Really??? Is this back to being alive again?
The thread? Yes apparently resurrected from the dead...

The car... no.

I actually got to see and sit in these concept cars in the Lots Design Studio back in May 2011! I really liked the Elan, Eterne, Elite, and Esprit. The Interiors were really nice too.

Looks like a very similar if not exactly the same chassis as the Tesla Model S with the design being the way it is
Given the association between Tesla and Lotus it is quite possible that the cahssis design, or even the engineering design behind it, were re-used for the Tesla S rather than starting from scratch... interesting though :)

we had a tesla S full scale styling buck, very resolved... in our gallery long before the Eterne showed up. if there was any copying going on it was the Tesla (holhauzen), that was copied (inspired, leveraged, borrowed). 95% of Tesla s styling was done before the externe concept ever existed.
