Lotus Cars

With several Formula One titles to its credit, a singular - albeit significant - win at Indianapolis in 1965, and a co-starring role with Roger Moore in a couple of Bond flicks, Lotus should be well positioned some sixty years after its founding to take America and its top 1% by veritable storm. Regrettably, with each change in ownership Lotus seems to get further from creating that storm. Models that had (after a fashion) momentum, such as the Esprit and smaller Elise, are gone, while the more recent Evora took a hiatus. Thankfully, an udpated Evora 400 is now back, ready to take all if not most of your Cayman budget.

With but one offering, today's Evora 400 is the brand's least expensive, most expensive and most fun-to-drive.

Lotus recalls 2008-2011 Elise, Exige and 2011 Evora over fire fear

Lotus is recalling 860 vehicles after discovering that the oil cooler hose could detach from its fitting. Should the hose separate, it could spray oil on one of the lightweight car's tires, giving new meaning to the phrase "sudden loss of grip." The other case is, believe or not, more dire, as the spraying oil could hit the engine and ignite. Of course, neither situation is desirable, hence the recall.
Lotus recalling certain 2011 Evora S models for possible oil leak, fire

Last year about 80 examples of the 2011 Lotus Evora S were recalled over an issue with the oil feed pipe. The same number of 2011 Evora S', but with different manufacture dates, are back in the recall box again for a very similar issue; this time it's the engine oil cooler hose that could rupture and spray oil either onto the rear wheels or a hot engine part. Neither of those cases is good, and the latter could potentially lead to a fire.
Lotus Elise, Exige recalled over oil line fire risk

Lotus is recalling 451 examples of the Elise and Exige from the 2007 and 2008 model years. The cars in question, built from December 1, 2006 to October 31, 2007 could be affected by an oil cooler line that detaches from its fitting. If the line comes loose it could release oil onto the engine and possibly start a fire, or onto a tire and potentially cause a crash.
