Apparently adding the A/C and radio back only costs 41 lbs in weight. Yay!

And there's a lithium ion battery option which saves 22 lbs of that. YAY!



Very nice car. Can't wait.

I think the adage, "Don't fix what isn't broken" comes into play here.


It's only been 3 years since the introduction of the 987...It's kind of premature IMO.

So much dislike for the Lotus... :p I find it very comfortable at 6'2" and 260 lbs. I'll stop there lest I be flamed for offering a different perspective.

Lotus cars should have a big, bright disclaimer on them that says, "THIS CAR IS NOT FOR EVERYONE." You're not the only one who buys an Elise or Exige and then sells it after a short while.

Same here! Most people I know (such as myself) switch from 987s to Elises and never look back!



Good choice and congrats :) Can't wait to be in another Porsche myself.

That looks great!



To make it exactly like an Exige, you'd need the fastback engine cover and the wing would be mounted to that instead of the rear, but that looks pretty good!!!!

Hey guys,

All right, fair enough. I know that I have taught my legs to like sitting closer to the pedals in vehicles because I have better pedal feel. Now everyone thinks I sit too close.

Thanks dj :D


It's such a fun car...I can take turns in it at 10-15mph faster than the Boxster and EFFORTLESSLY.


The Boxster feels like a dump truck by comparison.

Thanks for the tips. This example does have the starshield.
