Lotus Esprit
The wedge is good. The wedge works. The collector market may be starting to catch onto the Esprit, but with five generations ranging from the mid-1970s to the mid-2000s, there are enough out there to find a decent-to-good one under $40,000. Get the best deal possible and save the balance for your local Lotus whisperer; you’ll be glad you did.
