Lotus is, and has been, one of our favorite manufacturers for a long time. Keeping focused on lightweight and driver feel, the company has been successful in building a few dedicated cars. This year, Lotus had announced that they would be producing more cars and planning to cut into more market share. Some like it and some don’t. Some think that Lotus should stay a small company making cars that weigh in less than 2000 lbs. Others, like us, don’t care as long as they make them look great and perform better than anything out there!
So what did Lotus show us in Paris? Not just one or two new cars, but a total of five! Five new cars from Lotus in one year is an amazing feat. The design and direction used in all these cars doesn’t ring back to traditional Lotus, but they look fantastic! They are all using modern and updated powertrains from Toyota and the best the auto world has to offer in 2011.
