Gus82 Posted October 13, 2011 Report Share Posted October 13, 2011 (edited) 1 of 3 LHD cars is already in Belgium... http://www.autojunk....tus-evora-s-jps How would this news reflect towards the F1 Team owners? It could be a coincidence, but if I was announcing that a rumour about the owner of the F1 team I was involved in wasn't buying into my company, then I wouldn't simultaneously release details of one of the companys cars in that F1 teams livery (I obviously know its based on a historic Lotus colour scheme!), unless I had a motive to promote that there is still a link between the two etc. Its not like it was a big preplanned launch given its just photos of a sticker pack that will be applied to just 3 cars. It also seems especially odd as one of the three cars has blatently been advertised on Pistonheads for some time. I've been admiring it occasionaly for at least the last two weeks! Plus I would also add that look at what has happened at Force India and Torro Rosso recently. One minute they're not for sale, the next minute large percentages of the team were sold to other investors. And the Proton press release leaves open the opportunity of future collabarations. Given the number of people reporting the rumours I still expect some sort of additional agreement or equity swap between the two organisations at some point in the not too distant future.
