Hello from a (hopefully) future owner

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!


One day (hopefully soon...) I hope to get my hands on an Esprit. I'm hoping to pick up an S2.


I guess how I became interested in Lotus is a little of a backwards story.....I own a DeLorean, which I love, and now would like to try an Esprit, seeing as they're sorta the same, but still very different. I guess Roger Moore didn't help either. Then toss in the interesting history of Lotus and Colin Chapman, and well, I just have to give the car a try. ( And I hope being a DeLorean owner won't earn me too many demerits off the bat....)


I hope all of you won't mind my inevitably dumb questions as I try to learn something about these cars and become an educated buyer.


Anyways, I'm very glad to be here!

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

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!


I have been to a few car and coffees, but only the small ones so far. Haven't made it out to the big ones just yet. I'm very glad to hear that there are some local owners in here too!
