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.

Having spoken to a few of the long time Lotus guys still at Hethal i can confirm my LOVE for Lotus is back on the straight and narrow, Jaguars/McLarens are not for me!  I just need to have more p

Selling 6 cars instead of 5 in China would be a 20% increase. There really is nothing to celebrate at this moment in time beyond Lotus's survival but hopefully it will start to make some kind of sense

Maybe, time will tell. I am starting to think that I am out of kilter with the majority (nothing new there I suppose) but all this talk of electric, luxury, etc and I can't help but feel we are going

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!

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.

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.

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!

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?

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:

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!

Just a great clip, no matter how many times I've seen it, it always cracks me up.
