Yet another take on Phil Popham's comments

https://www.thedrive.com/news/27086/...tric-lotus-suv

This one seems to mix timelines a bit:

Older - "So what does this venerable producer of lightweight, road-adherent sports cars have up its cylinder sleeve? Well, for starters, not much. 'The next car we will announce is a new GT version of the Evora. It will be more powerful, and with more features. That will be the immediate offering,' says Popham."

Newer - "More fizzle than sizzle, but if you look beyond that into the pipeline, things start to get interesting. There are rumors of a seven-figure electric hypercar, but the only confirmation Popham would provide was that of an all-new sports car. 'You’re likely to see something toward the end of next year,' he says. 'It won’t go on sale until after that, maybe the following year or so, but this is going to be more a volume product.' He promises that it will 'still absolutely still have the DNA of Lotus—handling, lightweight, on-road dynamics,' but he predicts that it will appeal to a greater number of people because it will address 'the hygiene factors the brand has been deficient in, in terms of things like space, ergonomics, and technology.' This car will start in the same price range that the Evora occupies right now, and go up from there. Meaning, escalating to above $100K, or right in the territory of the Porsche 911. So, not a value proposition."

By the release date - sometime after the end of next year? - won't the other new updated models be available?
