I haven't been called. I hope once my turn rolls around (42 @ Valenti) I get to order the car we have all been awaiting, not a lifted, big bumper, revised headlight half sister to the elise.
You guys that are not in the first batch can rest easy in the knowledge that you will not be sliding around in your seat like us in the first batch. You can sit tight instead of just loosely slipping aboutVantage said:It is my understanding that Lotus took such a large second order as to get a better idea on what kind of materials they need to be ordering, etc. Those last few cars (25-30) will not be built for quite a long time, so I don't see a reason why the next batch of cars need to be ordered until cars are actually starting to be delivered. It will take some months to ramp up to full production as well, so even the second batch people have a bit of a wait ahead.
Just being realistic here. I think everyone except for those in the first 10 ought to just sit tight.
Excepting, of course, that typically it's only the "major metropolitan areas" that have dealerships to begin with and that a significant portion of their orders will live 100-500 miles away from the dealership.MitchT said:plus I think that LOC will place more units in major metropolitian areas as demographics dictate, this is just business nothing against smaller locations, but it stands to reason, that these guy need the exposure of the real cars beeing seen, driven, and maybe heard by the intended audience.
