Sorry but no chance, at least for the majority of people with the right sized wallets.
I'm afraid that Lotus has an unkillable "reputation" for poor build quality & reliability.
Reputations take ages to die unfortunately.
The Germanic alternatives have, on the other hand, excellent reputations.
For those in the market for a car at that sort of money, those are not just important but deciding factors.
I'd like the Evora as a nice toy, which no doubt it will be for those with a few pence left over at the end of the month.
However it's sales figures, Press feedback & owner satisfaction that do the counting at the end of the day.
IMHO the Elise / Exige range of cars is the type of sports car where Lotus has always excelled (no pun intended)
They were a brilliant technological breakthrough in these days of laws & regulations.
The sales success of those cars says that Lotus did it right, at last.
All of their wedgy up market cars left me cold; well apart from the Esprit but that car was also very expensive in it's time (& not without it's problems!!).
The Esprit was also intended to be a Porsche chaser.
Lotus must surely know, from past experience, that small, highly effective sports cars is what they're brilliant at, but cars for (B)-ankers in Whapping Wharf is not what they're good at. Leave that to Porsche, Mercedes, Audi & to say the least bloody BMW. (Yes I do bear a bit of a grudge there Laughing )

My two penneth for what it's worth Sad

Cheers
John
