...Umm...

"Driving enthusiasts who want to keep the weight down will often chose a pared down version of the 28,000 190bhp car, while poseurs might be more interested in a 120bhp 23,000 car with added gadgets."

Did BBC call the owners of current Elise poseurs?

Mr. Ali doesn't seem to be able to count if he thinks that he has a network of 50 dealers in the US.

Interesting that they can only sell 200 Elises per year in Japan.

Naw...since current Elise owners didn't have the option of choosing the 190hp one. They're just talking about new buyers. Of course, with that price difference, this statement is a bit unfair.
