There is a thread running over on lotustalk by someone in the USA who is converting an Evora to run on electricity (EV): http://www.lotustalk.com/#/topics/390674?page=1&_k=pg3gmy

When Elon Musk bought the Bond S1 Esprit (which he mounted in the Tesla design studio to provide inspiration.....) he talked about putting a Tesla drivetrain into an enlarged Esprit body, making it watertight and going diving. He reckoned a production run of 10 or so at a $1m a pop. Wonder what happened to that?

He would of probably sold them all to collectors easily,  1 million is pocket change to some people,  its only lottery dream money to some of us mere mortals :(

Back seats removed for battery space. Who'd want a car with only 2 seats. On the plus side they have taken an S1 and want to model the dash on a late model oodi. :whistle:

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

I was down for one of the first Evora's but ended up with a Tesla Roadster.  This would be the perfect upgrade for me.

If thats the 414E I tried to persuade them to sell them - quite a few willing buyers at the time but got the impression it was a project done because there was (government) funding available not because they wanted to make it.  Such a shame - they were ahead of the curve with the move to EVs and are now behind.

Awesome Stuart - well done getting it.  Somewhat jealous as I see from your signature you also have the active suspension Esprit, was that the one that was stored outside?  I tried to buy that one as well but they said no.  At least after I asked they cleaned it up and put it on display inside.  

Apologies if you have described your experiences with the 414E somewhere already if so please let me know where.
