Scruffy Looker: 1988 Lotus Esprit

The Lotus Esprit (es-spree) enjoyed a remarkably long life with only minor changes in its 28 year lifespan. Somehow, the little UK based car builder managed to produce over 10,000 examples from 1976-2004. The Lotus Esprit looks the part of super car in any generation, and the Peter Stevens redesign (1987-1993) is my favourite, because it maintains some of the crispness of the earlier design and doesn’t quite become a study in scoops that is the 1994-2004 Julian Thompson redesign. Find this 1988 Lotus Esprit offered for $14,400 in Sunnyvale, CA via fakesmoke marketbrit.
