I have always wanted a Lotus Elise or Exige. I have gone through several different Mustangs, BMW, and recently traded my Porsche Cayman GTS 2.5ltr Turbo for now my new 2024 Lotus Emira. Dark Verdant. My favorite car so far was my 760rwhp 2016 Stage 3 Roush but now it is the Porsche. I have fallen in love with driving and the light weight sports car grabbed me and I am loving it. So far I'm a little nervous if the Emira will be dependable. I'm so hoping to have a great Lotus experience. I posted in someones elses thread so I thought I would post my own introduciton.

Very nice indeed. Black rims and yellow calipers are great w/ the green color scheme.

Re dependability, mine has been event free for months (knock on wood) except for a couple of early trips to the dealership.
 
Congrats! My SA at Los Gatos messaged me today about them delivering their first Emira recently - looks like it might be yours (if I'm recognizing the dealership correctly).
 
Congrats @SlipNslide281 and welcome to the forum! I was able to see a Dark Verdant in person for the first time yesterday and it looked great!

Yes they got a delivery of 6. They pulled them off the truck and you can tell they went on a long journey. They were so dirty. 😁
Oh nice. Thank you for the link!! :)

I got lucky, on mine. I was at the dealer when the 6 cars were just removed from the truck and found out that the person who ordered the Verdant Green cancelled their order. I snatched it up as quick as I could. :) No deposit, no wait.
