    Car looks great, its specs however are very disappointing and its not a shock Lotus didn't really even talk about them during the presentation. Even they seem embarrassed of them.

    Nissan 400Z will have 400HP at $30k USD. This is starting at over $80k with less HP and weighs more than an Evora (even if just slightly)? This car should have launched at 450HP at the absolute minimum for the V6. At these specs Lotus is going to get nowhere near their target IMO. Looks and tech only take you so far, I don't see this out performing its rivals and in the end that was the most important thing it needed to do.

    I know eventually there will be higher HP version, but this is actually worse than I would have even guessed.

    The good news is I don't feel like I need to sell my Evora anytime soon.

    Might be smoke and mirrors, but saw this in a screenshot 


  2. Great to hear from you guys and that there Interest in emerging from our lockdown bunkers!

    Post May 17th I suppose for meet, current proposal for easing of restrictions is 30 people outdoors (hope it blinking warms up a bit!) or 6 indoors, two tables if needed (or is not in spirit of restrictions 🤔)

    Assume Bird in Hand is still the place to meet? And we can always take a snoop down the road at Lotustropolis?

    Probably need numbers and pre-booking

    Resurrect thursday evenings?

    In my experience 99% of Elise drivers don't wave back at Esprit drivers.  Don't know why.  Yet I get bloody Ferrari drivers waving at me.  Please Elise drivers wave back :)


    Agreed. Most Elise drivers blank me in the Esprit and Europa. Happened to me this evening. Grey Elise on A143 Haddiscoe Dam - blanked.


    Evora drivers wave / flash, as do I to them.

  4. You should get the app Untappd or Beerbook as I call it.

    The app logs your beers and pubs and you share with your drinking buddies you link with. You get a chance to rate the beers, put in your tasting notes and take a photo then toast those buddies. Good if you have mates all over the world. You also collect awarded badges and who doesn't like collecting stuff!.
