this is good news, and a good final announcement at the end of the piston-heads article.

the new owners don't seem to be wasting any time repairing all the damage danny did.

maybe they'll go back to pumping out Eliges....since they are still tooled for those. Heck - Tesla could put out more rodsters...( he prays hopefully, knowing full well there isn't a chance in hell.)

Are you nuts? you'll have those 27 people that purchased the Final Editions suing Lotus for millions of dollars for emotional distress. I think Lotus latest, selling $100K Exige S is the best direction yet :rolleyes: on a serious note if Lotus stops production and just makes replacement parts charging as much as $6 for a bolt they could survive..


P.S. BTW stop blaming Danny for Lotus dimise, Lotus was long dead before he got there, he just precipitated the process Lol

At the bottom of the page of the second link, there are a list of related stories - one of them (No plan to sell off Lotus) says Proton was pumping 5-8 MILLION quid per WEEK to keep Lotus afloat, with the cash hemorrhage expected to last until 2014. That's about half a billion dollars a year.

That would mean that they are losing more money on every car than what they are charging for the list price...maybe as much as double. -eek-
