The key question is whether these will be prototypes or actual production models?To be fair, without a car to keep us warm we all do need some t-shirts and hats to keep us warm. The Emira could have its own "Early Deposit Collection" featuring words like "FAITH", "HOPE", and "PATIENCE".
When I got the Lotus email this morning I was sure it had to be another useless distraction that had nothing to do with the car. They sure know how to train those of us trying to join the ranks as first-time Lotus owners.
I've also heard that the reviews on the hats will come out next month but they won't have production versions of straps, logos or fabric.
On factory tour I was told there is / might be (you know how to interpret I’m sure..) a box containing a model of an Emira in your colour with a key and dust caps. The reason I took it seriously was because it had a price.
