A few more options that might see votes:

- Nothing.
- C6 Vette
- Mazda/Mazdaspeed Miata MX-5
- Boxster S

These are cars people have mentioned as alternates. There are plenty more.

None of the above.

How about a Hayabusa-powered 7 clone? Or an Ariel Atom? Or save up for a Noble?

Nothing. Maybe hope for a new RX-7. Until I found out about the Elise, I thought the car I wanted wasn't made. At least not for a price I could reasonably afford. If I won the lottery, a Gallardo would look tasty.

Nothing,

Or maybe buy an old European Chasis and find a company that will provide kit parts :)

By popular demand, I added a few options to the poll (Miata, Corvette, Caterham).
