I think the price of e Elise will be about what it is now. A nice, low mileage example (20,000 miles or so) around $25,000 - $28,000. Very low mileage cars might hold a little over $30,000. I doubt there will be any for sale under $21,000 even with 50,000 miles. Lotus is struggling, but their cars will always have a place in history. We just have to hope the company can tough it out and make a new car that people want to buy. I wish they would bring back a spiritual example of the Elan. Two seats, two door roadster costing less than $40,000, weighing less than 2400 pounds with 0-60 times in the low five second range and Elise - like handling. Mid - engined would be neat too. No BS, no extra crap, just a pure sports car.
