    LOTUS ELAN
    LOTUS ELISE
    LOTUS ELITE
    LOTUS ETERNE

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

    my guess is he thinks its only the polls we dislike about his threads, so he left it out.

    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
