    i think the lotus is spectacular looking. i understand lotus wanting light weight but this might be a little too small for a hypercar. i can see elise dna in the design too. only hope c8 has styling like this

    Agreed - I think it looks like ****.

    Disappointing from Lotus.

    Agreed. Based on what I've seen, the C8 DOES look like a Corvette. The Lotus...looks like a "generic exotic", as you said.

    You’ve seen the final car without the camo?

    Incredible how you had such an opportunity to view it before the general public.

    I agree. Too puffy, nothing says lotus about it to me except the badge. Looks Chinese.

    Very excited for tomorrow. More excited for the hyper variants in the years to come.

    Yeah. It has some strokes of genius to it to then lose them to being too busy in some areas and too bland in others.

    Drove a 2013 convertible 427 today. Not bad and the engine is very tractable, not the sledge hammer I was afraid it would be. One problem, the friggin air dam is so low it scrapes on everything. Definitely not a car for NY/ long Island roads.

    I'm now looking for 05/06 Ford GT and a 997.2 Porsche GT3 to drive to try and make a decision on my next car, which will be in FL.

    It is Chinese, it’s for China
    It’s heavy not really that fast and derivative design. In short there’s nothing new or exceptional about it. It’s neither light nor clever nor unique, or particular earth shattering I. Terms of range or performance.

    But the Chinese will love it, and lotus is now a Chinese company with an electric halo car.
    0-60 under 3 secs and 7mins of driving if you’re using all the power l. In short who cares.

    Almost two years ago that I started this thread, it's been quite the journey.
    Looking forward to tonight's reveal, I am sure there are gonna be people on both sides of the fence and some will hate it/pick it apart and some will simply love it for what it is, the final realization of Zora's dream. :)

    i really really want to like this car.

    I'm a big fan ... HUGE fan ... of buttons. I still use a blackberry for chrissakes. But i'm not a big fan of a long, single-column of 20 buttons :( And that touchscreen ... personally, i hate all touchscreens ... but this looks like an un-balanced add-on.

    Not loving the final interior :(

    And I thank you for starting this thread!
    It has provided knowledge, information and entertainment for these two years.
    Glad the car will finally break cover. It's been a long 60 years!

    I'm with you on that row of buttons--it makes the passenger side look really claustrophobic.
