I noticed that last march (I think) lotus sought a 2 year extension to comply with a smart air bag requirement. DOT gave them one year, which expires in a couple months. Lotus argued that it would be very expensive to comply (millions of dollars for relatively few sales).

I also noticed that the elise isn't imported anymore for the same or similiar
reason. Is that the future of the evora too? a few years imports and then they can't get them in anymore because of overstringent regulations.

I also wonder if that's one of the reasons many dealers are bailing on the brand.
thoughts? it hasn't seemed to effect the prices of the elises. If anyhing maybe they hold their value more since there no more new ones, at least until the next gen.
