Apparently you havent been following the most current issues with Lotus to know all Exige production has been idled. It has been this way for over a month now which has caused a lot of uncertainty about the future state of business. As it stands right now, not 1 single customer ordered Exige V6 has been delivered. Deposits with dealers are being held up as continuous releases from Lotus delay the delays. This is all due to a lack of parts given the breakdown in relations with suppliers over payments not recieved and Lotus most recent request for an extension to pay its taxes due. In addition, current Proton/ Lotus owners , DRB Hicom, have not recieved approval or sign off from their inveatora for its new plan for Lotus.
It is unlikely; no it isnt even realistic or possible that you will get an Exige in December. There are hundreds of orders ahead of yours with customers who have waited over a year (not to mention in higher priority markets where Lotus actively sell the car in).
If production did magically resume today, it realisticaly wouldnt be until May the car could be delivered. You have eigher been misled or lied to. Good luck with that order.
Thank you for the words of wisdom, but Lotus is not closing the doors and the 2013 cars have started to show up in our dealerships so the Exiges will show up sooner or later.
