My *guess* is that they are doing an Exige revision at least in part because of the massive criticism about overweight cars. I can only hope they keep the old platform and just put in the V6. If...

I think people are talking about the motor with the existing body style. The issue is that the current motor is discontinued by Toyota.

I don't think there is any doubt that the "2015" (whenever...

Let me get this straight: you think the Esprit is bloated so you're buying an R8?

I can't figure out why they don't put the V6 in it. If MWR can do it, Lotus can too.

I have to believe the Exige/Elise sales volume would jump if it had 340 horsepower and a bunch of torque.

I will never part with over $40K on a car with any kind of automatic transmission. And that less-than-$40K car will be for my wife.

I don't care about the others, but that Elan needs to come with...

I see a lot of people ripping on them for being generic: They look too much like Lambos. They look too much the same.

Designing cars is *hard*. There are only so many tricks. They need to...

By way of introduction, I have been lurking awhile, track a 370Z about 6 times a year, am a once-proud owner of an AW11 MR2, and am looking to buy an Exige or Caterham CSR in the next 6-12 months. ...

Lotus strategy

I'm a bit curious about a few things Lotus has been up to lately, so I thought I'd engage in some rampant speculation and see if others have any speculation of their own.

I'm trying to figure...

That is a very, very nice car. I will be trying to get something I can drive on a daily basis though, so it's just not right for me. I also need six months for financial reasons.

Anyway, didn't...

The fact that you guys have figured out this install and are doing it around $20K is singlehandedly convincing me to get an Exige in six months. Part of what held me back before was the forced...

*That* is the most concise way of looking at the Elise that I've heard. Nice.

I will say that the elimination of manuals on the Elan and Esprit is a serious shame.

I think this move is actually key to *having* a dealer network. They have to show the dealers that there will be actual cars and excitement in the US.

And look, I want a 7. The next car I get...

Jeez. I realize only people complaining post on the internet, but you guys are a tough crowd.

1. Saying they will hit $55K on the Elise is pretty darned good. That's Boxster pricing. And it's...
