i'd had my fingers crossed, which makes it hard to type.


I'd do it but it means dropping the fuel tank, which is a PITA.

Black Exige S / Elan M100. Don't run a smaller pulley without an upgraded fuel pump! http://www.goth.am ecu stuff.. New reflash box coming soon!

Just tell me that the above release dates for MY'09s is a typo and I can stop being disappointed! But, if the MY09's are not out until the end of '09 or beginning of '10, then what Exige S will be available before that during '09, a continuation of the S240's? I guess that is good for stabilizing the pricing '08 S240's.

Damn! I was counting on an S260 in early 2009 - there is no way I want to wait until the end of '09.
Looks like Charliex may get a new customer!

I am guessing no a/c, no radio and speakers, no carpet, no extra sound insulation, no cup holder, but maybe with Cup Car wheels and I/C. Don't know what else they could do?

Oops! Sorry about that...haven't looked at this thread for a while and didn't see the typo.

MY09 cars are said to arrive by late December of '08 the earliest but realistically, I don't see them coming until January and maybe even February of 2009.

With the exception of the Exige S220, the only changes to MY09 cars will be pricing as base price will go up a few hundred dollars. In addition to current models, Lotus will come out with an Exige S260 in both Cup Car and street legal versions and is said to weigh a couple hundred pounds less than the current Exige models....something about fuel tank and carbon bits.


Hope this helps, thanks


Abe
are the "fuel tank and carbon bits" going to be available for purchase to your loyal customers?

Dude, there's my car!

So, if I'm reading this correctly:

Exige S 220hp: no price change
Exige S 240hp: price increase
Exge S 260hp: Higher price

That's great that Lotus is offering different levels at different price points.

2005 Lotus Elise- SOLD 6/9/07
2011 Lotus Evora - SOLD 4/18/13
2011 Lotus Evora S - SOLD - 10/7/14
2014 Lotus Evora S IPS - SOLD 2/13/16
2016 Something else in red

Hopefully your car will get here before those pieces are available!!! Maybe just before your new movie is coming out "Dude, Where's My Lotus?" Seriously, when, when, when??? I wanna see pics from Hawaii!

I might just win the race we were in that you did not know about. Mine has been confirmed picked up and is being trucked to my house as we speak. ETA Thursday! Just FYI, anything can happen but in my situation they cashed my check almost a week before it was at the dealer (somehow the transport from port to dealer was delayed), it was then shipped out to me a day after it arrived at the dealer.

I didnt write the check till they had the car... dont know if they got it yet
Edit: so apparently the car has left the dealership already... dont know when it happened tho... I guess my bank is just slow processing the check do to its size

can you look at the vins to see which car was made first? I would be interested to know which one of our cars went down the line first

Dude, there's my car!

Great update thanks!! We hope that the S260 Street is a reality. I think last year news and pricing of the new models came out in mid November after the LA Car show, which is only 3 months away

Will the S260 possibly break the 80K barrier? That would be scary.

Lance, Gotham tune!!! My local dealership here has no problem with them
