Well, I just looked through all of the Elise wrecks, and I started in on the Porsche wrecks. Wow, that really makes the porsche less desirable. In the crashes of the Elise, usually the outside was totally messed up, but the cabin was still intact. The Porsches had lots of smaller cabins after the wrecks. I would imagine I'd have a better chance of walking away from a wreck in an Elise than a porsche. I may not want to look at other cars' wrecks. It will just make me fear for my life more.
I think it's good to see all the wrecks - especially of $200K+ cars - presumably the drivers were being SOMEWHAT careful with their high priced exotics. And they wrecked on streets - not in track accidents mind you.
It's going to be a very dangerous world out there in a car that's hard to see, goes fast, handles unbelievably and could be an accident waiting for someone else to make happen. A friend totalled his Ferrari because the pickup on his left could not see him and they said they looked - and he was a very experienced driver and knew the hazards of being next to any vehicle.
The wrecks help remind me that I'll need to ratchet up all my driving skills A LOT when I'm in the Elise. Seeing the pictures is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
A roughly similar situation is with my concealed carry permit for a deadly weapon - classes from an attorney are almost exclusively about the horrible things that can happen if you shoot your gun at someone (hit em or not) and you are then defined as a defendant because you WILL be in court. Your actions and consequences are potentially extreme and you need a different mind set to carry a gun - or drive an Elise, or Ferrari, etc. for that matter.
I know I'll be a more defensive driver after seeing what other, probably more skilled and experienced drivers, have gone through.
Someone in another post said that the Elise will have to be driven like a motorcycle - I agree 100%.
