thoughts on the original S260 (09, when they actually still had carbon interiors)
 
curious what is the consensus on the S260... back in 09 i think 22 were sold stateside and obviously the economic climate was to blame... but curious the thoughts concerning value when compared to say, the S240 09'..

horsepower being "eh"... do the S260's carbon interior and panels demand more in resale or as it ages that allure is lost?

I have the 09 s260. I had a 05 elise before that. So can't comment on S220, S240 etc.

I think 2010 S260 still retains the CF interior. 2011 S260, final editions, probably did not include the CF interiors.

AFAIK, 09 S260s are much sought after, as the lightest S260 compared to 2010 and 2011.

Not sure what you meant by "eh" on the hp. It's still a mighty fast little bugger on the track. Did I mention it's equipped with a accusump from factory?

i just meant the difference is negligible, and i guess 2010 does have carbon but future ones do not.
