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...

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.
Thanks Allan!

Kev111 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.

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