Very excited, but at the same time, 2020 is so far away I doubt Lotus is very far into the design process. Development budget is a big question. Imagine if the money Bahar raised was used to develop a few real cars instead of vaporware. So let's see.
I would gladly accept a 200 .lbs increase if the car had 300 hp and wider tires. It seems VERY hard to meet all the regulations and keep the car as light as the current model.
