I'm on the hunt for a vehicle to purchase now and eventually sell/trade in on the Emira. What's everyone else driving until your Emira arrives?

Interesting you asked this question, reason being when I went to my local dealer (flow lotus Winston Salem NC) the salesman offered me an Evora at more than 5000$ discount, then told me they would give me top trade in value (whatever that is!) when my Emira comes in. Was actually tempting! But decided just to wait.

I have a workhorse EV estate for commuting and for travelling with my dogs…. So that will be my main drive! Emira will be the weekend fun car

I will continue having my two Mercedes E-class estates (one for me, one for my wife). They are really nice cars, one is a 350 diesel, the other one a 250 petrol, both around 10 years old.
And I will keep them once the Emira arrives.

My V6 Mustang daily driven since 2017 (I/E/tune) and will keep it for that duty (fun fact: British GT3 racecar Ginetta G55 shares the same V6 base engine). Was planning to get a GR Supra alongside it til the C8 stole that thunder. Now Emira is stealing the C8's thunder. I'm being flip floppy but these are exciting times to have this problem.

I own several cars but looking to replace my 10 year old 911 C2S (997 3.8L manual) for the Emira. The Porsche has brought me lots of joy throughout the years, but the Emira is checking off all the right boxes as potentially my last combustion engine toy.

I'm looking to buy the new Ford Bronco and rock that with the top off until I can carve up mountain roads when the Emira gets here!

I use my Evora daily. I think a medal is coming my way, as I'm on 85k miles and still the original clutch!
Bell and Colvill keep threatening a new cluth at £4.5k (£90 is the clutch, the other £4.4k is taking every nut and bolt off!)
I aim to keep driving it until I get an Emira.
Hmmm, maybe my track day on Aug 14th will secure the clutch's destiny!

I'll let you all know.

Placed a deposit on the New TVR Griffith back in 2015, but 6 years on, there is still only one prototype in existence and no signs of a factory as yet! So pulled my deposit and now put on the Emira👍
Just sold my Tuscan S, so currently without a weekend toy, so hopefully production will ramp up fairly quickly👍
anyone know what the production numbers are likely to be, once production starts?

Can’t wait for the Emira to be built. Driving a BMW i8 at the moment. I used to have an Evora. Excited to get back into the Lotus brand.

How has the i8 been for you? Such a cool looking car, but I've read mixed reviews on ownership.

Is that the GR? Jealous as we don't get them stateside. As fun as the journalists say?
It is a great steer. Perfect for the roads we have over here in the UK. Think more characterful Golf R. Shame you guys don't get it in the USA. Obviously been soo much big car love in USA over the years that Toyota don't think you want it! ;)

Agreed and unfortunate. However, the US market seems to be buying ~4k Golf R's a year - which isn't nothing. Not sure if that's impactful to overall Yaris GR production and/or if that's worth federalizing (and training reps, bringing in the additional parts for servicing, etc.), though.

Nevertheless, enjoy it for me / us, too!
