Black Elise spotted on I-5

I was driving home from dinner with my wife and some friends on Saturday night around 9:45, when we spotted an Elise ! It was on the 5 freeway in LA/Orange County line area. It was an S-1 (original body style), and the driver had a surfboard sticking out of the top (leaning against the roll bar). It had british plates.

It was fantastic to see one on California roads in traffic ! I was amazed at how small and low it looked, compared with the rest of the vehicles out there. The group in our car all said that they loved the way the car looked. Now I'm considering ordering mine in black. Can't wait, hopefully less than a year to go now !

Covered in Brandy and Lard

I have NEVER seen an Elise on the roads. I look forward to when that changes. But just not as common as like a Miata.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.
