  1. The Cayman GTS really is great. I love ours. I am pretty certain though the Emira will be at least as good dynamically and with those looks it is a definite winner. I now have to make the decision if we need two sports cars in the household☺️First world problems eh..
  2. Yes sorry I did mean November. ☺️Got over excited
  3. Just sorted out my trip to Silverstone on the 1st October. Nicely getting real now😎

    Lotus Emira

    We haven’t got anything silly on ours really, but when things like climate control and folding mirrors are options things soon start to add up.

    Lotus Emira

    Our GTS was still £78k☺️. I still think the i4 will be £60k base and the V6 £68k.
  6. Just ordered a BMW M340i touring to go alongside the Emira, which works for me as a good two car garage. Given the crazy world at the moment not sure which will arrive first!
  7. To be honest they had me with the launch Seneca blue so not even thinking about other colours☺️ I just wish they would drip us some more details to keep us going
  8. Good to know that there are a few bikers in the Lotus fraternity😎 I probably prefer bikes to cars if truth be told 😮and have an S1000RR M sport, a Street Triple 765RS and my baby an immaculate 2000 Yamaha YZF R1 in the garage at the moment. Mrs W has a Ducati Monster I play with from time to time too.
  9. We have a deposit on the Cayman GTS and the Emira too☺️ Wasn’t planned, but so taken with the Lotus I just had to do it. I am probably in big trouble as I was supposed to be replacing my M2 with some sort of SUV

    I had one of the first 51 plate cars too, currently have the latest JCW hatch. Current thinking is for a V6 manual and in the launch car blue, black pack with the black/yellow interior. Really looking forward to seeing more details as they emerge.
  12. I have my deposit down and I will be coming out of a BMW M2 Competition and have never driven or owned a Lotus before. Not sure which version I will be going for yet, but I just had order one.

    Like many others I have my deposit down for an Emira, so thought I would join up and share in the excitement of this wonderful new car. It will be my first Lotus and I have to say I haven't been as wowed by a car for a long time. My car history is quite varied, but I do have a soft spot for the BMW MINI and am currently on car no 10 (Please don't hold that against me!) and I also like a motorbike or two.
