Hey guys, does anybody know the full list of Lotus cars that were ever available for sale in the US?

Obviously:

Evora
Exige
Elise
Esprit
Elan
Europa

Do I have that right and were there any others?

It gets fuzzy with the gray market, too. There are some 340Rs that were sold here new under some exemption. The M100 Elan is different enough from the Elan, that it can be added to that list.

Were the Elite and Eclat available here when new? They are now though that 25 years have passed.

I think every car Lotus made up to the S1 Elise was available in the US. There may have been some versions not available, but otherwise we got everything until 1996.

After posting I remembered the Lotus Carlton and the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus not available here.

Probably easier to list the cars not available here vs cars that were available.
