News Lotus Will Show New Sports Car This Summer

Lotus Will Show New Sports Car This Summer

Lotus aspires to gain ground on a global scale and hopes to do so with this new sports car


  • Lotus is owned by Geely.

  • This car is expected to broaden its appeal globally.


It was only last week that Lotus and Alpine announced they were teaming to jointly develop an electric sports car. From what we gather, this is not it. Lotus currently sells three sports cars and all are extremely niche products.

The Elise, Exige, and Evora are all unique sports cars that are aimed at specific buyers – this is especially relevant in the Elise and Exige’s cases. In a bid to increase its appeal, Lotus will reveal a global sports that will attract a far broader audience.

This is the extent of the news story shared by Automotive News Europe (subscription required). The Lotus Esprit was the last “mainstream” sports car from Lotus and there were indications that it was going to make a return. In fact, back in 2010, at that year’s Paris Auto Show, Lotus revealed no fewer than six concepts including a new Elise, an Elan, an Esprit, and three others including hybrids. The small car company’s plans changed drastically, and quickly after the show, as we all know.

As far as what this new sports car will be and which other performance cars it will compete against is unknown. We’ll have to wait for the summer.
