Fear not, however, because Lotus appear to have its priorities in check. In an interview with Car Magazine
, Lotus chief executive Jean-Marc Gales confirmed that an SUV is still a possibility, but its focus is still on what it does best: making extremely light and extremely fast sports cars. “We need technical partners, which we are currently looking for,” he said. “We are building a prototype, for testing at the end of this year . But for now we are working flat out on the sports cars.” So what do we have to look forward to from Lotus in 2017? The new Evora Roadster is coming this year, and will retain the agility of its hardtop sibling according to Gales.
