  1. Not finalisation as such, but more about parts supply, which affects some cars more than others - all are delayed 2-3 weeks, some are delayed more (eg auto gearboxes)
  2. Ramp up much slower than expected - partly due to #1, partly wanting to ensure get quality right in all areas
  3. In theory no need to wait for bigger batches, but I suspect they don't want to deliver (for example) the first ten customer cars then have to pause and leave a gap
  4. They are having to re-stack the production schedules in light of latest info per #1 and need to do this before they can speak to individual customers
They're still building dealer demos and the pressure is on to get all the UK ones completed and out, as they can at least then start test drives. If there's a short gap after that until first customer cars, that's a bit easier to manage.

At the moment I'll be surprised if any customer cars are delivered in July, but I think the dealer demos will be, probably in week 3 or 4.
If they are dealer cars, then they have just got the silent treatment like the rest of us. As of yesterday .. nothing

I think I saw that post on Facebook it I think it’s been removed - but the poster said his dealer had said this
I think I saw that too, but not substantiated. The dealers have no info on customer cars and don't know when their demo cars will arrive.

Its undoubtedly a great car, probably the best usable super car there has been in the last 15 years, BUT, the design for me has always been very ordinary. From a small distance it looks like a TT and over the years ir and the TT have hardly changed at all IMO. I considered one with a gated gear box, but the exterior shape just needs more for me, something a bit less German...... a bit more...italian.....

I love the cabriolet. Looks like some weird concept car from the 90s

OK, Lotus need CUP sizes before delivery as that affects stability on track. Thats why Jethro had an issue - no boobs as ballast to offset understeer. Simple maths
