    Thinking about ordering one one of these fuckers. Earliest delivery is winter 2023. they’re only 77k which makes them cheaper than the new m4 or corvette and they have a hydraulic steering and are manual shifting.

    The 6 cylinder is a supercharged 3.5 l Toyota engine making 400 hp. That's pretty cool ! At 77k, I think you get the turbo 2.0 l AMG 4 cyl. which is a big "no" in my book. The 6 cyl is the only way to get a real manual tranny.

    Is it though? This is going to be lotus’s last ICE vehicle. I’m thinking it will be a good investment….

    I always invest heavily in highly depreciable assets.

    What’s your local Lotus dealer situation like?

    Alex_V Dump the diesel

    Probably a neat car. Is it 70+K before taxes, dealer fees, etc? Could be more of a 100K car once its all done.

    Not an investment in my book, but we live once - do whatever makes you happy

    I’d want to kick tires at both and see how after-sale service would be and get a general vibe from the dealership. If it’s just another marque tacked on to a massive luxury dealer, I have a feeling the experience might be a bit lacking.

    Sincerely,

    A Poor

    “Harry’s Garage”, on YT, has a couple videos on the car. He does a launch video at the factory, going over the car’s development. Then, he does a longer-term review video, where he lives with one for a couple weeks. <There’s really good info in this one. Of course, he has one on order.

    I’ll take my touring model with a V6, seneca blue exterior, and red leather interior.

    Cortez, do you own a home?

    are you insinuating that traditional home ownership is a path to long term monetary investment? That’s a fucking lie that’s been perpetuated for way too long. And you’re earning your firms name with that suggestion. Yes the emira might be a bad investment. But not like a fucking house to LIVE in instead of making money on. And costs a lot less.

    no I don’t own a home. But I could easily buy one right now if I wanted to. Which I don’t. Only motion & bird would suggest buying a home in this market. I’m going to be scooping up investment properties in the next 2 years. my household income is now above 200k. I’ll be just fine.
