That’s the problem nothing else really floating my boat - as I certainly wouldn’t get a Porsche
Same here. Nothing else excited me...

The Aston Vantage is awesome and you can get the hardtop coupe with the 7 speed manual, but it's easily $50k more than the Emira FE and w/o many options.

Then there's the 3 pedal Supra coming out (or out already?) for like $40k less than the Emira FE and a ton of potential and aftermarket support.

I'm also now November production, with locked in spec':

Previous email (on 12th July) stated a delay from August to October:

My original deposit was 11th July 21.

(No Tracker or Homelink, manual 'box.)

I must say I'm surprised at the September emails - we received a bulletin email at work including the variations of emails being sent to customers (I.e. October, November & 2023). Was no mention of September ones at all 🤔

And sadly for me, no mention of any demonstrator arrivals either...

To be fair my September confirmation doesn't say which year :D

The problem is I've had most of them 🤣
Ferrari is the one left to tick the box,Mclaren I'd love but avoiding like the plague with potential issues and costs.

Ideally I'd want something that would hold its value whilst being a toy for 6-9 months if I was to switch to an i4 delivery next year for example....

Again,will sleep on it,just sick of these delays and don't trust that this will be the last either

Do it!
The one saving grace for me is my impulse decision to buy the Ferrari. It has taken the place of the Emira for the joy factor. Bloody love it.

I would highly recommend any F430 - it is the one to make the next big move.
Coupe F1s are a similar price to the Emira - though I concede you need to have your eyes fully open.

I have a Ferrari related event booked in every weekend up to October!

Long time lurker but first post.
As many today, email with October production.
13 yrs I took possession of a Launch Evora in October but this time around I have no interest in a sports car for uk winter so I will certainly be looking to defer to March 23, as it seems many others are also thinking.
I am sure Lotus will try to resist this but there already seems to be a few people being offered cancellation spots so I am pretty sure those looking at delivery in late 23 would jump at the the chance of a winter 22 slot.
At present we have a refundable deposit and no obligation until they call us 30 days before delivery is due- so I really think allowing early depositors to defer must be better than seeing them cancel.
I would be happy to switch to a base but I don’t think they will arrive in uk until very late 23/early 24.
However if they won’t allow me to defer I will probably look to switch to a base and get something else in the meantime.

Just had the September build and we will contact you re delivery soon…..mmmm, im off for my winter hibernation in late October so I don’t want delivery, guess it could be delayed more so I will no doubt accidentally miss the call until I find out from others if a planned delay until April is allowed.

If its a stop gap then there are loads of cars at half the price! 😍

Well, my email has confirmed my November build slot (December delivery)...which was what I was told at Goodwood. Probably means I have actually been bumped up the order given others' comments on here...funnily enough I'd be happy for my car to be registered in 2023 as I can see that making a minor difference to resale values, but not needing/wanting to defer to Spring as I am going to use as a daily driver anyway.

Originally Oct build Nov delivery. Moved to some unknown time in 2023... Lotus is getting a decent amount of deposit as interest free loan.

DV, no black pack, no privacy glass, manual, tan, home link, tracker, silver wheels, touring suspension.

Do we need a poll of :

# Want to defer to Spring 23
# Still happy to take Emira whenever she turns up
# Chucking the towel in - off to get myself some wheels 🛞 NOW
# Going to change my spec
# Want to change order to base model

They’ve invested £300 million, pretty sure they will be keen to be getting a return on that investment
