Is it April 1 again? Why not bump it to 450 hp, and raise the price to $225k?
They will absolutely sell 15-20 cars at this price - and then the discounting will start. A number of folks on this board have been talking about getting $100k 400s for $85k. Some claimed to get $90k Evora S's for $65-70. There are still Evora S's out there, brand new (if dealer websites are to be believed), so they couldn't sell 1,216 cars in 5 model years. There are plenty of '17 400's around, and model year '19 cars are already showing up from some manufacturers.
This isn't a hate rant, since I'm an owner too, but Lotus seems to always be a car or two behind the market - which is great for me, from a price standpoint, but you do have to wonder. And, really, how long until the 430 is replaced by the 440, or the 450, or Geely brings out a whole new car?
