Current Lotuses are too small for tall people like me,1.72m.

They are building bigger cars.

Wonder if they price it competitively when selling here. grin.gif

Lotus to Introduce 2 New Sports Cars and an SUV, CEO Says  

 

http://www.thedrive....cars-and-an-suv

 

Lotus has announced that it plans to introduce two new sports car models in 2020, followed by, of all things, an SUV. These will be the first new models Lotus has introduced since the Evora in 2009 and since Zhejiang Geely Holding Group bought the company last year, reports Automotive News.

Lotus CEO and super-speeder Jean-Marc Gales didn't give many details about the new cars, though he did say that one of them would replace an existing model. An updated version of an existing platform will be used for one of the new cars as well. The other will be built around an all-new carbon fiber tub like some top-end supercars. It will be similar to the Lotus 3-Eleven track-only car, but remain road legal. Both new sports vehicles will be built at Lotus's United Kingdom factory.

Lotus has stated for years that it would like to increase sales to 3,000 cars per year. Last year Lotus only sold 1,600 cars, though that was still an increase from 2016. Gales predicts that with the addition of an SUV, sales could exceed 10,000 per year.

But let's talk about the elephant in the room—a Lotus SUV. An SUV is the antithesis of Lotus founder Colin Chapman's philosophy of "simplify and add lightness." Snowfall totals of 6 to 8 inches are expected in hell the day the Lotus SUV debuts. However, one other former manufacturer of solely sports cars has already gone down this road—Porsche. Fifteen years ago, Porsche introduced the Cayenne, the first vehicle that isn't a sports car that Porsche had ever made (yes, the 914 was still a sports car, not a VW Beetle with high aspirations). Since then it's become Porsche's most popular and successful vehicle, enabling the brand to keep building the sports cars we love.

So while Colin Chapman may be rolling in his grave at the idea of a Lotus SUV, there's a strong argument that such a vehicle is necessary for Lotus to survive. Considering its intended lineup of one SUV and five sports cars, it doesn't seem like Lotus is forgetting about its roots—much.

 

Let's hope one of the new sports car is the new Espirit.

Guys, please stay away from PUBLIC AUTO WORLD CAR DEALER. They are trying very hard to sell the yellow Lotus EXIGE S 240 GP CUP 1.8 which was a stolen car and claimed total loss to insurance company.
 
We were promised with accident free and tip top condition of the car before paying the deposit. Couple of days before the car was supposed to be handed over, we found out from several blogs on the particular Lotus Exige that it was a stolen car. For more details, please refer to:
 
 
 
Extract from the blog:
"this Exige that Public Auto Sdn Bhd advertised as the perfect ride maintained in tip-top condition by its owner, was technically un-true. This was a stolen car that was a total loss to the insurance company; and thereafter sold vide an auction to the highest bidder whom would then repair and resell the car. The used car dealer probably paid not more than RM60k for the car."
 
With the chassis number and other details we had on hand, we contacted Lotus Malaysia to verify the information mentioned in the blog. True enough, we understand from the Manager of Lotus Malaysia that the Exige met an accident and flipped in 2013/2014. The car was declared total loss and stored in Lotus warehouse. In 2015, Liberty (insurance Co) paid for the storage charges and towed the car to Meg-Techs Sdn Bhd.
 
The car subsequently went under the ownership of someone else and was reported stolen on 21 Feb 2017 but recovered on 16 Apr 2017. There is a police report on this.
 
DETAILS OF THE EXIGE:
Model : Lotus Exige S240
Colour: Yellow
Carplate : WC4917B
Chassis : SCCLHHWCXAHC10521
 
We attempted to claim back our deposit from the unscrupulous PUBLIC AUTO WORLD CAR DEALER but they have yet to revert and gave us all sorts of nonsense excuses. They insisted to charge us RM3,000 of processing fee and will only refund us the remaining balance.
 
The car is now back on sale again with a lower price to entice buyers:
 
 
PLEASE BE AWARE AND SHARE THIS AROUND
