    you're a s2k sack rider so regardless you're going to defend or argue.


    you are just one of many worthless car trolls.


    having driven BOTH cars, the elise outhandles the s2k by a wide margin. that being said, i could tolerate an s2k for a daily driver, but certainly not an elise.

    so just because they make less of the Elise, they charge $20,000 more?

    the Elise looks like a kit car you'd build in your garage.

    so the elise costs $20,000 more because they just put less comfort in the car so it can weigh less???

    so you're saying a Celica GT-S engine costs more than a Honda S2000 engine???

    if you want a minimalist sports car, why wimp out and get the slower, more comfortable one?
