Yeah...nice looking, but I don't have the same reaction as I do with the prior styles (ALL of them). If I wanted an Exige, I'd buy one...

As a previous poster said, "Gallardo."

It's still a very clean yet aggressive design, and the Gallardo resemblance could probably be lessened by a bit of resculpting. The real question remains--how can Lotus become part of a larger, better-funded company, but one which will let it alone to do what Lotus does so well?

As Sergio has cheapened the Ferrari brand (lots of trinkets for sale, development of an SUV, ever-higher production volumes), I'd like to see Lotus move up the food chain. It would take years of sustained effort, but it seems it would be doable.

I hear an esprit is coming. It will be based off a shortened evora patform, ie lighter better turning, so figure maybe 2700lbs. It may have a lotus built V8. 2700lbs, 500hp, whats not to like, well maybe the price and styling.

I heard that too. It will be out right after the Evora roadster.
