    We don’t need to finalise colours until the autumn.  They’ll have samples before then!

    Do you think they'll offer an expanded portfolio of colors or special option colors like they did on the Evora?

    Would love to see a mock up of a JPS livery on the Emira.  Lot of nice contours to work the gold off of.

  2. It's a 3 way tie for between Seneca Blue, Magma Red, or Hethel Yellow.  All with tan interior, yellow calipers, and Design 1 Silver Alloys.

    Lotus needs to send out paint samples to dealers ASAP!  They should've dropped the samples in expedited post on the day of the launch.

  3. As much as I'd like to buy the manual, the wife just cannot drive a manual with any confidence.  This limited how much we were able to take the Evora on road trips.  I got stung again thinking a manual is the way to go when I bought a Vantage V8.  Should I make the same decision again on the Emira? 

  4. My dealer is taking copies of photo ID with an email on interest of Emira for right now.  They'll circle back for deposits once they have more information to do so.  I put my name on the list. 

    The color selection is pretty limited for now.  Hard to believe there is no white or classic BRG.  Is the nimbus grey the same as the nimbus grey on an Audi?  I am digging the hethel yellow and magma red.

    My gut feeling is that they won't for two reasons;  they will be concentrating ALL new resources on the EV range, and the cost involved in new approvals will be hideous and not worth it to them.

    I'd find it hard to believe Lotus would go after engineering and manufacturing a targa.  If Emira is a success; speed up EV development.  If Emira is a flop; speed up EV development.

    But an Aston and a California are GT cars, for fast touring, not really sports cars to be taken on the road to exploit their handling and reward the driver. So not probably an "ideal" comparison for the Emira.

    California has the same transmission and engine and 458.  One could say the Evora is a GT in the same way.  2+2 with GT in the name...  Both Aston's and the California are rewarding cars to drive to me.
