I like Lotus but why does it have a bad stigma now?
So I was reading the latest car magazine (don't remember which), and there was a cover story about one of the Aerosmith's guys' Hennessey Venom GT Roadster.
Anyways, it was a great review and it listed the pros and cons of the Venom. Under cons, it said "being asked, 'is that a Lotus?'"
I know if it was a Porsche, Lambo, Mercedes, or Ferrari review, they would never have something similar.
It feels that con, can be easily be used for a Hyundai, Kia, etc.
So why the hate now? I remember reading old magazine articles, where they did tests comparing an Esprit to a Ferrari 348 and Porsches, which was quite common back in the 90's.
