I wonder if we can get one thread where we pull together all the concrete info that people have got from dealers on their delivery. That way those of us still struggling to get hold of information can see what other people are getting from their dealers.

This information have been apparently given to the dealers over the last 2 weeks. If you've already posted this info somewhere else, please post it again here.

Please, only post if you have been given information by your dealer on the delivery of your individual car. (not "well they said 3 cars a month and I'm spot 8 so...").

If you post, please list the following:

Dealer
Spot Number
LSS or not
Color
Estimated Delivery Date

Thanks.

It might also be of value for people to state the size of the dealership.

Dealer: Valenti (CT)
Spot Number: #8 customer car
LSS or not: Touring pac & hardtop
Color: Storm Ti/Red
Estimated Delivery Date: September "build," Sept/Oct delivery

This is from a conversation 2 days ago with Bill at Valenti, who is a nice guy and has been very straight with me. I'm not happy about being pushed into a fall/winter delivery here in New England ... will get little to no use of the car for 6 months after delivery. But that not the dealer's fault. Steve

Well, sort of.

St. Louis
#2 customer car
no LSS
Bordeaux
Est: ???

Sales manager assured me that the demo, and #1 customer car were in port, with delivery July 15th. Mine? "Dunno". GAAAARRR! SOOOOoooooo close.

He did, however, confirm the placement of the 3M at the port, and took my order for that.

told delivery will be aug/sept

that they are expecting thier demo to be shown on a special unvieling across the entire Lotus network on July 15 even if they recieve cars earlier they are not to be sold or displayed or test driven:( till that date or date given by Lotus if earlier, Lotus doesnt want cars on the east coast delivered before dealers on the west coast get thiers.

I find the phrases "concrete information" and "Lotus Elise"
do not fit well together.

I put down two deposits.
I ordered one car
I will get it someday (maybe)
