Looks like the USA is high up the priority list - Makes a huge amount of sense, it's such a huge market and really will come alive once the 131 is for sale I'd guess! 

 

Michigan? Must've missed something. What happened to the HQ in Georgia?

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

 

I am woefully unqualified!  I'm dropping my c/v 😛

There is a Lotus engineering facility in Ann Arbor, MI.  I assume it was built back when GM owned them? A few years ago they moved HQ there. I assume it was really to save money. Then they moved to Plymouth, MI.

Here is facility in Ann Arbor:

They moved everything from Ann Arbor down the road to Plymouth, Michigan.

Lately everything I have heard only reassures me that Lotus have no interest at all in delivering a new car which appeals to current Lotus owners. It makes sense... I get it... the money is elsewhere. I just hope that there is a short run Cup variant of these new cars which completely strips out the unnecessary bells and whistles to give us something to cling on to.

Uh-oh. Voice controls always work seamlessly, don’t they? 😬 

I hope they give it British accent recognition! Much to his girlfriends amusement, our son is always complaining that their  Alexa rarely understands his voice commands. 😂

Let's hope they'll include Scottish accent recognition as well, or @C8RKH might have some trouble. 😄

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Lol. I'm actually English and just trespassing in Scotland!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I know you know it wasn't personal at all. 😉
Just a great clip, no matter how many times I've seen it, it always cracks me up.

Can’t wait for this - I’m like a kid at Christmas right now! How many sleeps......?😉👍🎄

Fire Red no more I'm afraid. It's off the colour chart.

Is it.....?😪

Surprised as Type 131 would likely look fantastic in it, as by all accounts it’s looking like it could be a simplified Evija which looks great in Red. But having said that could Type 131 be available in Atomic Red....as pictured? Yes please 😎

If not it might be for the best as far I'm personally concerned, as I don’t think my future funds can stretch to the new car......having just bought an S1 Elise to add to the stable!😂
