This should bring a smile to every car lover

No pun intended, Nissans and Mitsubishi are great cars but still....

Excellent ad. But I am looking now in the dictionary to find the true meaning of the word " affordable " when related to the Porsche 911. ;) [nt]

Yes, I grow up dreaming about owning a Mitsubishi!

after realising the dream with a Mitsubishi cold plus and an Mitsubishi attrage lately, I decided to get another M.

Could we say: Mitsubishi/Nissan = Grand Seiko, and Lotus = JLC then? :) Best, É. [nt]

Lotus = JLC, that could be fine, but the engine is outsourced... [nt]

Wasn't the engine borrowed to Renault for the Europe or / and the Elan? [nt]

The Europe had a 1.5 borrowed from Renault but was also powered by the 1.6 twincam, a ford based with lotus head. The Elan only had the TC (except mine which had an Alfa Romeo engine, but that's a complete different story). Best. É. [nt]

No, the car is gone some time ago now. But don't worry, there will be something else to replace it at some point soon :) Best, É. [nt]

I don't know yet.

I've had three Elises S1, one Elan, one Caterham, and all this car passion started with an old Austin Healey Sprite mk3! I am at a stage where I wonder whether I should go more toward luxury, power and long distance capacity (Porsche?), rather than noisy, smelly but with amazing handling.
I'm still thinking about it.

Nice dilemma! Personally, I would go for both. For example, my Volvo P 1800 doesn't have rust, so I avoid taking it when it rains. So I need a modern one, too. AND the pleasures are...

Very complementary, as well...



You're right, that is what I am thinking more and more: a tesla as daily driver and a classic car in the garage for dry sunny weekends! Best, É. [nt]

Great find! I saw a Carrera GT when I was 17 doing an internship near Stuttgart. This car is still on my mind, big time! Best, É. [nt]

I dreamed about a 911 a lot!

 By: patrick_y : July 7th, 2019-08:28
Admittedly, I still do, but instead of dreaming within Porsche's box of available cars, I now I dream about an electric Porsche one day, one that can drive itself, one that can take me on long road trips while I nap in the car.
