I’m one of those old-school Lotus fans who thinks that Dany Bahar is pissing on everything that the brand formerly stood for. I bought my Lotus in 1973 and have a great deal of respect for Colin Chapman’s role in automotive history. While Chapman would have relished going head to head with Ferrari on the road as well as on the track, and while he had no objection to luxurious cars – Chapman era Loti always had a bit of luxury about the way the cares were trimmed, a V8 powered 4 door sedan was on the Lotus drawing boards when Chapman died suddenly, and he used a big 450 S Mercedes as his personal car – he wouldn’t have been happy about making Lotus cars heavier. Still, the Evora is a fabulous car and while it’s not the minimalist sports car that the Elise has been, I challenge any old school Lotus fan to tell me that he or she wouldn’t want to have an Evora in their garage.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
