Re: Could caterham take over the Elise/Exige chassis

I think it's pure speculation and a bit of good publicity for Lotus, but who in their right minds is going to take on a product which has less than 10 years to live in most countries?

Re: Lotus teaser/launch update link

Isn't the cheapest 911 now £100k? Bit strong for a base Lotus or top end for that matter. Basic 911 without extras is £84k. Remember going in to Murrays and seeing a Lotus (430gt?) with a £121k price tag on it. Kinda splitting hairs, nobody ever bought a 911 without any options on it. But even at £...

Re: Lotus teaser/launch update link

according to Evo prices start at 911 money, bye bye Elise market and traditional ownership enthusiast base . Time for Mazda to do a 250 bhp MX5. Isn't the cheapest 911 now £100k?

I know more about the cars now, but it looks like (touch wood) I've got a good on...

Re: It’s time...

Agree the market has gone loopy.. Was looking at possibly getting a 997 Cabriolet now the Boxster Spyder has sold and this week sub 50k mileage cars are flying out of the showrooms and suddenly newly listed cars have had an extra £2 to 5k onto their sticker price. Can't blame the dealers as I would...

Re: It’s time...

Plus ... Autotrader is not the first place I’d go to find an Elise (or anything else a bit special). PistonHeads Classifieds is where it’s at [emoji851] There’s 59 Elises on there right now. Mostly at pretty strong prices. Including some comedy S1’s [emoji1787] And there's a distinct lack of superc...
