  1. Her name is "Electric Blue" and she is my first Lotus car. It was love at first sight, just had to take her home. She fits perfectly next to her italian and german buddy in the garage.

  2. Hi all. After waiting for nearly a month, I finally collected my Evora Sport 410 from Silverstone. Only had it a couple of days and now the weather has turned to [email protected] Can't wait until the sun comes back

  5. At the tender age of 60 the last thing I should be wanting is for time to go fast but the July 6th can not come fast enough. Come on it’s getting a bit tiresome now all this DCT, Auto, targa top, 4pot, V6. It’s got to be better than Porsche Cockster, 2 seats 4 seats the list goes on and on. It’s all speculation and brings lots of negativity out of some people. Let’s keep the faith and hope Lotus knock it out of the park.

  6. There's a huge amount of assumption which seems to turn into outrage on here based on very little knowledge. Just saying! 6th July isn't that far away, hang onto your hats!

  7. Just saying, for those disappointed not to see the car. You were told it wouldn't be unveiled today and at no point was that promised either. I get that it's disappointing, it would be ace to see it but fingers crossed your friendly, favourite Lotus forum may be at the actual launch to live stream it in glorious 4K for you all

  9. Thought i would say hi! Picked this NA up from Will B last week, it will live along side my Elise as something i can use more often, nothing major planned for it, ive swapped the headunit for a carplay/android auto and am going to upgrade the speakers and thats about it, looking forward to more comfy european road trips, the last one roud Italy in the Elise in August wasnt exactly ideal 😄

  11. After several years of lurking/researching here, I finally started seriously looking at and bidding on S3's last year. Won one on Ebay in December but never managed to actually complete the deal, and then this one popped up locally, a 1987 HC NA, which is my favourite model as well. Much as I always said I'd never own any black car, when I went to look this was just so striking in black with the double red pinstripe that I decided I could make an exception! Overall it is in very good condition with the previous owner looking after it for 18 years, but I've already started making a few tw

  12. Did anyone else notice that the matte black one in Scotland (previously called Dexter) disappeared off Autotrader this weekend? You reckon some idiot was mad enough to travel an approx 500mi trip to buy a car unseen and drive it all the way home? ... On an entirely unconnected note. Does anyone have any recommendations for cleaning products for matte black paint? 😉

  15. I certainly wouldn’t be adding unless I robbed a bank! I’ve just bought an S1 Elise with my better half (pic below), as a hopeful future investment. Went for a rare coloured (Deep Purple) original S1 spec variant and now looking forward to getting it looking it’s best with some time and effort. So it would have to be the Exige that would be sacrificed, which the very thought of, makes me feel sick - but never say never😉 Will more likely wait and see what Emira looks like when pictures are released, and then see how long I can resist the potentially very dangerously expensive, test driv

  21. Ladies and Gents.....we have a winner! Peugeot 406 handbrake shoes are indeed correct fitment for the Evora NA and S......Not sure about the 400. All fitted today, no dramas. £16 delivered compared to £110 from Lotus

  27. This is spot on. The number of people who comment that they either didn't know Lotus still existed, or that that they made anything other than the Elise is a real challenge for the brand. It always surprises me - and then I remember that Motoring Forums in general, certainly the more specialist ones, tend to be a microcosm where the inhabitants forget that pretty much the rest of the universe base their choices and decisions on the popular view and perceived wisdom. This more than anything has to be the hurdle that Lotus needs to clear. We can get bent out of shape that Lotus is

  33. Kinda funny with this funeral talk.... I met my wife at my funeral home and she hates my lotus, purchased the GT early March. She just doesn’t get it.... last week I went to the grocery in my evora, as I was leaving a young and very attractive blond girl parked a few spots away, she got out of her vehicle as I was putting stuff away. She said this car is so 47%*4&3 hot... I usually park on the other side of the lot but I had to check to car out. My response was thanks... and I wish my wife felt that way... she got a good laugh... when I went home and told my wife, she’s like n

  36. Well, picked her up unexpectedly early. Enjoyed the first drive tremendously, and I still have a week's holiday to look forward to next week. Such a beautiful car, and very enjoyable to drive. The steering is awesome. I'll take her into our local hills (yes, there are hills in the Netherlands) today. Onno

  40. Hello all, Long time lurker, created an account today and this is my first post. Thank you for all amazing threads and posts through the years. After the car is announced, and all seems well, I believe I will proceed with ordering the Emira within the first quarter it goes on sale.

  41. I simply cannot fathom why there is so much negativity. I thought that the presentation was polished and elevated the Lotus brand somewhat. If Lotus continue along the same line of the past 20 years there will be no 90th anniversary year, there'll be no Lotus full stop.

  43. True colors, as blue are nice.......I love them. Have a Wankel-Mazda RX-8 in blue......a fantastic car with Lotus-like road going / steering / braking performance.. A couple of weeks ago a dark grey metallic Evora GT 410 Sport was the last new Evora available at the official Lotus distributor in the Netherlands. This color is within my preferences and therefore did not hesitate to purchase this last one and traded in my Esprit Turbo SE. Since 2009 only 20 new Evora's have been sold by the Lotus importer.......a further 10-20 2nd hand units privately imported from the

  44. So finally today I picked her up from a full geo setup. The thing was miles out - it’s now as per the book. I must say the drive home was utterly sublime and I’m smitten all over again. I’m glad to only have one lotus currently means I have to drive it. next up will be figuring out rebuilding of the futuras
