What on earth has happened to people in August and September so far?

It is not as if we have all had holidays.

I  can only assume, after the initial rush, that people are now waiting for more info =- which is out in about a week.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

I've just seen that 30 April 21 Pugwash & 19 May 21 Gashead1105 & 4 June 21 DJW early deposits have had their phonecalls to configure the emira. Has anybody else? I'd be interested to know how quickly they are getting through the orders. I would assume the majority of you lucky early birds would be on this forum so the list above might not be missing too many names?

Not got my call - I am a bit further out. No idea yet if it will be for the V6 or both.

And that is you confirming the spec as chosen on the configurator and then they note that down and get £3k from you?

I guess I will be called tomorrow.

Im sure they haven’t forgotten about you Tom, this thread is quite valuable actually. Interesting piece of information going forward as we can make sure lotus are keeping the queue straight. Or highlight if they’ve cocked something up

So I ordered 8am the day after you after finding out my order the previous night hadn’t registered which might mean a phone call imminently and some hard decisions to make over what I want to do given expected delivery times. Will have same problem as others though that I usually can’t answer my phone with the nature of my work.

Ha, I would have asked her but she told me today she wants a V6 too.

I paid my deposit online around 10pm on the night of the reveal and got the call at 4pm yesterday. I asked about my position in the queue and was told I'm in the first hundred, but not sure I believe that! Unless they're still running the dealer and online deposit lists separately, a lot of people have dropped out or a lot have said they want the i4, top 100 seems optimistic.

You'll definitely get one then. Congrats!

Can you imagine if, due to massive over subscription, that Lotus decided to deliver cars on the drawing of lots!!??   It would be bedlam on here.

Could be right if most of the deposit holders were thinking they are getting the Emira for under 60k and do not want to wait 12 + months for base spec cars. Maybe a lot of deposits have been pulled and are now waiting for test drives early next year before placing an order.

Fingers crossed my phone call comes today, placed my deposit around 11am the morning following the launch. That said, it sounds like some early depositors haven't received yet. I wonder if they've partitioned the list up and someone with later deposits is moving a bit quicker than someone with early deposits? In any case I wouldn't be worried, they're not exactly going to start building customer cars tomorrow, if they're really going to fulfil cars in the order deposits were placed they kind of need the full list of committed buyers locked in before starting. That said, the anticipation still gets me on edge 🤣
