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?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
