I was scrolling down and stopped. Wow, I do like the new Espirt, and then I saw the Elan plate.

The more pictures I see the more I like. I think my expectations were pretty high and I wanted to see something totally outrageous, but these are very classy and expensive looking, almost scary to imagine $$. Has anyone seen the new Lambo, a little too extreme, but 2200 lbs V10, maybe Lotus needs to tke notes?

CO Elise, mods-stage 2

I need to see a flow-chart to determine what distinguishes each model from the next.

Can someone post a flat side view of the esprit? How much of a wedge is it. Does anyone have dimensions, how low? P.S. the new 4 door has a nice little kick at the tail.

Well, I've got to say, I'm pretty happy with all the horse power figures of the Lotus cars. They are all competitive with their class. I really like the Elan but I have a feeling the Elise will be in my comfortable price range.

The Elan looks pretty slick.

The rest I have to sleep on.

Yep... what we need are some high quality press pics (from every angle) to make a decision.

As for me, if I like the 2012 Esprit, it's going to be my next car. And based on what I see in THIS pic, I like...
