Depending on individual perception, it's either a great time to be
a sports car fan or a sad time to be a sports car fan. In addition
to a whole portfolio of nimble weekend warriors, the mere existence
of incredible cars like Porsche GT3s, Ferrari Specials and a roster
of upcoming mid-engine Corvettes is enough to build a shrine at
your favorite gas pump. But that sentiment can quickly turn
bittersweet when minds drift to the predicted death of internal
combustion. Like most automakers, Lotus has committed to an
all-electric future. And, while change is sometimes hard to accept,
that corporate transition could be a windfall for collectors.
There's no doubt the Esprit is one of the most, if not the most,
iconic Lotus ever produced. And this awesome Esprit V8 is certainly
one of the best versions of that icon! Spanning 28 years, 19
variations and roughly 10K units, the quintessential Lotus has
endured as a beacon of automotive innovation. And in the future,
it'll likely be a beacon of collectability.
