Decision's ready...

Modern super cars don't have four lug wheels. I hate it.

Thanks for your time.

I was lucky enough to go round Castle Combe in an M12 last year (as a passenger unfortunately) The ride diddn't dissapoint in any way and that was with the driver not really pushing the car any way near its limits. New car has really aggressive looks and performance to match, but am torn over new or old regarding styling. Same as Esprit - G car or S car.

Alright, I've let it boil for a while and I absolutely love it. I loved the M12's style too, but part of my loving it might be based on relief that they did the right thing and didn't release the M14

Maybe Lotus is doing something similar... releasing crappy looking renderings and seeing how people respond. (I read the M15 was made in response to direct criticism of the M14, which is easy to criticize).

Like the M12, the only criticism I can really levy is that both rear ends look kind of cheap (honestly I can ignore the interior issues, and kind of think they both look cool in their own way)

Good luck to Lotus then :huh: Hopefully whatever they're doing works.

Out and out KIT CAR

Kitcar styling,

kitcar finish, kitcar engine.

It's a huge leap back after the M12 and M14.

Exept for the interior, which had never been good.

If they changed the M14 into this becouse of public comment

i pretty shure this would not be the definitive model.

But other possibility for styling change is that the rounded

rear body of the M14 could create a lot of rear end lift.

Like the audi TT.
