Not a lot of love for the 134 it would appear. Does anyone have any idea of what it might be like? All I've heard is "4 door coupe", but that's hardly definitive.

Sorry, I don't keep up with things that much. Everything I know is from here and from much more knowledgable people then me.

Damn, too late to edit my previous post. I was obviously thinking of the 133 when I made the comment about 4 door coupe. However I'm keen to know more about all these future EV models.

Now have to wait to see what the 134 looks like - a smaller version of yesterdays launch of the 132..

From the above video:

Type 133 = "Four door coupe" "will follow in a different vein - a lower product" "Still al lifestyle product"  

Type 134 = "Crossover" "Something different, newer" "a smaller crossover SUV"

So will the 134 be something like a Rav4 or not that small?

Saw a reference somewhere to it being in the same sort of category/size as a Jeep Compass. ie a D segment vehicle?

Yep, in terms of EV known/proven resources and competencies, Porsche is ahead and a known quantity, especially including dealerships. But they're suffering from their own success in my eyes, in that they can't do anything too extreme that compromises mass market appeal. This shows itself in their conservative styling and sterile sports cars (that aren't GT products). 

On the other hand, Lotus' key advantages for me are 1) their cutting edge and well executed styling and 2) their commitment to optimizing the driver engagement of their product. The latter point manifests itself in a more aggressively tuned vehicle but also in making decisions that prioritize what's best for the product/customer over the business, like for example using bonded aluminum instead of much easier to manufacture welds. Lotus has to go above and beyond to gain market share, and on the other hand Porsche has (one of?) the highest margins per vehicle sold in the entire industry.
