Well you can't say it hasn't been interesting

so far... while waiting for our cars.

How much longer?

#somethingwickedthiswaycomes... the new Origin Noble M and the Origin 7

Zenos E10S for Sale! www.zenosforsale.com

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

First batch...I'm still thinking the rumored May/June. I'm just hoping that the delivery rate doesn't drop down to a trickle like we're hearing.

Hmmm, why would the owner of this forum start this thread unless he is dying to let out a secret?

I had to wait almost 2 years for mine. I had more conversations, met more people, collected more magazine articles, and learned more about my car in that time than I would have believed possible. I told everyone that even if I never picked up my car, I had more fun in those 2 years than I had ever had with any other car in my life.

And then I did get to pick my car up The dealer thought I was an absolute nutter because I jumped around all over the place when I saw it for the first time because - YES - I had picked the right colour sight unseen, just like most of you guys.

Believe us, it only gets BETTER !! And BETTER. And then still BETTER.

Just 6 more months for me. It's already been 14 months since I put my deposit down.

I agree...

Conspiracy theory #432: Something is brewing! Perhaps Randy's almost utter lack of content and purpose in this thread somehow... speaks volumes?

Alternative theory to conspiracy theory #432: Our typically unflappable leader is beginning to crumble like the prospective Elise owner that he is, regressing to the mindset of a rank-and-file newbie, and posting the single-most-obvious of all the multitude of unanswerable questions one might ask.

I, for one, am confused!

Maybe the dealers will let us borrow the demos until we get our cars

It'll be when I'm in England. I'll be at the factory and get a call (gotta love GSM phones) right as I walk in to the factory saying my car is ready.

I'm hitting the Lotus "Scare yourself Sensible" event, should be fun. Maybe I'll get the call when I'm on the track.

Remember to pull over before answering your phone.
