@MTLDean - As soon as you mentioned that the hardtop wasn't included for an $84,000 car I had an allergic reaction. Have you checked out Weissach lately. I realize they're in Vancouver but several...

Current volume is 1200-1800 per car per year?? That's a funny looking number. Here are some numbers I dredged up from OICA:

Just checked out Scotti's website. So you're looking at a 2011 Elise. I'd choose white only if it had the black pack, otherwise chrome orange.

That dealer could stand to work on his website. ...

Personally I would calibrate to Canadian prices (as a proxy). Your prospective 2010 with mileage is roughly $50,000 or about 335000 Rand. 300000 is likely lowballing it.

Good luck

I wouldn't fret too much just yet.

My understanding is that Lotus is still planning to launch 1 car per year starting in 2012. The V-6 Exige (in new design language) to be launched as MY2012 and...

@Kev77 - Looks pretty good. There's probably some truth to it even if it is only a photoshop. Same thing happened with the Bespoke version. BTW did Lotus ever sell any of the Bespoke editions?

@chili07 - It's a real beauty. I find the chili red quite striking - can't figure out why Lotus stopped them this color.

Happy travels in your new ride! It should prove quite entertaining.

Big changes take some to execute. Given the recent focus on improving the Evora and Elise, he looks like he's on the right track now (maybe less so 6 months ago).

It depends on a bunch of considerations. For me, the build date is a key one. If the Evora was built prior to May 2010 (MY2010), then I would be looking in the 50s -- low 50s for lightly optioned /...

Sharp looking ride. The color combo works -- it's probably a good thing that you didn't end up putting the yellow stripes on it. Hard to believe you haven't sold it yet.

Great shots BTW .....
