Lotus Elise or C5 Z06....err....David or Goliath as I affectionately refer to them.

Two cars that are so differnt, yet have nearly identical performance.

I'm probably going the other direction. I take my city vehicle home, so my SI gets very little use. I'll probably go classic. Some of those old Triumph GT6's are popping up and have been catching my eye. If I needed a daily driver though, it would defenitly be a RWD IS 250 with a 6spd stick. I'd rather a 350, but no manual tranny that I know of. Ah its fun to dream. My SI only has 10k miles on it, and is basically still new. I'd be a fool to not just hang onto it for a while.

Would really like a Lotus or an NSX. It's just so hard to imagine spending $35k+ for a car almost as old as I am, or a Lotus that is almost completely bare on the inside.. This is a couple years from now though when the Si is paid off and I make Staff or Tech sergeant.

The problem with the C6 Z06 in my opinion, is that it isn't worth the price. You're spending well over $40k for a used one. Then you have the C5 Z06 that is just as fast, and costs half as much.

Until the price drops like a rock in about 2-3 years, its not something I'd want to make the horrible fiscal decision to invest in.

In 2-3 years, a C6 Z06 will be selling for less than a comparable mileage 8th gen Si, just like the C5 Z06 is right now.

My thoughts are just that if you can afford an Si, you can afford a Z06.
