The credible rumor is that the US Elise will be visually very, very similar to the S2. I doubt a new body style would come out any time soon, Lotus doesn't have much money for R&D. More likely is for a new, Elise-based Esprit to be introduced in a couple years, followed by a new Elise a couple years after that.burburlulu said:I am confused
So will it be a complete brand new front end design more like an S3 or just a facelift like a S2.5?
if the one coming to the US is S2.5 when will the S3 come out? since the S1 only last for 5 years
I still think it'll have a Toyota V6 with TRD supercharger. I wouldn't mind a longer wheelbase, assuming Lotus does their homework and maintains the handling dynamics of the S2 (with wider front tires to get rid of that understeer I hear about).LarryB said:One rumor I've heard is we'll get a slightly longer wheel-based version of the current S2. I believe it's a short-wheel based version of what the new Esprit will use. Styling wise like the S2. If it means a larger engine bay, wonder about a larger displacement motor off the bat or a few years down the road.
