After three and a half years of fun and fulfilling ownership, my Elise is off on its next big adventure, with a new owner I met here on Lotus Talk. I am glad to have found someone who appreciates the car as much as I do and who will take good care of it. It will be missed. Meanwhile, yes, I went to the dark side... A shiny silver Porsche Boxster with red leather interior is being built just for me this summer. Should be done in a couple of weeks and coming home in September. But, perhaps there will be another Lotus in my future! Who knows, maybe Lotus will build a car in the spirit of the sixties Élan Roadsters. Now that would be something!
