I owned a 93.5 for 5 years. Reason I mention the .5 is the interior and wing were upgraded to the same as the S4. The Esprit was the four banger with the turbo and charge cooler . I went on number of runs with other Esprit owners both four bangers and v8 guys. While the fours handled much better the sound of that v8 really is special . I drove a few of the v8s and the one thing I didn't like was the clutch. Double plate clutch that worked like a toggle switch either on or off . It was possible but difficult to feather unlike other sports cars. If you've got itch go for it . Fun car that got lots of thumbs up from people .
Here's a photo of a photo the day I sold it :)
