well i realize that but it's a tough choice. Both are awesome cars and are really cool in their own respect. I keep going back and forth and cannot come to a decision so hearing how other car enthusiats would make their decision helps.MikeAR303 said:I would opt for the Elise, but you should choose the car that suits you best, not the car that other people would choose.
haha you can tell this decision is killing me. I think the problem is that i really want both AH it's a good problem to have at leasttidalwdave said:<-------------------------------------------------------------
Oh wait, that was my reply on S2Ki. My avatar is different here.
I've always liked the Cobras, but I like the Elise better for my everyday needs. If I had the money to have the Cobra and the Elise, I'd do it, but one over the other, the Elise is more practical for me.
It's only a good problem to want both, if you can afford both. Otherwise, it's not a good problem. I'm trying to think of ways to keep my S2K and get the Elise. In the end, I'm going to have to sell the S2K though.offroadr35 said:haha you can tell this decision is killing me.

I agree. I was going to post that part, but forgot.offroadr35 said:
what i'm thinkng is that i could buy the cobra now and drive it for about 8 months until my Elise comes. By that time i should be pretty familiar with the Daytona and will know if i'd rather have it or the Elise. Then i figure i could sell it and probably not lose much money, if any.
i would like to build my own too but because of space and time restraints that's not possible right now. I'll probably build a roadster at some point. This car is just awesome because it is probably the sweetest Type 65 out there.sonza68 said:I have been in love with the FFR Type 65 Coupe for some time now. Although personally, I would rather buy the kit and build it myself than buy one already assembled. If it came down to choosing between the Elise or Daytona Coupe, I'm not sure what I'd do.
Edit: While it's not a real Cobra, it isn't a Mustang either. It uses a Mustang drivetrain, a few suspension parts and some misc bits, but that's about it.
that is exactly my concern and the thing i really don't know about the FFR. I asked on clubcobra and there are guys that put 8-10k miles a year on their roadsters so apparently they aren't THAT unbearable. It is definitely the main issue for me though. I don't want a car that is unbearable to cruise around in.rtking said:The problem, of course, is whether you would want to enjoy driving your car regularly. With the original 427 Cobra, I already know it would be a garage queen if I bought it.
With the FFR Daytona Coupe, I guess you wouldn't feel as bad putting miles on it, but would it really be comfortable for any kind of cruising? I would think that it would be more of a special-purpose vehicle.
I personally would opt for the Elise. I consider it a "practical exotic" that I can use for cruising up the Pacific Coast Highway on pleasant days, but still use for track events and Solo II events. It would be a car I would use without hesitation on nice days.
