Good evening, my name is Mike and I live in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I was just introduced to the Emira by a coworker (probably on this board) the last 2 days. I'm just a lurker for now and all I can say is this car has my attention. Unlike the C8 Corvette, when I saw the Emira, I was drawn to it. I've had 2 previous Corvettes, Toyota MR2, and an Integra Type R. I won't make many posts but will definitely be doing a lot of reading. I look forward to maybe becoming an owner one day if it's meant to be.
Welcome to LT Mike!

John here from just outside of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I put a deposit down on an Emira yesterday -- slightly tricky, as the nearest Lotus dealer is in Melbourne. That means flying over to get the car, then putting it on the boat to get it back. But I'm sure it'll be worth it.

Speaking of worth, the first edition is roughly $200,000 here (Australian dollars)... thanks largely to our government's luxury car tax. So definitely approaching supercar pricing.

Hello fellow lotus lovers! My name is Sid and I live in Longview, Texas. I just placed a deposit on an Emira first edition yesterday. I am a porsche guy who stumbled across the Emira just researching mid engine cars in general. I’ve known about the lotus brand since round about 95 or so when I was interested in the Elise I think it was.

My sports car history is corvettes until I discovered the mid engine platform in a Porsche. Have had two of those that I used on the race track extensively. Sold my last one a few weeks ago and I am now without a car to fuel my passion. I am excited about the Emira and looking forward to taking delivery as soon as possible.

Welcome to LT Side. Might have wanted to hang on to that last P car since Emira deliveries will be a year if you just deposited.

Yes I think you might be correct as far as selling it a bit too soon. My sales guy says to expect the car by summer of next year, but I do think that’s optimistic judging by the research I’ve been doing.

Hi, I live in Northern New Jersey and drive a lightly modified 2001 Miata for fun. I would love to trade up to an Elise but prices are recently through the roof. So I'll be waiting for the used car hysteria to pass and using the time to learn more about Lotus including through this community.
