Hello fellow Lotus-lovers.. just thought I'd introduce myself.. I fell in love with Lotus back in 1995 when they announced the s1 Elise because of its mini supercar looks and a badge that had appeared in James Bond, Pretty Woman and yes, Basic Instinct (snigger :D).. I got very excited as I was a teenager then and could actually imagine myself owing one of these in the not too distant future given the £20k price tag..  I ended up buying a couple of s2 Elises in the early 2000s..  I now have an Exige 390 FE due to be delivered any day.. well excited :D...  I have also put down a deposit on an Emira to possibly replace the Exige in 2 years once the finance deal is up, although I am not entirely certain yet that I will want to do this.. I'll have to test drive it first..  it looks sensational, and the interior looks like something out of Star Trek, but if the Exige is way more fun to drive then I'll probably stick with that.  I think Lotus have done the right thing moving into mini supercar territory, getting back to the Esprit days, although I do understand peoples' misgivings about the increased weight.. but maybe their USP has to change in order for them to survive and take on the giants.  In any case, it's a very exciting time for Lotus fans right now!

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
