New member here in Southern CA. I’ve owned quite a few sports cars over the years but it’s been 4 years of practical commuter cars since selling my last M3. Finances are looking up so now I’ve got some $ to burn and the wife insists I finally get a new toy. My head says 997 Carrera S (or possibly Cayman S and save some $ for track days), but my heart says Lotus Elise. The problem is, while I’ve driven plenty of Porsche’s, I’ve never even ridden in an Elise. I’d really like to drive one, preferably in anger, to help focus my decision. I wouldn’t feel right test driving a private owner’s car just to wind up passing on it, I know these things aren’t exactly plentiful. So I’m open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance and I look forward to researching my near future purchase here.
