How does the Elise compare to an Alfa Romeo 4C?
You may want to ask in the General Discussion section. You're in New Member Introductions.

Hello everyone. Mike here. I'm 40 and currently reside in Southern California (Cerritos). I've owned an Ariel Atom 3 and Mitsubishi Evo X MR before the Ariel. My wife loves to track and I love all types of vehicles. We both rode motorcycles and enjoy the fast and unique looking cars. I hoping to get into the new Emira when it comes out. I've never owned a Lotus before but I've always seen them around. Especially on track days. Just joining the community to mostly listen, ask advice and one day hopefully help others who are new to brand like me. Thanks for having me. :)

No deer worries!

Hey everyone, my names Taylor. 24 and living in the Pacific Northwest. Long time lurker here. Been dreaming of owning a lotus since I was in auto shop class freshman year. After months of searching I’ve finally found this NA 2011 Evora that I am the new proud owner of. This may be my first lotus but it won’t be my last! Thank you for all the wonderful information here. Coming from the Miata world I feel right at home here. Hope everyone has an excellent day!

Turns out you need to have a number of posts before you can answer someone else's question in the classifieds forum I've been lurking. Neat.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Tony from Ontario, Canada.

I've been a longtime admirer of the Lotus brand and have been lurking in these forums for the last few years, with the notion of purchasing an Evora. However, with the upcoming release of the Emira as the proverbial replacement to the Evora, it's time to pull the trigger. Deposit is in and I'm ready to enjoy the infamous Lotus experience.

Hi, I'm from the UK originally but been living in the US in SC for about 10 years. My Dad got me into Lotus cars when young and he had many Elan +2's back in the day - I'm guessing probably about 5 or 6. I had an S1 Elise and an S2 many years ago in the UK and did about 50,000 miles in the S1 as a daily driver! I've now got the urge to get my hands on a late model S3 Turbo Esprit so joined the forum to keep a look out for one!
