Track review:


You beat me to it! Solid ending to the proto on track review..

Has it got you excited for the production version?
More than a little. I don’t doubt some tuning is required, but the Emira already feels like a Lotus capable of carrying the traits we love forwards, while convincing us it has what it takes to rival Porsche and give the whole firm a brighter future.

It's pushing at an open door of course. We know cars like this have an expiry date. The pity is that what replaces them won’t be able to replace the sensations the Emira delivers. Get one while you can.

Favourite quote: "These days we demand bandwidth, a car that can frazzle our minds on an empty backroad, but is also comfortable, reliable and usable the rest of the time. The Emira is that, the Porsche Cayman thwarter that brings Lotus kicking and screaming into the 21st century."

Hear that? The Cayman has been thwarted.

Main story is tantalizing.
Be sure to see the hidden Drive test link at end of story.
Best line: " Get one while you can."
