New Lotus F1 car finally gets going but how far behind are the …

Posted on February 7, 2014 The Lotus E22, the final car to hit the track in this pre season build up, should finally get a run out today at Jerez, Spain. It is due to be given a shakedown in preparation for the crucial Bahrain tests starting in a couple of weeks. Pastor Maldonado will drive the car and he tweeted, Finally back to the track work, planing a filming day in Jerez today. Looking forward to drive the new E22. Lotus elected to skip the Jerez group test last week, which in retrospect looks like a reasonable plan given the troubles that Renault powered teams encountered. Most severe was the Red Bull team, which managed only 21 laps of running. The buzz among F1 teams and insiders ...

Tesla, Detroit Electric, Smart ED. and Zap have all used Lotus design elements. The Tesla Roadster is based on the Lotus Elise. The now defunct Dodge Circuit was based on the Lotus Europa platform. The Roadster shares many of its chassis components with the Lotus Elise. The Elise chassis is one of the lightest and well tuned of all sport cars. The Tesla uses Elise design elements, but the materials are carbon fiber. Zap had entered into a project with Lotus to design and manufacture a super fast SUV. The specs were incredible given the state of the technology in 2007…no word to date on the project. 2002, the Lotus company was acquired by Proton Malaysia. The company continues to design ...

GREAT BRITISH SPORTS CARS Lotus Esprit Classic Car May 1996 Colin Chapman s flair and vision produced the remarkable Lotus Esprit 21 years ago. Though impaired by cash problems, it grew into one of the true greats, says Tony Dron As a driver, it s hard not to love this car in true Lotus tradition it became a great driving machine, with extraordinary roadholding and an unusual subtlety of handling.

Lotus Position Holy smokes! There is no way I can respond to all your comments, but thank you everyone for writing. This time I will discuss one common thread that many of you raised: what exactly is Tesla’s relationship with Lotus? Along the way, I will address a few other threads from your feedback. Once again, I am writing without Marketing’s filters, so I apologize in advance for any “pc” slips. Much as I love cars, I am the first to admit that neither I, my co-founder, Marc Tarpenning, nor our original investor (and chairman of our board), Elon Musk, is an automotive engineer. We have quite a few excellent automotive engineers at Tesla now, but three years ago, we did not. (Several ...

Detroit Electric launches a Lotusbased EV sports car SkiddMark

Detroit Electric launches a Lotus-based EV sports car If it worked for Tesla, then why not do the same? That s the thought that first arose when seeing the new Detroit Electric SP:01. The Silicon Valley startup began its journey on the back of a Lotus chassis, so it s hardly surprising that Motor City s newest car maker has followed suit. Tesla stopped building the Roadster in January 2012, a move that was very much in Tesla s plan meanwhile Lotus continue to offer, what they call their Small Car Platform as a turnkey solution for other car makers. A spokesperson for Lotus Cars said they were pleased to see the new Detroit Electric SP:01 being launched, Just as Vauxhall/Opel was with ...

Lotus In Even Deeper Than You Realized Car and Driver

Lotus: In Even Deeper Than You Realized At last year s Paris auto show. Lotus CEO Dany Bahar surprised the assembled press with six concept cars to show the way forward for the brand, complete with specs and production plans. Skeptics were puzzled about the unprecedented bean-spilling, which resembled an investor pep rally more than a press conference. There was a city car—later christened Ethos—a new Elise, a new Esprit supercar, a new Elan to be positioned between the Elise and the Esprit, the Elite front-engine sports car, and a sedan called the Eterne. Or, to be more accurate, there were styling mock-ups of these proposed vehicles. We couldn t help but wonder about this procession ...
