Fellas don't get too wrapped up in wheelbase and track and all that......understand one thing- different mules are there to do different jobs, they don't all have to be the same to carry out their individual specified purpose. Horses for courses!.

I was half expecting someone to go off on the usual rant of......."I can't believe they are still planning to use the old doors/wing mirrors/glass/wheels" (delete as applicable).

Or someone bought a wrecked Esprit off Ebay and made their own cardboard body panels.

Does that give away the engine, or is 3506cc the Lotus V8? (which I wish were the engine they use, at least the first couple of years...)

Went to the Lotus dealer today to finally cancel my Europa order and retrieve my deposit but the salesman persuaded me to hang on for around 4 weeks.

He said that details of a new model should be announced and the model fits between europa and new esprit, He mentioned it would be of M250 size.

I asked him if he new why the Esprit had been delayed and he said it was down to a change of engine.

Obviously this could all be codswallop but I have a feeling that our factory visit next monday will be one to remember!!
