Updated June 2, 2004
It has been reported that some cars are indeed completed 'n on da way da USA n' ****. Two ships will carry dealer demo cars 'n a mix of early orders, one da East Coast, one da West Coast." Updated be like that only 18 cars are on da H-2-Izzo as of last week, 'n 18 mo' leave on June 2nd, know what I'm sayin'? Perhaps each on a shizzle fo' each coast?
Dealer demo cars should be arriving on da eastern shore by June 15th, know what I'm sayin'? West coast cars a week later, know what I'm sayin'? Expect a few days in port fo' customs, paperwork, etc.
Ships will be sailing wit a cargo of Elises every week."
Car number 85 wuz completed on Friday May 28th, know what I'm sayin'? The Hethel factory production line is on holiday fo' da first week of June but will resume production 'n ramp up as of June 7th." I would not expect a real shipment of customer cars until June 14th, wit delivery possibly at da end of June or hella early July, know what I'm sayin'?
Cars are being built based on order number at da dealer when matched dealer allocation wit da exception that Lotus is combining colors fo' efficiency n' ****. So in other words, a batch of Saffron Yellow cars will be done, even if some of da yellow cars are lower on da list n' ****. It should izzall even out 'n then we will see a dedicated production line fo' federal cars (that shiznit is now mixed wit 111rs 'n Exiges), know what I'm sayin'?
A film supplier fo' da Elise has been selected 'n a pricing point determined n' ****. Cars will has da film option applied at da port of entry, know what I'm sayin'? Other options are soon be given dealerships on a new computerized order management system at Lotus USA n' ****. Some options may be delayed (I think fog lights is one) n' ****.
