My understanding is that the scale of demand for FE Elise and Exige surprised Lotus and used up all the production space to the end of the year.  I was speaking to someone at Lotus yesterday, bus

But not the Evora.....

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Motoring history shows that there are cars that factories couldn't sell only latter in time they became quite sort after.

Remember an EV prototype EVORA was made and in the EVORA case there is more a legitimate reason for conversions to EV latter (😱) Try doing this with a Dancing donkey, Yes there is lots of other cars out there that could be converted. ONLY issue in the UK an EV conversion removes the classic status.

And the second Lotus article in a fortnight on some other minor motoring website. Amazing how many people have realised there's not long left to scratch their itch, so to speak.

Hendy's website no longer lists Elise FE/Exige FE or any Evora available to order, the only car listed is the Evija.

They have a bit of Evora stock! Don’t think it is worth discounting them as they won’t have much else to sell for the rest of the year.

I am surprised we have not seen any photos of unusual Lotus here and there with mottled camouflage paint jobs yet. I guess though with their own track, very few get to escape to other venues.

I guess it looks enough like a 488 that they just slapped a Ferrari sign on as camouflage and no one noticed... 😂

Manufacturers often collude with the freelance photographers and magazines to get "spy" shots out to a planned timetable ahead of a launch, as part of a teaser campaign.  Lotus are no different and are starting to feed them out.  This one is from last month and expect more over the next few weeks.

I’ve been told by a very reliable source that we should expect to start seeing ‘spy shots’ some time next month.

Sounds similar to leaks from the government. Like Yes Prime Minister etc.

that shouldn't be so difficult, don't think there is one government department that doesn't have a tap dripping, including those where all in the dept. have signed the OSA!

Maybe because the car will be testing abroad like IDIADA, Nardo or The NS were a lot of 'spy' photographer tend to hang around.
