Does anyone drive by the Charlotte dealership regularly? I'm down in weddington/Waxhaw and don't make it over on Independence often.

Curiosity will have me driving over there just to see if any of our cars have shown up but knowing one of you drives by regularly will save me some trips.

I'm also in Weddington and just texted with the sales manager at Lotus of Charlotte. His cars haven't shown up yet but I expect it will be any day now.

Do you know where you are in allocation line? I had a deposit with Lotus of Charlotte in July 2022 and was #51. I then switched my deposit to Lotus Cape Fear in December 2022 and was around #4 or 5 in line after the FE 1.0's.
I am in the 20's. Submitted my build this August and was recently told my build would be Dec/Jan, with expected delivery in March.

I'm actually in Atlanta (and work in Manhattan during the week). Chose Charlotte for delivery over Atlanta after "interviewing" both.

Sounds like you and I are in the same FE 2.0 batch in Charlotte. Given the recent news about FE 2.0 cars on boats, I’m asking Santa for an early delivery miracle. Hey, it can’t hurt! 😀

Sounds like a reason to toast a beer on delivery day!

Mines a DV. We will have a good mix of colors.

Ha. That's great. I'm sure we will see each other around quite a bit.

Transferred my Naples Reservation to Cape Fear in Dec 22, got lucky with a FE 1.0 Nimbus Grey, white leather seat like in my profile image, VIN received last week, hopefully will get to Shawn in the next couple weeks. ……

I got a Nimbus grey as well, lower black pack, tan interior, black wheels and yellow calipers. I originally went for the dark verdant, but then thought it looked too black if not in sunlight. If it was like a British racing green I would have stuck with that.

For the Carolinians in the Raleigh area, we should coordinate a show up at the cars and coffee at CECC on the last Sat of the month, and/or the 2nd Sat at their dealership, both of US-70…..I am usually there, I have a Black 718 Spyder…….

would be nice for a color variety showing of Emira’s……and very fitting venues

I'm in Raleigh and I'm definitely in for this. Mine is also Nimbus and it was headed to towards Baltimore last week and then on to Cape Fear. It sounds like Cwolf and I have the same spec except for the wheels!

Spec
(Same as Harry's: )

Nimbus w/ lower black pack
Silver wheels w/ yellow calipers
Tan leather interior

I ordered mine from Flow in Winston. I am #4 in line. Got the VIN, hope they are getting deliveries this week.
I'm also with Flow. Originally #11 in line there, but I suspect that moved up at some point. They got an FE 1. 0 allocation of 12.

No VIN yet for me, I haven't heard anything from Ken at all yet.

Ken is off today. I called over there to get someone else and they confirmed 3 Emiras have arrived. Two are grey (now I am not sure which grey). Don't know the other color. Ken is back in tomorrow. I am hoping one of them is mine. But if not, should be in next shipment. Also, I had to ask them to locate the VIN, it wasn't something that was proactively sent to me. What color did you get?

Charlotte Lotus has only received one Emira in Dark Verdant so far. Surprising based on what other dealerships have received.

Nice! I think we actually briefly met at the test drive in Winston last year, you had the second test drive of the day? I’ll be swinging by flow lotus on Wednesday to see v2 colors and submit my configuration for hopefully summer delivery. They still aren’t allowed to release the cars right?

Thanks for the info! I feel a bit better about not hearing from him yet.

My spec is Magma Red, with black roof, silver wheels and tan interior.
