Lotus

At the Paris motor show Lotus unveiled five new cars
LOTUS ESPRIT
LOTUS ELAN
LOTUS ELISE
LOTUS ELITE
LOTUS ETERNE
I wanted to get people opinion on them, I like them but they do look similar. Out of them all a like the Lotus asprit because I think it looks the best out of them all and it is the fastest. I think it was time for lotus to make a car to rival Ferrari

I may like them, mostly the Elan and Esprit. On the other hand, I'm done wondering about concept cars.

While in full honesty I agree with the majority here, I'll try and stick out a branch of peace for thebrochureman.

I understand the idea of combining the thoughts we have on the new Lotus' or whatever the plural for Lotus is. It makes sense in a way. However, we already did discuss it. Sorry mate - but the idea behind this thread is a bit redundant, in other words, given we have discussed each of the new cars already.

However, don't stop posting - we at this forum tend to be very against the idea of re-discussing an idea. Not that I disagree, given I have a very short patience for repetition, but you seem like a smart guy - at least smarter than myself when I first joined! Don't get discouraged, and just remember what is essentially two rules:
1) Ask yourself if an idea has already been presented, when creating a new thread, and
2) Give us your opinion! Assuming you aren't re-iterating an opinion someone else had posted about several years ago in a now-dead-thread, then honestly I, at the very least, want to know.

Don't get discouraged from posting - just take a few seconds to think before you hit the "post" or "create thread" button, is it a new idea, or just an amalgamation of ideas or an old idea, that you are putting forth - Hell, I still suck at it and I've been here a decent while

weights going up all round

inevitable with the ncap requirements

the new 2 seat 3.8L v8 mclaren is going to be 1300 kg despite an unbelieveably light passenger tub & engine

they are making a mistake with the so-similar styling between the models . 5 versions of futuristic wedge that lack class
