    like some other boxer owners, i too am thinking of an elise as a fun little daily driver. i have been thinking it would be a fun little ride to track and even leave at the airport for travel.

    what is the secondary market pricing look like? i am wondering how these cars will fare?

    are they $30k cars?

    you thoughts are appreciated.

    I think using it for your only other "daily" car would cause you to sour on it shortly. It's a much focused track car and fun car. They can be had on the secondary market in the US for upper $30's. I think the depeciation would be similar to how the Boxsters have been - moderate. Good luck in your search, are you thinking of it as your only daily car??

    i dont drive much but the car my be too spartan as you suggest however, i should drive one and see for myself. it does seem a fun machine for me as i am certain i would be able to enjoy it , park it, track it, unlike my other cars that i am too afraid of ruining. i saw one on the road today and they look very fun...may be the ticket.

    thank you for your price comments

    Anytime ferraripete! In the midwest they seem to have asking prices of 38,900 - 42,900 for used ones. Most have under 2-3k miles on them. Have you seen one with the door open? It has a super wide AND high side. It acts as an arm rest!! Very exotic, but will be hard to enter/exit with the top on. Makes it more special in my eyes!
