Most fun car I've owned

by Peter from Wichita KS on Tue Oct 25 2011

This is the best fun for the money / value for money / performance for the money car you could ever own. I love it. It is very difficult not to grin constantly while you're in it and every time you stop at traffic lights someone takes a photograph or yells "nice car, what is it ?"

Purest driving experience ever

by Inlovewithlotus from Macon, GA on Wed May 16 2018

Stunning looks. Razor sharp steering. Exhaust sound that is intoxicating. Clean crisp shifts. Entry and exiting the car is a challenge. It is point A to point A car. I purchased this purely for the track. Turn in and out is beautiful with so little weight. Mid engine handling. Rear view visibility is poor. BE extra careful changing lanes on HWY. I keep smiling for hours after a drive. Pure driving experience. Two thumbs up !!

Fantastic British Sports Car

by narcospeed from Huntsville, AL on Sat Sep 29 2018

This car is exactly what I had imagined it to be. I had wanted one since high school, and I was finally able to purchase one myself. The car was exactly as expected--tight corners, stiff yet compliant suspension, small trunk space, seats that hold you firm to the road, little squeaks and rattles from even the smallest of cracks in the road, the wind blowing through the cabin with the top down, the whine of the supercharger. Fantastic car, and I had no issues with it during my ownership (other than a leaky valve stem). Toyota-powered but Lotus performance and huge smiles.
