Well actually, I've only seen tunes for model years up to 2007. And I've heard for some reason there might be a delay/issue developing one for the 2008+ cars. And I just wanted to see if anyone had more information on this.
Search for "black dash tune." It's because in 2008, Lotus switched to faster CANbus speeds and a slightly different protocol for the new black dashboard.

When they did that they also substantially changed other parts of firmware on the ECU, so the work done for reverse engineering the pre-'08 cars has to be redone for the post-'08 ones.

hackish and Phil (Fastworks + BOE) say they're working on a "black dash" tune but their release date has slipped several times now and I don't think they're giving estimates anymore (such is software...)
