New 2011 Elise availability?

Well, the newest Elise has a pretty sweet front end. I can't seem to find the US release date for the car. Does anyone have that information?

Lotus USA and the dealers would like to first clear their lots of stale inventory, although over the last couple of years most of the new cars have been brought in on order only, so there really are not too many unsold new cars floating around out there, I would guess. Hard to sell these off the show room floor these days.

Contact a Lotus dealer and see if you can order one.

What, no Elise S? It would be very cool to have a sport car that gets 45mpg...

2011 BMW 128i cabrio, ///M Sport
2005 Elise in Racing Green with the touring pack (sold 8/6/12)

We will have the first 2011 Elise in the US in our dealership next week.

It is Ardent Red.

Seeing that not many dealers ordered 2010 models, I think dealers are trying to sell '09's instead

You're lucky, us west coast dealers have to wait til the boat passes the Gulf before unloading in Houston then railed to Long Beach before finally being trucked to San Diego. That's an additional 4-6 weeks wait time

Regarding your sold order, I think you'll start to see "most" dealers are now ordering for customers as oppose for stock which in the end bodes well for dealers, customers and Lotus.
