Social Distance Car: 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo S3

Before I pass on to the great junkyard in the sky, I want to own a supercar.  Not a "supercar" like a Honda Civic with a turbocharger and giant fart can exhaust, or a Fauxrari kit car that rides on Fiero suspension, but a legitimate supercar. Something that looks amazing, goes fast, turns heads, snaps necks, and costs a bunch of money to maintain. Ferraris and Lamborghinis are silly expensive but if you want the looks of a supercar and the budget of a classic British car...look for a Lotus. Find this 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo S3 offered for $19995 in Plano, TX via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. "Before I pass on to the great junkyard in the sky, I want to own a supercar." *preacher voice/hand in the air* Can I get an AMEN?!!

    About 5 years or so back a contractor at work had one he was trying to sell for 12k or something relatively inexpensive. Think it might have even been posted here at some point. Unfortunately, I was counting pennies then. If it was available now I would do my best to beg and borrow for it.

  2. Are you saying that getting an early NSX would make all too much sense?

  3. This article content is really unique and amazing.This article really helpful and explained very well.So i am really thankful to you for sharing keep it up..


  4. “the looks of a supercar and the budget of a classic British car” Ah, no.

    My time with a lotus was much more costly than any of the multitude of Triumphs or MGs I’ve had. There is a reason for that. They are fragile because they are light. This added lightness helps make them handle like few other cars. This is a supercar in every way including looks

  5. It's probably cheaper than that bugeye in the background, well until you drive it.
