Looks like Lotus overestimated it's car again. Lotus claims this car can do 0-100 in 3.6 s yet Sport Auto managed to do inly 4.2 s. Lotus has also overestimated the power of this car, Sport Auto dynoed only 343 PS instead of 380.

If they actually expanded there model range to more then just track toys, They would be doing a lot better

So true. And hence why Toyota is worth 15-20x as much as Ferrari :). And Ferrari is already the most lucky most well off sports car manufacturer.

They had a concept suv a few years back, But other then that it's just lightweight cars for the track, If they just made a normal coupe, Saloon and maybe a hatchback for your average working person they wouldn't be hurting as much. I'm fine with lightweight, But in this day n age, 3400lbs is light, If they keep going like this, I don't see them lasting too much longer

Lack of funds = Lack of development
(Hopefully new Elise by 2020)

Unfortunately ex CEO Dany Bahar spent millions of dollars developing a whole fleet of cars (4 if I remember correctly). However, the problem being that Lotus didn't have any funds... However the Evora 400 being released in the US has enabled Lotus to make profit for the first time in years!

Either way the way there going, Simple toys for the track isn't gonna cut it, The Evora is the closest thing to a normal car they have, And even that's an Elise under, They have had the same 1 car for years, Just different variations. If they expanded there lineup, A coupe, Saloon, Maybe a hatch and a wagon or something, They could make a big name for themselves and actually have rivals and much more profits, and as a British company it must take heed, English manufactures are the most abundant in the planet, and also the most to go bust.

Funds-deprived Lotus still iterating on the aging Mk III platform.

Very true. Its a shame that the lack of funds means slow development, but hopefully the new Elise in 2020 will be a step up!
