interesting quote...

And several additional products are in the works. That includes the Exige, a replacement for the aging Esprit. Currently, plans call for the new sports car to be sold only in Europe, but Hale confides it "certainly is poised for the U.S.," as well.
looks like i'll be swapping my elise for an exige.

thanks for the link, 420!

I don't know how "the Duke" Hale figures to sell 10,000 Lotus in the US a year in the future!!
CHris:D
A Gallardo/Modena
type Esprit, as shown in artist sketches in
R&T's April issue, could account for part of his projected 'by 2009-2010' amount since the car would be priced about $40,000 to $50,000 less than a Gallardo while looking like one. Let's say 250 cars.
That leaves 9,750 yearly to be broken up between Elise, Exige.....and maybe a M-250. Can't see less than a three-car line-up to have a chance at those numbers he mentioned.
