I'd have to say NO, but the Evora is priced well. Beautiful cars. I'd love to have the s260 in white. 🇬🇧

My thoughts exactly. Maybe that's why they have 10 of them?

All of the Exiges are recently acquired, and still being put on their website. They usually sell out during spring. Last year they had quite a few too. Prices are generally firm. Newport Coast Auto does put a lot of time and money to make sure that every car is up to snuff on service and things that need to be done.

Reminiscent of walking into Criswell Lotus when the 05's were new...seeing a couple of Elise's in the showroom, and 20 or more lined up on the lot.

A few could sell within 10% of the asking price, especially the sought after colors like IG, CR and PB. This dealership did their homework by finding largely unmolested, low mileage examples.

I live in the area and can confirm some of these cars have been sitting for a while and by a while, I mean a year+. For being in arguably the largest sport's car market in the world (i.e., So Cal), I'd say they are slightly out of touch on what the market will bare. Oh, and as far as seasonal movement, our Spring is pretty much 320 out of 365 days a year. It's 82 degrees today in Irvine!

Their prices are optimistic to put it lightly.

If you're in the market for the Persian Blue - 2008 Exige S240 you would be best served searching this forum for history on it. There have been many discussions regarding this car trading hands 3 times since last July(ish) in the high 50s each time. 70k is nice profit margin for Newport!

BTW: I do not mean to imply there is anything wrong with the car. I was actually considering buying it and went in a different direction instead.

I was there yesterday test driving the '10 Evora.

What a wonderful sight it was to see all those Exiges in one place, including rare special editions.

Salesman told me the owner loves Exiges. They also have the last (#50) of the '06 Elise sports.

There's also a place down the street filled with classic Minis, and another with early 911s. Plus European Collectibles is a mile away.

They generally ask above top dollar - i cant imagine any educated buyer walks in and pays full price. Thats definitely why they have so many.
When I was looking, they were asking 8-10k+ what anyone on the forums were. Not sure about the work they put into their cars so i cant speak to that, but for any potential buyer I have spoken to them and they feel due to their location (being a wealthier area) they were not budging from their asking price. This was at a time they only had one or two. Now that they have so many, maybe they will be more lenient.
Just looked: If someone wants to give me 63k for my 8k mile exige s, id sell lol what a joke.

I remember a year ago they picked up this $42k Evora in PA, gave it a wash and maintenance update and sold it for $57k. i assume their target isn't Lotustalk people since we are all aware of current market price of these cars. Advertising it on LT probably won't help moving their inventory.

Even back when I was looking in the good ol days they were always on the high end. Definitely have some nice inventory... as a business it makes sense to take the De Beers approach to a niche market.

Newport Coast Auto now has 12 or 13 Exiges for sale + plenty of Elise/Evoras.

Head over and check them out.... even if you aren't buying a car... it's like walking into a toy store as a kid!
