I like it. Just needs a little finishing.

$12,900 CAD? That's very close to what you can get a real Esprit for, if you shop around carefully.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Although I bet the fiero version is more reliable, easier to work on, and had more available/cheap parts.

Depends I guess. The Fiero version doesn't really look like a Lotus, but it has all the Lotus badging on it instead of the Pontiac/Fiero badging. Someone certainly put a fair bit of work into building it, but it's a one-off and from the pics, the quality/reliability looks like it could be a little questionable.

Plus the shaming you'd probably get at shows for a quasi-Lotus kit that looks like it's trying to be a real Lotus with the badging.

You would need to install a rear camera for backing out of parking spots and Dobey is right about the kidding at car shows.

No worse than backing out of a spot in any other Fiero. Especially when two SUVs decide to park next to you. A back-up camera isn't really going to help seeing to the side. My truck has one, and it's not all that great. I very rarely look at it. Doesn't help that it feels weird looking down and forward at the center console, when backing out, either.

My wifes suv has an amazing back up camera. the 7" LCD color screen helps along with all the rear sensors. It did take some getting used to looking forward "as posted above". Works as well in the dark too!
