  1. I agree with Breeze in that Lotus do need to have plan - on what models are to fill which sector. I worry about the SUV in that although they're obviously extremely popular at the moment - it hasn't done much good for Maserati - but them again you see an awful lot of Porsche ones about. To me they should aim for models that fit in along the lines of: 1) Basic/comparatively cheap/enthusiasts - Elan/Elsie 2) Track focused - Exige 3) Sporty but comfy with a tad of practicality for the teenage kids that you have to run around - Elite/Eclat/Excel 4) Gorgeous to Look at, Sporty as hell and want an excuse not to be Dad's Taxi - Esprit 5) You own a dog = SUV 6) You have loads of money and want cutting edge design and technology - Hypercar
  2. This might be interesting https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/exclusive-ginetta-readies-secret-aston-martin-rival
  3. Very nice - congratulations 👍
  4. Probably because it’s neither hardcore like the Elise/Exige, supercar enough like the Esprit, nor a proper 2+2 like the Elite/Eclat. Personally I really like the Evora - but when I went to look at it and my 14 year old couldn’t get in the back - that ruled it out 😭
  5. Rather nice - shame about the price
  6. They are nice - sorry you didn't get one
  7. Well I think its great that Lotus has had its most profitable year and increased World Wide Sales - its slightly disappointing that UK Sales fell 11.47% from 279 to 247; although in % terms it is comparable with Porsche who feel 11.49%
  8. Hopefully this is just a blip https://www.scmp.com/business/companies/article/2181127/chinese-carmaker-geelys-shares-plunge-116pc-after-annual-sales
  9. Hi - do you mean that the steering makes a sound when you put it on full lock?
  10. Beautiful car - well done 👍
  11. Well James May got it right https://twitter.com/MrJamesMay/status/1075465246511427584
  12. He's an awful journalist and on Top Gear comes across more wooden than Pinocchio. However, trying to point out this to him will get you nowhere - as you'll just get blocked. Better things to do is give reviews of Top Gear - specifically mentioning Chris Harris and giving him a taste of his own medicine
  13. That’s great news that it’s been saved - but I can’t help but think it was a missed opportunity for Geely - if you want to make Lotus a halo brand - what better than to have the worlds fastes car - and the £25m is probably a lot less the the development cost of a £2m hyper-car
