Future of Lotus


Recommended Posts

OK, a bit cheeky to claim prescience on the announcement of a "new" 911. Porsche comes out with new variants almost as often as Lotus can come up with a "special edition!" :D

From the Lotus Blog last Friday, there's an image of the Warwick campus, with the Evija and I assume the Type 131 parked outside under covers. If this is the T131, it looks tiny. I've never seen the Evija in person but it always looked compact and petite. Could the T131 be more an exige, elise replacement?

Has there been any indication when the new car will be revealed? Looking to buy a new car this year, would be nice if it was a return to Lotus.

Your best source of info is probably here:

ISTR that it will be revealed this year, available 2022.

Assuming that is a full scale model of the car or prototype, then thats an encouraging sign for me.  Keeping it compact will hopefully mean it is also light weight and not too bloated and hopefully mean it is agile too, aligning it well to the Lotus values.

They are also really into their Engineering side at present and also their heritage. Sadly I think MJK is one of the only ones left from that time! This out today in EVO magazine!

May be an image of text that says "LOTUS LOTUS ENGINEERING Driving innovation PRESENT UTURE THE TECHNOLOGY THE PEOPLE THE VISION LOTUS"

May be an image of 2 people and text that says "technologically inno welad acqui sports COLIN CHAPMAN Chapma had ability solve 1970sth sports Managing businesses TeC RUDD Chapman BRM ctor Lotus winning F1 motorsport the"

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

You should definitely apply! 

I would not mind spending some odd days at my new local dealer - they need not pay me. - But may be discount on parts/servicing.

Lotus must be hopeful of doing well with the 131 as there seem to recruiting so many.

I understand the reveal could be pencilled in for Goodwood in July, assuming that goes ahead of course.

That sounds like exactly what I do for TLF amongst other things - Wonder what the car scheme allows - GT410 in Motorsport Green and I'm all theirs :D

This role will primarily be working from home 


DO IT!
