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.

That Esprit is STILL a fantastic looking machine muchachos!

Here you are, all dimensions are in inches and rounded to the nearest tenth:

2004 Esprit
wheelbase - 95.3
length - 172
width - 74.1
height - 45.3
ground clearance - 4.1

Evora
wheelbase - 101.4
length - 170.9
width - 72.8
height - 48.1
ground clearance - 4.7
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?

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!!!
