Has anyone bothered to compare the two to see how much taller/shorter, wider/thinner or longer/shorter the cars are? They look like their wheelbases would be very close.

Have to admire her everytime I step out into the garage. :D

And were you aware that the Esprit has a Lotus-designed and built boosted V-8 engine while the Evora has a V-6 out of a Toyota Camry?


:huh:

I don't like the Evora, either, but they are different cars meant to appeal to different markets.

Oh wait. I bet you knew that. Trolling again?

True enough, the Esprit was indeed far from perfect. Thanks for pointing that out.

My very first Esprit was about the same vintage as your old one. My current '98 is truly a sweet ride. ;)

Weird what 14 years make. :rolleyes:

The Esprit is a great car, but frankly after owning one for 10 years... I was getting a little tired with the "reliability" and fragile nature of the V8 and specially the gearbox. Just traded mine in last week for a sweet Elise, and couldn't be happier. I guess to some of us the "Toyota" in these new cars is actually a good thing...

Black is the only color that car looks good in as it hides some of the roof lines and it looks fantastic!!!

I like 'em both! For a 30 year old design the Esprit still looks amazingly well so I'll hold on to what I've got for now.
