19: 1989-1995 Lotus Elan M100
Back in the 1990s, Lotus was still a performance-based operation, and the Elan M100 was the focal point. From a design perspective, the Elan M100 is excellent. The car is straight to the point as a performance roadster, which is something that enthusiasts appreciated. The interior of the Elan M100, on the other hand, is a mess of things that you need and things you don’t.
Surprisingly enough, though the Elan M100 served as the base for the Tesla Roadster. Elon Musk had always appreciated the unique design of the car. Lotus engineering is among the best in the world when it comes to driving characteristics. You won’t find a better driving roadster than the Lotus Elan. Today, the Elan M100 is a coveted collector’s item, but that interior just has to go according to Auto Express.
