Hi there :D Just figured I would drop in and make an account after lurking for about a year now attempting to learn more about these beautiful vehicles.

Might as well give a little back story about myself since this is my first post :)

My name is John and I live on good ole' Cape Cod and have been fascinated with everything Lotus since I was about 13 (Now 18). My first dream car being the elise, ever since I saw it in a racing game my father had given me. Just something about it caught my attention and from that point forward I have never lost interest.

I've only ever seen a few Lotus cars in person (1 gray Exige who lives in the town next to me and a Lotus Esprite Turbo in NY) which makes me sad because these cars are pure works of art and I don't think many people gives them much thought :(

Anyway I have been given an opportunity that may teenagers do not have and for that I am grateful. On my 21st birthday my father and I will be splitting the bill on a new (or lightly used) Lotus Evora to be shared between me and him. We will both equally pay any costs for the car. We plan on keeping this car for a very long time and keeping it very well maintained. This is something I have been looking forward too since I was 16 and its still 3 years away but he wants to wait until I am 21 which I do think is fair. I just can't wait I'm getting too excited thinking about it now haha :D

Anyway everyone have a good day and I hope to become a part of this community in the coming years :)

Welcome! Your dad sounds pretty cool. Why not buy 2 Elises for the same money? That way you each have one and can ride together!
I'm not sure if he would fit lol I'm 5'10'' but he is 6'3''. I wouldn't mind one though but we both kind of agreed on an Evora. Hey things may change though :p

There are threads discussing this. Many people tall people are happy. I am. Look into "TallRails" if he has a long torso. Perhaps you don't being in a small car. I am excited for you!
