Michael Downing's 1994

Michael Downing from Southern California, USA, owns a 1994 Sport 300 in Porsche Green Metallic over Black Primer, with a Black/White interior.


Sport 300 #33
Year: 1994
Colour: Porsche Green Metallic over Black Primer
Interior: Black/White
Driving Style: Fast
Miles per year: 20 – 100
Owned Since: March 1994
Purchase from: Auto Koenig, Munich Germany
Serviced at: Beverly Hills Lotus
Other Cars: '03 Mustang Cobra
Previous Lotus': None
Why an Esprit: Had a choice between a Maserati Shamal and this Sport 300. A no brainer. Always wanted a Lotus (007 syndrome) and lucked out when the Sport 300 came out.
Upgrades: Alpine stereo with 6 CD changer and Amp in front boot.
Problems: Had to replace the ECU in month 6 and a broken clip on the roof hinge, else never a problem.

I was very fortunate to be invited to the Historic races at the Nuernburgring in '94 by Lotus.Took the car on the Nordschleife 5 times and twice on the new track that weekend. Best place to really drive a Sport 300, or any Lotus for that matter.
