I read an article recently that said Morgan was enjoying its best year ever, as sales of its three-wheeler have taken off (remember this is Morgan so everything is relative in terms of size), but what caught my eye was the fact that they can't sell either the Aero or their classic models in the US because of the two-stage airbag issue. McLaren and other small-volume producers have solved this. Given the smarts of the Lotus engineers, and at least some financial backing from DRB Hicom, and the size of the US market, is it really conceivable that they can't figure this out? Put somebody else's seats and airbag modules in the d_mn car and bring it over! I know I am oversimplifying this, but still. Isn't their some Ford/Honda/Vauxhall parts that can be smushed in there somehow? It's not exactly like the current Elige interiors are ergonomic works of art. And, a little more weight versus the V6 would seem to be a pretty reasonable sacrifice. I think a lot of us would be willing to get a new Lotus, but a) you can't now except for an Evora - and I want a removable top; and b) why would you have in the past, when there was almost no difference between a 2005 and a 2011? A new engine would be a definite motivator for me.
