  1. I would assume the same. I think the Chassis evolutions are more related to more alloy castings on the front and rear substructures instead of extrusions and steel. As well as alloy and carbon fiber/plastic composite body parts.
  2. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-13/geely-s-sports-car-icon-lotus-said-to-weigh-raising-1-billion
  3. Matt Windle mentioned in the Top Gear video another announcement for the end of 2021, could it be the crossover?
  4. I do think the rendering is just a place holder for something looking a bit more representative of the products soon to be found in these revamped showrooms. But this thing really looks like a toy car.
  5. Look what Lotus PR is leaking in their latest piece on the new Lotus retail strategy: a rendering of a baby evija with much shorter rear overhang...
  6. Geely is giving Lotus almost complete free rein as to the partner they chose. Lotus has become one of their R&D centre and has the possibility to pursue their own agenda to a certain extent, which is a first for Lotus they have never had that many resources to work with. We could imagine that Cyan Racing and GGM may get involved with the future motorsport program but RML has a big advantage over Cyan right now, they are located on the same island... Beside that, they have no shortage of knowledge when it comes to endurance racing either under their own name or as a sub contractor.
  7. If this grey tiny little thing is it and it starts at 55k ....Pfff, it is the heck of a value proposition. It looks bonkers. this is not even supercars looks, it is hypercar looks, it is literally a baby Evija, the rear 3/4 seen from the side is very MP4/12C as mentioned but the only question really is how much luggage space in the boot?
  8. The next incarnation of Evora, i'm guessing.
  9. is it that piece or is there another one : https://www.pistonheads.com/features/ph-features/lotus-md-matt-windle--ph-meets/44079
  10. Looks like it may happen : https://www.autosport.com/gt/news/lotus-gearing-up-for-return-to-international-sportscar-racing/6273942/ RML is a serious motorsport company, able to run a full works program. But if GT4 then it will be mostly privateers. As the Emira is poised to be another giant killer in top spec form maybe they will go GT Le Mans for factory + GT4 for GT WC. They are testing the waters with the Lotus Engineering JBXE Racing and experiment and that puts the name out but Geely group is pro motorsport Both Volvo and Lynk & Co have had major international programs in th
  11. That is an 01 SUV by the look of it front engine ICE so not much of a mule for Lotus as it would not help setting up the ICE of type 131 but as a Geely brand Lynk & Co might enjoy some suspension tuning from Lotus prior to Lynk & Co vehicles launch in the UK and broadly speaking in the EU.
  12. When it comes to the Emira V6. I can guarantee that it will comply with much stricter EU guidelines. It will not be the Camry engine anymore in the engine bay, The 2GR-FE cannot make it thru California CARB emissions regulations anymore, The 2GR-FE is finally being discontinued, it is actually finishing its life on the Evora GT. There's no point launching a global car if from the get go, the engine can't make it on the top sport car markets (US, EU, Japan) After checking I assume that the car will either receive a 2FR-FKS or 7GR-FKS. So it is pretty much the same engine. The much newer 2
  13. To get back on the powertrain debate when it comes to the Emira V6. I think we can pretty much guarantee that it will comply with much stricter EU guidelines regardless of the engine cylinder count. the V6 will not be the Camry engine anymore, as the 2GR-FE cannot make it thru California CARB emissions regulations anylonger. The 2GR-FE is finally being discontinued, it is actually finishing its life on the Evora GT. There's no point launching a global car if from the get go, the engine can't make it on the top sport car markets (US, EU, Japan) if the car comes with the same engine la
  14. They did not frame as the 131 launch. We did that ourselves because we've been expecting this car launch for the past two years.
