Fiat buying Lotus... won't happen :( Any company that buys Lotus will be a company determined to increase its image as a performance automaker by association. (Toyota...)

Glass doesn't belong on cars anyway. Too much weight. Drivers should look into a giant LCD screen hooked up to a platoon of ChaseCams mounted in the front and peripherals of the vehicle.

Perfect...

I see their strategy. They have to rebuild their reputation among Americans, many of whom have no idea what Alfa Romeo is (conjecture). They have the unique ability to start at the top (halo cars)...

2600 lbs... Ok, so all we have to do is find out what the hell they removed from this car and remove only half of it to have a comfortable, light-weight Evora :p

Yes I do want one.

My only concern at this point...

Will it be sold at Ferrari/Maserati dealerships? I'm not sure that appeals to me.

Exactly... It's a no win situation even if you do win. Better to be precautionary about what kinds of mods you do or be willing to face warranty claim denial otherwise.

Fortunately, Eliges are...
