You guys need to understand that's not necessarily the way the production car is going to look, it's a concept.

You're not allowed to do that. That would be false advertising and fraud.

I guess if Porsche can get away with it... with the Boxster, Cayman, Carrera and Turbo Variants sharing more than 50% of each others parts (and the exact same front end) why cant Lotus do it. Its actually how Porsche made themselves the most profitable car company.
