Unappreciated Mashup – 1991 Lotus Elan SE

Purists suck. They suck because they don’t judge a car on its merits, but on how it conforms to expectations. A purist will only talk well of a car if it’s rear-wheel drive, manual transmission, metal body, and has a engine provenance from the manufacturer. The 3rd generation Lotus from the 1990’s is everything a purist rejects. But it’s an amazing car in it’s own right.
