Many times a newer version of a car will cause it's predecessor's value to go down. I'll admit it, I was hoping there wouldn't be an S3 Elise.
+1 How is Lotus going under (assuming that means permanently closing it's doors and not being re-sold) going to help values at all? Who's going to want to buy a used car that you can't get parts for or serviced? What's going to happen to values when owners start dumping their cars because Lotus has gone under?+1 !!! :facepalm
