You will never get double the performance out of a car for double the price. And secondly I stated before that the Porsche has things the Elise cannot offer- such as creature comforts in addition to very good performance. The Porsche is a very comfortable machine that is equally as happy on the road as a DD as it is on the race track tearing the Elise a new one. The only time an Elise could put up a fight is in low-speed quick turns. As soon as there are sweepers, straights, and stops the Porsche will wave good bye to the Elise and then look good while driving home whereas the Elise driver will need to get his fillings replaced from the rough ride!!! :p

I respect the Elise for being an extremely nimble little machine but I think it is a completely different car than the Porsche. The Porsche is more of a driver's car that can be practical and fun whereas the Elise can only be fun during Autocross or REALLY smooth roads.

Also note that most reviews of the Elise vs the Porsche- The Elise is equiped with race compound tires and the Porsche with streets. Put the race compound on the Porsche and it would pull even further ahead of the Elise.
