I wonder what the plan is to get a demonstrator to Australia?

Hmm I've not received any emails from Lotus since the first one thanking me for my deposit, but it sounds like this is the second one most people have received. To a certain extent I'm not too worried about it as my dealer has me on their list, but the fear of missing out is starting to get to me 😂

Interesting. Have not received the email either. But then, I did not indicate any preferred dealer when playing my deposit directly with Lotus online. Looks like I will need to speak to a dealer.

I am in west London. Nearest option seems to be Hexagon, and then a little distance away, B&C. Any advice on who I should go with based on service? New to Lotus - so no experience with any Lotus dealer.

Thanks all!

FOMO is real and very present in my life at the moment...

Yes you're right. In my excitement at the title I misunderstood the OP as saying one email from Lotus and a second from B&C!

So they only be able to give expected delivery dates once order is placed? Because I’d want to know if I have a 2-3 year wait BEFORE locking in the order!

I’ve no experience of Hexagon and haven’t heard much about them. Jamie and the rest of the team at B&C are excellent.

Welcome to TLF Mark. :welcome:

I think I may have missed you when you first joined up.

You should duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well.

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)

I think they’ll be able to give an indication on delivery timeframes when the info is published.

But more specific timing will depend on how many deposits convert to orders, how many people choose V6 or i4 and numbers of First Editions versus own specs.  Your own decisions on that will also affect your delivery timing.

Thanks! Very helpful.

Was in Poole, so dropped into Hendy Lotus this morning. Good chat with the team there about the Emira. Said that timelines have been pushed back and they expect the UK roadshow to be in Oct now. The cars are still in the US. And expect some more see details to trickle in from mid-Sep.

That is contradictory to what the dealers are telling us.   

If you can use the extra month to build a few cars in the other colours then I'd be happy.  They can always supply these to dealers down the line and somebody will buy them whatever the spec.

It could be correct.  UK dealer tour starts on 21 Sept so some dealers won't have their slot until Oct.

Ah yeah, good point, There are a lot of dealers so some might only accommodate this even towards the end of October.

We will see.

I wonder how long the demonstrators are to be at each dealer or is it going to be based on potential buyers getting there on a set day?

I have asked if it will just be the blue and dark grey cars we have already seen but I will get the usual response of 'we have no further information at this time' which is how things have gone so far so I can't really complain.

It would be amazing to see two other coloured and specced cars doing those rounds. I live in hope.

Not heard anything from my local dealer yet (Park's in Hamilton). Anyone else here up in Scotland?

Agree I'd really like to see something different to the grey and blue launch cars for the dealer tour - after all, only one of them is a runner, and the blue car is so low it clearly isn't on production spec suspension. Having said that, I haven't clapped eyes on the Emira up close yet, so I'd be excited to see it in any spec 🙂

Agree - would love to see a RED one and a metallic/pearl white one. Maybe a military grey one?  Oh, what about a motorsport green one!  Damn, just let me see one of every colour on the palette please :)

 

 

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

It'll be based on the number of deposits they have taken. More deposits, more people need to see the car so it'll be at the dealer for the required amount of time. 

88 Esprit NA, 89 Esprit Turbo SE, Evora, Evora S, Evora IPS, Evora S IPS, Evora S IPS SR, Evora 400, Elise S1, Elise S1 111s, Evora GT410 Sport
