Well I know a few people actually like purple, krypton, and black. Lots of people want CO. But the choice of bronze over white is baffling. I am not sure if anybody likes the bronze.

Some people like that black hides all the plastic bits. I am leaning towards black myself. Looks mean.

Could be worse - go look at the BMW website. Your choices are silver, gray, dark gray, wierd olive green, poop brown, etc. But at least they have white!

I still wonder that if you request it you can get it. Worked for Laser Blue people...

mact, white could be available at a later date...Nick Adams with Lotus told me that there was a good chance that the color offerings would change throughout the Elise's life cycle

:D :D :D :D Patricko....the stormtrooper looks abit dated...personally, i like white and most sportscar co's sell alot of white and people that like to go to track seem to like white alot also.

kinda pathetic , but I must spend an hr a night researching this car, something i wont see for 9 months.

You know being that far out you may have a pretty good chance of gettting white. People petitioned for Laser Blue and they made it available. Maybe could do the same with white. I am sure when nobody orders Aztec Bronze they will scrap it for white. The stormtrooper pic makes me want white even more! I think it needs black wheels however...

I'm hoping they offer it by the time I'm called to choose a color. My old Lotus was white, as was my old Prelude. I'm hoping to keep the white sports car tradition. I've always like white sports cars ever since the Esprit that went underwater in 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. It seems a crime to have a Lotus and NOT offer it in white after that film.

I think they are not offering white based on experience with the rest of the world.

They offered white on the S1 and only sold a handful of them. I have only ever heard of 2 white ones and have seen neither and according to reports they actually made only about 20 out of the more than 10,000 S1 Elises.

IMHO I think white would look really nice. There is a photo on this site of a Type 23 with green racing stripes, looks really sharp.

Hey, black looks awesome BECAUSE the trim pieces are also black.
