  1. Excellent article. So good it needs listing on here twice?
  2. Lotus have a pedigree in producing low weight per performance, high maintenance, edgy design and therefore reliability issues compared to their contemporaries. Owning an old one is always going to be challenging, they don't improve with age. Modern Lotus are not much better unfortunately, even though they should be by now.
  3. Personal choice as always, but for me the stripes on the 410 break the natural line of the Evora. On the other hand that grey one suits the stripes.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/305149178356?hash=item470c4ef1f4:g:e4IAAOSwPtFlCtGy&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAA4KMSU5b7XwaVRhnc5G%2Fs9wt2HYoL%2BNhndvnaXdMTGEZzpGcSkK7IYIarx7u5%2BJu%2F4w1jP8CpXnYoEGeq4osl1XgPHB9SJxb9g2XUKcNRqNJYPF%2B6%2Fbki8h6hIhnWgwNHODB6ljFFcEbKLwb%2BoClB4W0ParIxNLkh9yLj9CY%2BANk5lgDE5nSGnFAbyvrw%2B5KjX1JrLkNSa%2FscIui%2FkPf4%2Fv%2FeaAlgUcFKbKHqwlcsH8uTzze5DxDCEb%2BiiOQpfybRoMi%2BGW9bWOP2kSoYrOisBUrT2IaGsmqqKI0WqWZcUiKg|tkp%3ABk9SR4zp-ZqsYw Is this it? Or get some mesh from local DIY store and make one up?
  5. If you are half handy, get the under tray off, clean everything in site from top to bottom and then wait for the new drip to appear. You can then hopefully see where it’s coming from before paying anyone to fix it.
  6. Unusual failure. Located on the end of the driveshafts usually. Quite where on the Evora I’ve never had to investigate.
  7. Sports car manufacturer Lotus has announced job cuts across its two factories in Norfolk as it moves towards electric-only production. The business said it was primarily "reducing agency workers" but that a "reduction of up to" 30 permanent UK-based roles was also being proposed. Lotus Cars posted significant financial losses in its most recent accounts. Lotus Cars made a loss before tax of £145.1m in the 2022 calendar year, versus a deficit of £86.6m in 2021. Only in 2021 it announced £100m in investment for the Hethel base, before, in 2023, revealing the "loss of up to 200 jobs". Lotus sold 576 vehicles during 2022, compared with 1,566 in 2021. Did this appear once and has been removed?

It doesn't matter which way you cut it, this is not good news.
  9. The really sad thing is that I have been buying Lotus cars since 1973. The latest woes are just Lotus continuing to be Lotus. Who owns or funds Lotus doesn’t seem to have changed anything over the years.
  10. Storing them in dealer showrooms instead of the factory car park?
