  1. type 131.5 😄 Can we have some teasers please. And some riddles.
  2. You seem to be hinting that Lotus may at some stage be floated on the stock market. This is probably the wrong thread but is that good or bad? Sorry Bibs. Black knight takeover and carve up?
  3. Maybe the Polestar 3 Precept Concept is a closer likeness but with some design features from the Evija (boomerang vents?) 2021 Polestar 3 to be performance SUV with Precept influence | Autocar
  4. The wing mirrors are different and it also says it doesn't have the Lidar periscope that we have seen in the teaser. It also states that the Polestar 3 is going to be constructed in Charleston USA whereas the 132 is going to be constructed in Wuhan. If they were the same vehicle wouldn't they be manufactured in the same factory? With regards to the Lidar periscope it is situated at the front of the roof but along it's rear edge there seems to be a seam that goes the whole width of the roof.... unusual.... What's that all about?
  5. Perhaps it should be renamed stealth green. 😄
  6. You've got aids!!!! Yikes.
  7. mmm.. Makes me want to carry a cricket bat around with me. Purely for defensive purposes of course. This years Reith lectures have a section about AI and attack drones for military purposes. Good in the right hands, bad in the wrong hands. Kargu military attack drone, maybe I need a bigger cricket bat.
  8. @electro_boy Chevy C8 - A Lamborghini for people that can't afford one?
  9. Very angular. Not dissimilar to the Chevy Corvette C8. Previous MR2 had some similarities to the Boxster.
  10. Ah! I thought with the rim size being the same that the tyre size would also be the same. Cheers Kieran.
  11. Looking at the head on skeleton line drawing there are two types of tyres, fat ones and skinny ones. I would guess the fat ones are the cup 2s and the skinny ones are the Good Years. Happy for someone to correct me if I'm wrong with that. The skinny tyres are sitting higher than the fat ones. I'm presuming this is the difference between Sport setup and Touring setup. Again, happy to be corrected if I'm wrong. If the skinny tyres are sitting higher in the drawing then the car will be closer to the ground. I would have thought the Sport setup would have fatter tyres and sit closer to the ground. Alternatively, if the suspension travel is shorter on the Sport causing the tyres to sit higher and the car to sit lower then I would have thought the fatter tyres would be higher and the skinny tyres lower. Confusing. Are the skinny tyres winter tyres? Why would the ride height be different?
  12. Change your name by deed pool to match the number plate. It's cheaper. What do you think @Bibs?
  13. Emira approach angle is 7.9 degrees according to the skeleton drawing.
  14. The Emira length is 4412 and the Evora length 4394m which is 18mm difference. I think the images must have been taken from a different angle and giving a different perspective and scale. The Evora approach angle was 11.5 degrees in earlier models becoming 10 degrees later. I don't know what the Emira approach angle is but wouldn't be surprised if it is similar.
  15. The Emira wheelbase is 2575 and the Evora wheelbase is 2575 so the picture overlay isn't accurate. If anything it might make your front overhang point more relevant.
  16. Looking at this skeleton drawing that was in the pictures thread the i4 (green colour) and v6 (tan colour) seem to be positioned in more or less the same space. The v6 has the supercharger sat on top. The extra space created by the moved bulkhead is probably due to thermal management as mentioned by @TomE and in other threads.
  17. Space needed for the turbo and pipework?
  18. On both occasions Lewis Hamilton was driving to avoid a collision. Max Verstappen's driving technique is crass and he is a danger to himself and everyone else on the track.
  19. Lucky that he still had the dashcam recording at the time he was notified of the "offence"
  20. Mercedes also need to win the constructors championship in Toto's mind. So that will strongly influence his decision and strategy.
  21. Breath, See, Stretch. The next will be Awaken. Then it will be released?
