New Lotuses on horizon

Eagle lands next year, followed by Esprit replacement

From the outside Lotus looks to be in a precarious position. Owner Proton is subject to a takeover bid, and while the Malaysian company's homeland state-of-the-art manufacturing plant has huge appeal for potential buyers, a small, specialist sports car maker with a dodgy financial past, based in rural Norfolk, could seem like unwanted baggage.

Lotus CEO Mike Kimberley (image) confesses that he isn't party to the machinations of the Proton takeover but he is adamant that whatever the outcome, Lotus has a future. In fact, he believes the company is now as strong as it has ever been

That was taken in MJK's office and is one of the few remaining pics of Colin at the factory. He's also got some original pencil design drawings on the Europa and Excel on the wall, they are tres cool! :welcome:

There was some discussion over the Aston engine in my earlier post:

http://www.lotusespritforum.com/forums/ind...showtopic=11562

I'm slightly confused about the Eagle. Autocar has, for several weeks, been showing two new cars in 2008. A Lotus Elite 2+2 early in the year and a Lotus Eagle 2+2 (Europa Replacement - their words, not mine) later on, and the Esprit Replacement in 2009. So, whats the Lotus Elite or is this just an Autocar invention?
