I was thinking of driving to Gwinnett, GA from my home in Athens to confirm this, but I thought I would ask you all first.

Anyways, so last night I was at a friends house when her father pulled up in a new RX-8. We were talking about his car and he said that he heard I was getting a Lotus. He said he saw a Lotus dealer in Gwinnett - near the infinity dealer and there was a red Elise parked out front. He claimed there was not many cars at all there; possibly 1 Esprit. He also said that he talked to a salesman and that the salesman told him that orders could be placed at this dealer.

Of course my jaw dropped because I thought there was only 1 Lotus dealer in GA - Lotus of Atlanta. So I started spewing out questions and he couldn't really answer any of them.

Do any of you guys know about this dealer? Is it the new Lotus Headquarters that I have heard you talking about - and not an actual dealer? If this is a dealer, are the allocations going to be split with LOA? Is that a federal spec car there? Is it one of the demos? Hopefully some of you know about this place - and I hope I shouldn't be worried about my allocation.

Whit,
The new Lotus USA facility is still in Lawrenceville off 316, that could be where he was. I certainly haven't heard talk of a second dealer.

Paul Spruell is the dealer in Lawerenceville, GA. I don't know if he taking deposits or not. Last summer I saw an elise near the North Ga Premium Outlets (hwy 400 and 53). I caught up to the 2 young guys driving and gave them the thumps up. I called Paul Spruell and they told me it was a demo and probable one of his kids driving the elise. The only dealer I know of is Lotus of Atlanta on Roswell Road, also known as The Bimmer Store. I think Mr. Spruell might have sold his interest to Lotus of Atlanta. If we have another dealer taking deposits let me know. Current leasee of an 180TTRoadster.

Yeah, what's the story on him? I almost put my deposit with him.... I'm glad I didn't.
