You'll catch it a few days earlier. Press day is already on September 30th, and usually the press leaks some of the release beforehand.

Future Esprit - any new news?

We've all seen those drawings by magazines, and speculation about engines here or there. But this was a while back and doesn't mean anything.



Is there any new news about the next generation Esprit?

I remember seeing a picture of some slides presented at the last LOG (or some lotus event in the US) and it highlighted the planned similarities (reused parts) between the Evora and Esprit. I was suprised the [small] brakes were highlighted on this slide. I think there may have been some sort of time line given but now the Elite is in the picture, along with new management, that has probably all changed.

Thought I'd make use of this new subforum since the Esprit came up in the other thread
