2011 Lotus Evora S

2011 Lotus Evora S

We know that Lotus is planning an extensive model overhaul, starting with a brand new Esprit supercar in 2013. However, that leaves a couple of years in between that Lotus’ current lineup will have to endure.

To keep sales--and profit levels--humming along in the meantime, Lotus will reportedly update several of its models, including adding revised versions of its Exige and Evora.

The information was revealed by Lotus CEO Dany Bahar who also hinted during a recent interview with Autocar that the revised Exige could debut at March’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

While no specific details on the updates have been revealed, it’s thought that the Evora will be receiving a new interior design in order to boost its quality to match rivals from Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. Lotus will even be sourcing its future interior components from German automotive parts supplier CSI, which currently has contracts with all of those rivals mentioned.

Further down the track Lotus also plans to launch more variants of the Evora beyond the current supercharged Evora S. Expect a new convertible model and possibly a stripped out high-performance version.
