It’s a sure sign of Spring when four legendary marques roll out their new supercars. Here’s what to look as the flowers begin to bloom: Maserati’s MC20, Porsche’s 911 Turbo S, the Lotus Eletra (“the world’s first hyper SUV EV), and Ferrari’s Purosangue. Get all the details here.
The new Lotus Emira – the marque’s last gas powered sports car – takes dead aim at Porsche’s 718 Cayman series. Lotus’ goal is to broaden its customer base, and anticipates a global market for 4,500 Emiras a year…a huge leap over the carmaker’s previous production figures.
Introduced at the 1962 Earls Court Motor Show, the Lotus Elan caused a sensation. Just 145 inches long on an 84-inch wheelbase, the Elan was a waif of a roadster. With a fiberglass body on a separate steel chassis, the Elan weighed 1,500 pounds.
Premier is proud to announce its exclusive partnership with Lotus Cars USA. For the first time, this provides a factory-sponsored program that allows Americans to lease the 2020 Lotus Evora GT, which Car & Driver magazine has described as a “special machine for the hard core” car enthusiast.
