If Artioli's grand daughter wasn't named Elisa, what we know as the Elise would've been the ideal resurrection of the Europa name (rather than the variation that wound up with that name in the...

Eagle was used by AMC. Since that company doesn't exist anymore, perhaps available.

GM/Buick may take issue with Electra

I prefer 'End,' as in the last car to use the E naming convention.

Then Elite, Elan, Europa, Eclat, Esprit, Elise, Exige, Evora, now this.

Make sure you review all service history, and if it's been awhile since the belts (esp timing) were done you'll want those changed. Soon.

Aside from Elise's being unavailable new with the newest several years old now, don't think folks would be cross shopping these two cars. The Evora 400 and Porsche maybe, certainly not the Elise.

If the OP bought the house when this thread started, he'd have more than 33% of a 30 year mortgage paid off by now. Probably would've been rid of the Elise by now, too!
