That's good going. I wonder how many are still on the road.

Interesting.  I wonder if that number includes the Europa S which was based on that platform as well.

 

The 50,000th Lotus car made was an S2 M100 Elan in 1995 (http://www.lotuscars.com/lotus-world/1990s-heritage - go halfway down page).  

 

With 40k Elise/Exige having been made, a thousand or so Esprits since 1995, and 2500 or so Evora to date I wonder when the 100,00th car from Lotus will arrive?

Is that list specific as written (typed) Bibs or does it include all the model variants?
