I had a 2007 Lotus Elise 5 speed and everything you said about it is true in the way it drives and feels. I enjoyed this video because it was nice seeing how the changes affected the car.

Many sports cars especially from Italy made for small Italians not 6 foot plus Americans. Even side bolsters are too slim for larger Americans. Even sliding the seat back only a small amount vs other cars that offer more sliding room

It is funny that before you went into the car, i was not feeling you would fit inside it, until you got in, i guess the perspective gets all messed up by seeing through a camera. But it's cool to see this particular car, and thanks for that little sound sample, sounded really cool.

I had kind of forgotten about the Roadster, but this video blew my mind how far Tesla's come. I just looked at the Roadster as a slightly older version of the Tesla's we know now, but compare this to a 2012 Model S and the model S is absolute space-age.

So every time you lift off the accelerator then brake lights come on? That’s stupid and highly annoying and confusing to people behind you.

Forgot to mention that tesla does not service their original roadster anymore. Fascinating for a 10-15years old car

Would have loved to see it next to a current day car like the Model Y or even just him standing beside it. It is hard to judge the size from that wide-angle camera

I love the way Marques is amazed at the fact that have you have to manually put the key and turn it to start the car without releasing most average people who have cars have regular keys lol

I don't know how it is on other car cause I have never driven an automatic transmission but I really don't get why you would put the lever to the rear to engage Drive and to the front to put in Reverse??? 🤔

Ammonia fuel is future not electric or hybrid vehicles.  ammonia aka nitrogen hydrogen 3 NH3 is a cheap renewable  fuel that can be used in any gasoline engine and diesel with minor modifications.  Look up videos of ammonia as fuel. And you will see you've been lied to for over 70yrs about needing  oil gas, solar wind, nuclear,  and now electric cars
   Ammonia has been used as a  fuel before gasoline or diesel fuel even existed.. Ammonia engines existed before the combustion engine.
Ammonia was used in 1960s Nasa space race,  it is still used in rocket fuel, aviation fuel, race car fuel. A rocket car running off straight ammonia holds the land speed record. There is more energy available in ammonia than gasoline,  diesel,  ethanol. 
You don't hear about ammonia as a fuel  because of corrupt politicians and corporations  know it will destroy the oil gas, electric car,  solar wind,  nuclear power,  power grid companies.
All takes to run a gasoline engine car, truck, boat , generator etc off ammonia is a propane tank and 2nd fuel pump set set up. a diesel need a propane tank fuel pump and a cpu tunner kit to get compression right. 
You can make ammonia at home or buy ammonia making processor, and easily made anywhere in the world even in the most poorest nations. 
Ammonia is made by pulling nitrogen from air, bonding it with hydrogen through Electrolysis with water and bumping off oxygen.

The big problem with this car was that most of what made the Elise a great sports car was its weight. I owned an Elise made just a few years prior to the Tesla Roadster coming out, and it was 800kg. The Tesla Roadster, at 1305kg, was over half a tonne (62.5%) heavier - it weighed about as much as a Porsche 996 Carrera, Civic Type R etc, and in doing so lost all of the advantages of the Elise over existing sports cars (yes, "all"). The Model S, on the other hand, took on the luxury car market, and excessive weight isn't as much of a problem there, in fact its barely a problem at all, which is why it's been such a success. The only real performance credential a luxury car can have is straight line performance, and obviously the Tesla has that sorted! The same applies to the 3 compared to its competitors. Hypercars to some extend can trade punches based on straight line pace, which is why the Rimac is so revered. The true sports car remains an enigma. Which, actually, is ok, because hardly anybody buys sports cars anymore.

I don't know why, but it really, really annoys the living crap out of me when you go and sit in front of the cars, talking like you're in bed with long sleeves.

Great video, so interesting to see you driving an "old" car, and how curious you are about it being small and quaint but it is a year 2008 car, which for many is pretty new. I have driven the original ICE Elise, it is so light and fast and reckon it is the best driving experience of all time. They always were very noisy and bumpy and that is the fun of the car, but it can be driven for hours on twisty European roads. It does everything in one small package.
