1991 Lotus Elan
Imagine being a Lotus salesperson in the late ’80s and early ’90s. The Hethel factory has just sent a wonderful new roadster, with great handling despite the front-drive layout, and turbocharged power. Good times, right? Nope, because the Mazda dealership down the street has a new roadster too, though theirs is clearly inspired by the OLD Elan.
Shame, really, because while we do love the Miata, different is good. These were actually very good cars. It has a bit of wear, especially on the driver’s seat, but nothing that can’t be fixed.
It’s on eBay in Salt Lake City with reserve not yet met.
