    true dat
     
  2. How old are some of you people? 12? Get real, every damn new ferrari that comes out barely breaks 200mph before it breaks down! Who wants to spend half a million dollars on a car that breaks down on what it's supposed to do. Ferrari's are very nice looking cars but for their performance and reliability they just blow! This car rocks, and to sit there and say, "Ferrari is better" is basically telling me your either 12 or you have the intellect of a 12 year old! Morons! some of you are just f ucking morons!<!-- Signature -->

    tru say, only an idiot wud compare this car to a ferrari, wat da fuk r sum of u ppl on?!

    A Lotus Esprit shud b looked at for idividuality, it still has the classic pointyish nose, which nowerdays, nobody likes, it's from the 80's i think, i luv these cars, and it is a classic!

    If u was given a Esprit, wud u mind?!

    No! U wud never mind!

    I not saying that Ferrari is better, but don't british -- *ahem* -- most supercars tend to break down easily? Ferrari is not the worst in this aspect.

    Reliability:
    1) Japanese
    2) Germans
    3) Italians, British, Americans, French...
    4) Third world countries (Yugo cars)

    The Lotus Esprit is not renowned for good relaibility or better than Ferrari, at least, not that I know of. You want reliability? Get a Porsche.

    So you think that TVR's Break down easily? At least they can get the top speed out of their cars without blowing the engine. I'm serious man, all the new Super Ferraris F40 F50 new FX or F60 they barely hit 200 and the f50 blew before it got 200mph! The TVR hit what 230 or over? If it the engine blew at least it got some numbers out of it! I'm not saying Itallian cars have bad quality, but I honestly would take a Lotus over a ferrari anyday! What I love about the Esprit, is the design is still old but still so damn good looking! It should never change! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    While I am a Lotus fan I must state that this V8 engine is very unreliable - similar in reliability to a ferarri engine. and Lotus stands for Lots Of Trouble Ususlly Serious.

    From what I've heard this is a pretty reliable car, ok nothing like as reliable as a Japanese car but still reliable.
    Lotus have had so long working on this car over the years that a lot of the problems have been sorted out.

    Some people are living in the past when they say British cars brake down all the time.............move on<!-- Signature -->

    Finally some people to stop this Ferrari-madness. What could ever make you choose any Ferrari over this piece of art ? Sure, most Ferraris have awesome looks and performance (and price...), but does this even come close to the style and charisma of a Lotus ? The feeling of driving an excellent car that the average person never even heard of compared to a bunch of idiots brabbling "Wow - a Ferrari...".
    Well, however, i'm glad not to be the only one with a personal taste far off the mainstream.



    By the way "speeddemon7": i once had a porsche and, well, nice car but if you want reliability - don't get it...

    Any one that would say that Ferrari's or Lotus's are terrible cars should stay with thier little four banger engine cars they drive. Why are you saying that high performance cars need the reliability of a Japanese car? Anyone that cannot maintain a vehical like a Ferrari or Lotus shouldn't own one.

    Bravo. Well said.
     
  13. Re: Idiots always having to compare cars with Ferrari's

    Lotus's are pretty reliable, and TVR's are getting better, but japan hasn't got anything on porsche-you can buy a 40yr old one and it will still work better than a ferrari.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: Idiots always having to compare cars with Ferrari's

    They do it because Ferraris are the BEST ;). Seriously though, i dont see whats wrong with comparing an Esprit with an F355, they are the same class of car!
     
  15. Re: Idiots always having to compare cars with Ferrari's

    Well any high performance car demands alot of work on it no matter what you buy, Plus who cares Lotus,Ferrari,Lambos, doesn't really matter all of them are sweet,I'd take any of them.
