When I was growing up, someone like that was called a "squirrel."

As the 2005 thread sez, Andy Barron is the person who bought the REAL M90/X100 prototype and has given it a loving restoration...and it is/will be street-worthy.

This car (and owner) is a pretender and someone should rip off the badges and stickers and...oh, sorry, let it get away from me.

westlakeman Don't laugh...the guy really walks around telling people that we owns a "Lotus".

I though that I had to share this with you guys.

Owning a Lotus is a spiritual passage...you just can't fake it.

westlakeman It looks like you guys have seen this car before....

Out of a 10 what number would you give it as far as "creativity"?

Also...is there any chance that anything on this car is actually from "Lotus" (besides the terrible badging)?

LarryB It's a Toyota MR2 MarkI( I still own my MkII). It has the same motor as the X100 and based on the following:

Toyota MR2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There maybe a loose family line. But no it is not the concept car.

Lotus X100 concept car in Westlake Village

A co-worker is stating that this car is actually a Lotus x100 concept car. I believe that it's a Toyota MRII that has just been re-badged. I'm almost 100% certain but I'm not an expert. I'm assuming that you guys would know...please rip it apart for me. THX.
