  1. Well, just frustration. We should not lose track of the following: It's a ridiculously stunning supercar-looking beauty It's a Lotus - rare, desirable and desired It's great value when you look at it as a new car package For the first year or two you will feel godly driving it around 👍
  2. I wonder where BOTB were in the queue...
  3. Yellow is easily in the top 6 colours...
  4. The car still looks like a 'Supercar' on the road. Great spot that. We will be all lucky to see more than a few this whole year - not including our own.
  5. That still sounds right from when we last spoke at Lotus HQ. Only a 1 month-ish delay. Clearly depends on time of deposit. Some will move into January 2023. Wow. Just shows the demand post-Goodwood. Also, I suspect you also hit they start building the Rest of the World cars which would, of course, hit total production numbers, for the UK market, in any given month.
  6. Sorry to hear that though family and a roof over your head always has to come first... Unless... there is only two of you and the other half can accept sleeping in the Emira! 😀
  7. I was surprised when the missus liked it! Might have a chance. I like it a lot and at some point we have to go EV to make up for the guzzling the current cars do.
  8. Great reading this thread! Thanks @Toqcars ! Super car. I assume you still have it and looking forward to a summer of fun. Ooh, I would love one.
  9. Wow, gotta say, I like the Esprit now possibly more than I did back in the day. It is not always about curves!
  10. Bentley are excellent - even get biscuits with my coffee but it comes at a price!
  11. Ha, yep. I won't be touching anything mechanical myself - just external shenanigans.
  12. Ah, then, like Fagin from Oliver!, my favourite character of all time, I will reviewing the situation. 😄
  13. Well, I am actually assuming it will be worse by definition. That being the disconnect between HQ and Agents/Dealers. There is no real going back. The path is set. It is now about accepting the new way and hoping that HQ work closer with agents/dealers and that HQ also starts working closer with customers and prospects. Annoyingly, there is a not a lot that needs to be done. Just better strategized and implemented comms. At present there is fear of the unknown. This needs addressing ASAP.
  14. Ha, yeah, you have a point but this might be the only way Lotus HQ can keep the agents on board. Further to that though, the agents will be a part of the sales process as people will still want to go to their local garage to see the demo cars in the flesh and perhaps drive them.. This takes up some time so it part of that work deserving of the 'fee'.
  15. They are both points worth discussing. Brand Image vs Profitability. This is always a balancing act. Where @Del Lardo is likely correct is that Lotus has currently moved towards a primary goal of business longevity whilst leveraging the pre-existing brand and goodwill. This means that, and where you are right, the brand image and personality has taken a bit of a hit in pursuit of sustainability. All new to the brand owners like myself have an 'understanding' approach BUT we will all concede that we would have loved to have the old ways back, to an extent, and certainly an improvement in comms and support, which, of course, lends a better personal touch and connection to the public. However, it is now how it is. This the way forward for them. With the move to EV, the direct approach makes most sense to me, the brand has already changed. That ship has sailed. If they can now spend some budget and resources on personal comms we will all be a lot happier. Lotus will be aware of this. How they achieve it is the tough part.
