    Default Lotus Emira

    Surprised nobody posted this yet.

    Lotus Emira to be released for next year. Looks pretty neat I'd say, decent price point

    Thoughts?

    Over 100k for something that is as quick as a Golf R.

    Pass, even if it looks nice.

    I feel like if it has the AMG 2L the fast as a golf R is severely sandbagged.

    Gorgeous. And, if human-sized people for into it, I'm a fan. I can't get the door closed in my friend's old Esprit Turbo, let alone get sardined enough to drive it. That's silly.

    As I told one of my friends today, this is high end cayman territory.

    Like a 400hp NA GTS spec cayman…

    Also, a base 911 will be the same price. Yeah you have to be a big AMG or Lotus fan.

    I do like the looks.

    Beautiful car - looks amazing in yellow. Very happy that they kept the hydrualic steering and manual gearbox. Same wheelbase as the outgoing Evora and around the same weight.

    Hell ya!

    I love it. This is the car I've been asking for someone to build for ages. Too bad they're doing this on the cusp of the boring-ass EV revolution.

    Basically, not gonna happen - but imagine if they married the manual to the AMG motor.

    Looks sexy. Price point is a lot of shmeckles, but it's not like Lotus ever had a car priced in line with the competition, lol.

    Stunning car. Looks better than most exotics. The AMG engine and DCT would be the version to get IMO.

    From weight to initial powertrain, isn't this just a reskinned Evora?

    I never like the Evora, but this looks good.

    I could almost be interested.................................. to buy one in 3 years for the price of a Camry

    The Evora is great, everyone who drives it loves it. I just wish they hadn't compromised the design by trying to fit seats in the back. This looks 1000x better.

    Yeah, after the videos and reading about it, it's nothing like Evora.

    Very 458/488 ish.

    Incredible looking car IMO, the nicest 'exotic' I have seen in a while to my eye. Always been a big fan of Lotus.

    I would own the shit out of this car if I had somewhere to put it.

    It's the same platform as the Evora though, right? I read it has same wheelbase length (like exactly, to the 0.1").
