    New Elise Photoshoot in Malibu

    Re: New Elise Photoshoot in Hollywood

    Great pictures but I'm absolutely no fan of their interpretation of a future Elise. Why do they have to create a Boxster rival when they fill a hole in the market they have all for themselves with the present Elise..

     So more people can get in and out of it, and enjoy driving it. Current car is too limited in appeal.

    But there is such a car... It's called the Boxster.

    Wow beautiful, not liking the weight though... it was such a special car being so light.. not it could become an average sports car... fantastic architecture, anyone got more info on the location specifically.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Tinseltown has a new Brat Pack. Five stars that stole the Los Angeles Motor Show.

    The Esprit already has iconic movie credits to its name – “The Spy Who Loved Me,” “For Your Eyes Only,” “Pretty Woman,” and “Basic Instinct.” And its chemistry with the leading ladies is hard to ignore.

    Now it’s joined on the red carpet by three new starlets – Elise, Elan and Eterne – hot young numbers that have had Variety and TMZ buzzing.

    We took them up to the Hills to our rented Pierre Koenig pad, invited our leggiest neighbours, and made cocktails by the pool. Purienne brought his camera. The girls took in the view and topped up their tans. The stars felt right at home amid the beauty and modernism, and were able to relax away from the limelight.

    Robert Evans, Dashiell Hammett, David Lynch, Frank Lloyd Wright, Raymond Chandler, Bret Easton Ellis, and Hunter S. Thompson heard the ruckus and rang the doorbell. Things got pretty wild.

    The afternoon became a cover story. The stars and their entourage went joyriding on Mulholland Drive. The girls didn’t bother changing. Maybe it was lust for fame – or proximity to it – swaying their judgment. We parked and watched the sun recede behind Century City, waiting for a text that would lead us that night’s celebrity soiree.

     Don't know about this one

    But I'm sure that this second one is the Stahl House (CSH#22) designed by Pierre Koenig for the Case Study Houses program in 1959.

    absolutely stunning location!

    hey Gauss,

     

    as the lotus rennteam expert i have a question for you, is lotus gonna stop all current models, as they release the new ones? or will the likes of the evora and 2 Eleven and the other cars carry over into 2012 when the esprit is launched?

    Moser, a very good question. Smiley

    In the European market, the Elise R and the Elise SC have already stopped production. Their 2ZZ-GE engine doesn't comply with the EURO 5 emission standards. Only the facelifted Elise S with its 1.6 Liter engine is currently on sale, along with the Evora and the supercharged Evora S.

    Apparently the 2-Eleven is supposed to be discontinued when the engine supply runs out. You also can't order the 2-11 with the optional SVA Kit anymore, which is mandatory if you want it to be registered for road use (also in the UK). So now, if you're still lucky to get one, then it will solely be for track use.

    As for all the rest, I can only speculate. Many of the former workers at Lotus either hold new positions within the company or have quit. Almost the entire structure and management has changed. Many of these people to whom some of us had contact are now gone. They are also bound to secrecy of course and it's now extremely difficult to get some inside information. Smiley

    Though I also want to add that the new team at Lotus is top notch! But surely they demand top money too Smiley

    Personally I can't imagine how Lotus is supposed to keep the pot boiling when they are only offering the Evora and an entry level Elise until the release of the new models. The Evora has been praised with excellent reviews (bar the build quality) but it's simply not selling well.
    There are already rumours floating around which say that the Elan is currently on hold.

    Now there's the partnership with tuner Mansory, you can see the customized Evora here :

    http://www.rennteam.com/forum/thread/20198989/Is_It_Always_Wise_to_Customise/page1.html

    Lotus has recently published their new "Lotus Originals" shop (http://www.lotusoriginals.com), with expensive clothing articles and luxury items. This is primarily to promote their new style/standing and future exclusivity. Needless to say, that the majority of current Lotus fans is already mowning (e.g. a keyring is 104 €).

    Maybe Lotus will surprise us, and release one or two limited models based on the chassis of the Evora (the VVA platform, which is a piece of art and very versatile), or the former Exige with a different engine. Some sort of small production unit (cheap in development) to temporarily bridge the gap and bring some money into the company to finance the marketing of the real products (which will start in 2013 with the Esprit).

    Time will tell... Smiley

    I've  said it before: Lotus now seems to have an awful lot of chiefs for so few indians. Smiley

    Though I really hope everything works out well for Lotus, I can't help feeling that their recent startling firework display of concept cars is really just a desperate "retreat towards the front", to translate a German phrase.

    Re: New Elise Photoshoot in Hollywood

    thanks for the info Gauss, wow putting the new elan on hold, why on earth would they do that.....isnt that supposed to be a top seller and competitor to the 911?  I fear for lotus, and really hope they are able to get their cars right, I love the brand, and want to see it succeed


    Re: New Elise Photoshoot in Hollywood

    The rear of the car looks really good. The front to much like an old Honda, but the girl is distracting from the ugly front lights!


    Re: New Elise Photoshoot in Hollywood

    Someone mentioned Honda?
