige) heading in the other direction on Cary Pkwy near the YMCA at around 9:45 pm.

Today in Cary around 4p, supercharged red Elise in the La Farm parking lot on Cary Pkwy. First time seeing this one around, looked awesome in person! Anyone on here?

Anyone in Raleigh?

I've been in Raleigh for a year and half, and I've only seen a couple Evoras.

I could really use some help being pointed to some decent roads in the area, though I'm not too hopeful via what I'm seeing on roadcurvature.com.

There aren't a ton of great roads around Raleigh for driving. Holly Springs Rd between Cary Pkwy and Ten Ten Rd is somewhat fun (I drive along part of it on en route to work) but only if you don't get stuck behind anyone. NC 42 between Fuquay-Varina and Sanford is about the same, although it's been ages since I drove that route.

First Lotus sighting of the year for me went to a white Evora S IPS at Lowes Foods at the corner of High House and Cary Pkwy in Cary on Sunday 3/17 around 5p. Hadn't seen or heard of this one before so it was a nice surprise

Yesterday (3/30) in Charlotte, black Esprit parked outside of the Motori Italiani car show at 131 Main in Ballantyne until around 2pm.

Today (3/31) outside of Greensboro, white Evora charging onto I-85 S from the US 421 ramp at around 3pm.

Several Lotus sightings to report from the same night! On Wednesday (4/24) in Charlotte, saw a yellow Elise turning at Tryon and Bland in South End around 8:30pm. Unfortunately I didn't see it in time to grab a pic. About 45 mins later I caught sight of another Elise, this one a dark murky blue color, on Morehead at College just outside of Uptown. Then, at around 9:45pm, a black Evora S IPS parked on Davidson St in NoDa near the Y. Not sure if there was some sort of Lotus meet that night or what, but it was pretty weird seeing three different Lotuses running around.

Yet another Lotus to mention. Glad to see so many out and about! Blue Elise with a huge wing parked in a very dark small lot next to Wilson's Outdoor Equipment very late (about midnight) on Saturday 5/11 in downtown Raleigh. I was walking back to my car and almost didn't even see it due to how little light there was. Unfortunately my phone doesn't take great pics at night, but it's at least worth a post.
