    I'll probably be in the minority, but not a fan. I was more into the new concepts they were showing last year.

    I couldn't get anywhere near the Lotus stand on Saturday. Pity.

    I for one am glad Lotus have stayed with their tried-and-tested look. Now put a plug on it.

    I wonder what type of chassis it's built on?

    Yeah, the Evora design was definitely influenced by the Roadster.

    IMHO the Elise was over the top; the Tesla design looks sexy and exotic without being so gaudy. Evidently the Lotus people thought so too.
