Not overly thrilled. Looks like they couldn't make up thier mind if they wanted a porch, or an Eclispe.

The looks are slowly growing on me. But I'd love to drive one. I hear they're a blast.

I fell in love with the Elise about 3 months ago and have decided that it's my next vehicle - circa 18 months...

I dunno about those things, I heard they are a kick in the ass to drive but it seriously looks like it takes its looks from a bulldog/insect. Id love to try one out tho.

I've driven one. Closest thing to a four-wheeled motorcyle that you can drive legally on an American street.

Almost zero creature comforts, but wow what a blast to drive.

Doesn't make any sense as a commuter, but manoman how I lust for one.

Interesting idea but doesn't even inspire mild lust. I read an article by a guy who drove one from Texas to Louisiana to I believe Georgia. He was with a friend.

My primary memory of that article was repeated complaints about range and creature comfort.

Apparently, they were filling the thing every couple of hours and it was seriously uncomfortable for extended driving.

It's a 3'rd car for weekends close to home. 15 minute rides.

As for the styling, IMHO it's got Japanese styling to go with the Toyota engine.

But that weight, that weight! Lotus stuck to a plan. Gotta admire the purity of the design.

They certainly demonstrated there's more than one way to make a performance car.

Im not so impressed. Looks like a poodle would if you stepped on its tail.

The concept's very neat -- but I wouldn't want to own one. Make a great club race car, though.

Saw one in yellow a few weeks ago -- same yellow that surrounds the Lotus logo on the center cap of the wheels. Very nice, rich color. Love the GTO yellow jacket, but this particular shade was really cool. More red in it.

Hello

It's a fecken race car, who the hell buy's that thing for the AC, sterio or road trips across the country. You buy that thing to tear up 200K + super cars on road courses and because it looks cooler than a Mini Cooper.
