I had posted this on the NobleForums some time ago, and thought you guys might find it interesting that Lee Noble's first creations included replicas of early Lotus cars. He had a high regard for Collin Chapman and his engineering/design ideology. I see much of the Lotus light weight and simplistic mentality in the Nobles, which have now progressed into Rossions. I just feel it's a shame that Lee doesn't stick around long enough to really take these cars to the next level and possibly forming a true racing team, but that's why we now have companies such as Ultima, Ascari and Rossion. There seems to be a relation between all these great design and engineering minds of the past and poor finance practices (not necessarily poor business practice, as there's a difference). Hence, the artists' (in this case, engineer) mind....

No... although the last iteration of Noble Cars, Ltd is off of his design, Lee Noble is no longer with Noble (man that just sounds awkward! :confused: ).

Not sure what his current whereabouts are, but I believe he's been contracted by another firm for design and engineering services.
