Sorry to hear that times are so tough. (Can't think of any reason to sell my Elise.)
If I were, though, I usually put an ad in Ebay with reserve set. No-one will come close on the bidding, but usually a couple good leads come to you and you can negotiate off-line. I think CARS.COM has Lotus.
If you can wait, LOG is a good place to sell a Lotus. (Although Elise may be too "common" there.)
