So,

Sure there will be an influx of these coming through as the emails land. I4 deposit July `21. Build date of October `23.

And you v6 boys thought you were getting a raw end of the deal!
I got August 23 build from a July 7th deposit. Doubt they will hold firm so let's call it winter 23!

Just received this. April now turned into July 23! FFS not sure how much of this I can take.

I’m seriously in two minds now on pulling the plug. No confidence in it going further back. It’s not unrealistic to think with current production that this could be Autumn 23.

FYI deposit 8th July 21 i4

30th July deposit = Nov 23 build.
Really not sure what to do now. I was expecting summer 23 despite being told a few weeks ago Q2 23, but the back end of next year is gutting.

I got the same email stating build of August 2023.

I deposited on the launch day at 3pm (Can't remember the date - what was it?).

I was told that I was very near the top of the i4 list. Sadly I need the airline industry to recover a bit before I can justify the purchase and they've just announced the longest recession in British history spanning all of 2023 so I think I am going to have to drop out.

July 8th 21 i4 now July 23 FFS!
Good for you that's it a month earlier than mine but surely they should be building in sequence or planning to 9 months out? i.e. my July 7th deposit should be the same month as you! It can't be down to spec/ colour etc this far out!

12th July deposit - Dec 23 build date!!!!

I think I flipped from v6 to i4….. can’t remember it’s been that long ago

I must have ordered the very limited edition….

Lotus won’t have me as a customer if the used car market tanks or if anything interesting is released until then. I’m looking at you EV Porsche coupe and BMW M2 CS, or anything that’s remotely tempting….. 😂
At least interest rates won’t be an issue for me to worry about…..

Could just be a day apart, of course, if they fall over a month end......

The big question is will they really hold the launch price for another year!!

Yes it's difficult but he said in the last video that he was keeping the price but the way I heard it only locked in deposit holders but who knows, I certainly don't believe a word of it.
